At Spearfish, we manage physical security risks to protect our clients



The Spearfish management team are a dynamic and experienced group, who between them have a wide range of skills and experience.  Our chairman is Lord West, the former Minister for Security and Counter-Terrorism.  Dan Hooton runs the business as Managing Director, assisted by Grant White, Operations Director and Quentin Brook, Commercial Director.  John Smith completes the team as our second Non-Executive Director, bringing with him a wealth of corporate security experience.

How we work

We report directly to clients’ management, in effect acting as the de-facto security expert, which is perfect for companies that do not have their own in-house security team.  This provides the benefits of a partner that knows and understands your company, and can make informed decisions to help you keep your people safe and get the job done.

We also support existing in-house security teams looking to outsource an element of their security– an excellent solution for  larger corporations. Having a team of ex-corporate security advisors on hand who know and understand the challenges a Corporate Security Director will face is an extremely valuable resource.

A British-owned business, Spearfish have operated in many countries around the world in both permissive and hostile environments. Recent areas of operation include the Indian Ocean, Northern Nigeria, Pakistan, Indonesia and Somalia.
