Cundall has expanded their security consultancy specialism into Australia, with the appointment of Peter Whitehead. Peter, who will lead the Australian security consultancy specialism, has over 25 years’ industry experience, delivering major projects both in Australia and the UK.

He has a huge amount of experience in the design and engineering of high technology electronic systems including video surveillance, access control and integrated control systems in a wide range of sectors including Critical Infrastructure, Hospitals, Correctional Facilities, Hotels, Casinos, Stadia, Defence, Industrial and Premium Commercial Buildings.

This key appointment is one of eleven security specialists in the last 12 months, with Cundall securing some significant security consultancy appointments with global clients.

Darren Wood, Director of Cundall’s Global Security Consultancy specialism, said “I have known Peter for 10 years and am really excited he has chosen to join us to lead our security consultancy offering in Australia. By appointing Peter we are able to provide truly global coverage and bring further specialist expertise and experience in various aspects of security to our clients, who see the need for security as critical to ensure they keep their people safe and their business secure.”

In Australia, Cundall has witnessed a demand for this service from their existing portfolio, and has seen the appointment of Peter as the ideal chance to add to the range of services they can offer to their clients.

Peter will collaborate with Cundall’s global security consultancy team to provide a complete service offering, with the aim to secure and deliver new business in Australia, as well as supporting existing global contracts in the Asia Pacific region.

Peter Whitehead, Associate said “I am really excited to join Cundall. The security consultancy specialism has grown significantly since its launch 18 months ago which demonstrates our clients really value the service we can offer. I am looking forward to bringing the specialism to the Australian market, sharing the domain knowledge we have across the globe, and developing a market leading security consultancy”.
