St Paul's Security Supervisor Nominated for Award

Company News, EMEA, Talent, Service Provider News

Iris Groenewald, a site supervisor for Axis Security's St Paul's Cathedral site, has been nominated for a 2019 Women in Security award.


Professional Security Magazine’s Women in Security Awards recognise and honour the accomplishments, contribution and value women bring to the security industry.


Iris was nominated after introducing a new 'People Watch' process at St Paul's which helps members of the security team identify and approach vulnerable individuals to ensure they get the help they require. She is also credited with increasing the operational efficiency of the team during her tenure and improving security response policies to stay ahead of emerging security threats.


Discussing the nomination, David Mundell, Axis Security managing director, said:

"As a site supervisor at St Paul’s Cathedral, Iris’ patient and professional manner has resulted in marked improvements on site. She is also positively supporting the officers who report to her, conducts herself with the utmost professionalism, and leads by example."


He also pointed out that policies Iris has implemented have a positive impact on vulnerable people in the vicinity of the cathedral.


As one London's most popular venues, St Paul's Cathedral attracts over 4,000 visitors every day. It also hosts countless high-profile events, many attended by the members of the British Royal family or Lord Mayor of London.
