A well-known and respected industry figure, Evans will act as Amberstone Technology’s Commercial Director, with a view to developing the company’s position as one of the foremost suppliers of intelligent protection and analytic solutions in the UK and Europe.

Evans has been in the security industry for over 30 years and joins Amberstone Technology from Kings Security, where he spent 14 years as its Chief Operating Officer. Prior to that he was Head of National Accounts with Protection 1 Security Solutions and he therefore brings extensive knowledge of integrated security solutions to this new role.

It’s a dynamic organisation that is able to adapt to the needs of the rapidly changing security industry and, having got to know some of the key players in the company, I feel a great deal of synergy with them and their objectives. I’m also very excited to be joining at a time when the company has plans to expand into overseas markets – something that represents a tremendous commercial prospect.’

In his role Evans will focus on the development of new opportunities in line with the company’s strategic growth plan, which includes expansion into mainland Europe, as well as developing the use of its technical within new vertical sectors.

Having known Steve for some time, I’m thoroughly looking forward to working closely with him as we take Amberstone Technology to the next level of success – both at home and abroad.’
