Cityguard chief joins security association board

New director plans to focus on training and development.
Caroline Halton

Cityguard NZ  general manager Caroline Halton was elected to the board of the New Zealand Security Association at its annual general meeting.

She was one of three nominees who addressed the meeting, followed by a vote for two directors. David Proud also retained his seat on the national board.

Halton focused on the security community’s need to elevate its perception and to focus on training and development of the frontline security officers.

Halton has 16 years’ experience in the industry in a variety of roles ranging from recruitment and HR through to operations management and business development.

Her election will allow her to traverse issues such as careers versus jobs; the feasibility and desirability of the living wage; more meaningful education for security personnel; and driving change in the industry.

Her role with Cityguard also equips her to be a voice for the sector’s smaller security organisations and to represent those businesses at a board level.
