Sunday, May 17, 2015

Once again, the Supervisory Board of the Securitas Holding GmbH confirmed the long-standing CEO Manfred Buhl in his position as Chairman of the Management Board until the end of the year 2018.

"At the beginning of the year, I had already been approached with the request to prematurely extend the cooperation – and I was happy to agree," said CEO Manfred Buhl. "I am grateful for the trust placed in me. We look back on two successful years, during which we managed to expand our expertise as a solution provider. The confidence expressed by the Supervisory Board confirms the good work performed by our management team, as well as our strategy," Buhl added.

As early as in 2003, Securitas Deutschland already received an award from the Swedish Chamber of Commerce for the product of integrated security solutions, which are characterized by the integration of technical elements into Securitas products and services. Securitas has technical expertise and, as a partner, it develops security concepts for customers from various industries. According to the latest Lünendonk study, Securitas is the market leader in Germany, with 19,000 employees; the parent company is the listed Securitas AB in Stockholm.

"Thanks to the technical developments and the increased need for security, as well as the consistent investment in know-how, technical facilities and basic and advanced training, we managed to further expand our integrated concepts," says Manfred Buhl. "We are well positioned in this respect, and we will further increase our commitment."

Since 2002, Manfred Buhl (born in 1952) has been acting as Chairman of the Management Board of Securitas Deutschland. He is Vice-President of the Federal Association of German Security Companies (BDSW, Bundesverband der Sicherheitswirtschaft) and represents German interests in the Confederation of European Security Services CoESS. Moreover, in May of this year, he was confirmed as a Board Member of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in the Federal Republic of Germany.
