Managing Director, Kingdom Services Group
A security professional, Terry Barton launched and developed Kingdom Security, driven by a desire for quality service and innovation.
It is now much more than just a security company. In addition to security solutions, Kingdom provides a range of services including cleaning, hygiene and janitorial supply, facilities management, environmental anti-little patrols and concierge services in the UK and Ireland. Three years ago, Kingdom India was established, providing similar services.
A trained solicitor, since 1993 Terry has turned Kingdom into a 5000-strong person multi-service company with a turnover of £100 million per annum. It has also established JobXpress, a recruitment company joint-owned between Kingdom and its training company Skill Centre.
Kingdom is accredited by all major UK quality assurance bodies and in 2016 Terry received a Finance Monthly CEO award in recognition of his outstanding leadership and achievements. Kingdom’s commitment to innovation in its industry, having created its very own e-learning training software for its staff, has seen it recognised with many accolades, including 1000 companies to inspire Europe in 2017.
“We had to be different to other security firms, so the company had to continually evolve and learn about our customers’ needs and desires, as well as embrace the latest technology and invest in our most important asset – our people,” Terry says on how Kingdom has stayed ahead of the curve.
