Northern's security manager triumphs at industry awards asset 1

Northern Rail has been celebrating after another valued team member was honoured at an industry award evening. Martyn Guiver, Head of Crime Management was awarded the ‘In-House Security Manager of the Year’ title at this year’s Security Excellence Awards after helping reduce crime across the Northern network.

The award was presented to Martyn who beat off tough competition from eight other nominees, all of whom demonstrated excellence and inspiration in their role.

Judges praised Martyn, 44, from Stockport, for reducing costs while improving quality, developing the concept for Northern to take on ownership of CCTV at its stations from Network Rail; an industry first.

He comments: “My team and I have worked hard to get Northern to where it is today. We have had to be creative and innovative with limited resources to get results and we’ve achieved a couple of industry firsts long the way. Reducing crime on our network with my rail response officers has really been my biggest triumph and it is so satisfying to see all our hard work.”

The Security Excellence Awards were held on Wednesday 17 October 2012 at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, London.
