As part of its strategic succession planning, Securitas Services North America has implemented changes in its executive leadership team. Greg Anderson, formerly president of Securitas USA’s Pacific Region, has become President and CEO of the company’s North American Guarding operations covering the U.S., Mexico and Canada. Jose Castejon, previously president of Securitas USA’s South Region, has assumed the position of Chief Operating Officer of North American Guarding.
With the change in leadership comes a change in structure. Securitas’ North America Division will be comprised of four specialized business units—North America Guarding, North America Electronic Security, Securitas Critical Infrastructure and Pinkerton. The new structure will improve the company’s ability to deliver targeted solutions and driver further focus, specialization and innovation in each of the business units’ respective markets.”
Santiago Galaz, the company’s prior CEO, has assumed the newly created position of Executive Chairman of North America. Bill Barthelemy, the previous COO, has taken on a senior advisory role in working closely with key Securitas clients.
