CDS’ commitment to grow its business has taken a step forward this week with the appointment of two new regional sales managers.

London-based Simon Gregory, who has worked on projects with big names such as Facebook, Apple and the Royal Academy of Arts during his 30-year career in life safety systems, takes on the role in the South East.

His extensive pedigree includes stints with global heavyweights such as ADT and security services specialist G4S. He has huge technical experience in the design and implementation of fire alarms, security, CCTV and access control systems.

Zubair Gheewala will fulfil the same role in the South Midlands. A fellow veteran of global security systems giant ADT he has been working in the life safety systems arena for the past decade.

He has worked on projects for a wide range of high-profile customers and sectors, including social housing, hospitals, large industrial projects and numerous retail organisations.

MD Simon Abley explained: “Simon and Zubair both have impressive track records for expanding business for their previous employers, exceeding their sales targets and bringing in new customers. They both have the essential skills of all good sales managers – an ability to understand the detailed technical requirements of this very complex area and an understanding that, for example, industrial sites have totally different needs from healthcare settings. CDS has a 33-year track record of working with companies in these sectors as well as education, logistics, housing and the public sector.”

CDS’ clients include global property management company Greystar, which has a multi-billion-pound portfolio of large-scale rental properties, Nottingham Trent University, Leicestershire Police and numerous local authorities.
