Security Cameras

Judy Atkinson

Judy Atkinson

Chief Growth Officer, Earnflex Limited

Judy joined the security world in 2007. Prior to that, she has always been in sales but also worked overseas, for over 15 years looking after 5000 holiday visitors a week as an Operations Manager. She started in 2007, working for Reliance Security for their Keyholding and Patrol division. As this industry was completely new to her, she learned how all security was delivered from guarding to alarm responses and technical solutions that would reduce risk. She has then spent her career working for security companies from the very small to the very large, selling into the industry and looking after the operations delivery from small to multi-sited national contracts.

Her key focus has always been on understanding what the risk is and how it can be operationally delivered at the highest level. This has stretched to running CAT II ARCs. Judy has built her career on understanding all security markets including the public sector, blue chip corporations, museums, and the education sector. However, she prefers to understand the requirements and to offer a blended solution that is right for the customer.

Since joining Lodge Service International Ltd last year, one of the oldest security companies in the UK and still family-owned and run she has been able to push forward her passions which include assisting in making security more diverse. The fact that the number of females in security has only risen by 1% during her career, drives her with her team to make our industry as diverse as possible and to understand and change the reasons as to why that figure had not risen. She and Lodge believe this is the only way to improve this.

To this end, she belongs to IFPO and ASIS International – UK Chapter, is on the working group for The Women’s Security Society, and is a massive advocate for ED & I, to therefore bring more young women into all areas of the security industry and to stop Violence Against Women and Girls. As a mother of a 21-year-old daughter who lives in the east of London and has had more incidents of violence and harassment against her than should be allowed in 2023, this is what also drives her to make life better for all. Also understanding that a more diverse security team is part of that. She wants to see how the private security sector can work together to assist with that.
