Perimeter protection solutions provider Heras has made a strategic appointment as it continues to expand its team and build for growth.

The UK-based company has appointed Jason Sharpe as its Head of Operations UK.

Sharpe is relishing the challenge of growing the commercial operations arm of the business – including developing key accounts, sales channels and supply chain – as well as strengthening its servicing and maintenance support.

Heras sees this as having huge growth potential for sites that simply can’t afford downtime if entrance control systems are not working efficiently.

Sharpe has a background in healthcare and medical devices and, more recently, in the oil and gas industry. He also has an impressive career track record of driving growth through ensuring the right processes are in place, refining those processes, nurturing talent and building teams and promoting a strong health and safety culture through a people-first approach.

Commenting on his new role, Sharpe said: “I’m joining Heras at a very exciting time, as we have a very strong and ambitious management team who have worked hard over the last 12–18 months to create a platform that is a springboard for growth.

“We want to double down on our expertise of offering solutions to meet customers’ needs, including asset protection, facility protection, reducing site downtime and security breaches, and helping site owners to increase people’s safety.

“The entire team at Heras are all focused on achieving the business’s potential, which, fundamentally, is based on looking after our customers and providing them with products, solutions and support that meet their exact needs.”

David Owen, Country Manager, Heras’s UK added: “Jason’s appointment is a significant addition to the team – because of the accomplishments in his career that have taken other businesses to the next level in terms of growth.

“He joins a very motivated and committed team of people at Heras and his skillset adds an extra dimension in terms of capabilities that underpin our singular focus of achieving growth through our ability to respond to the needs of our customers.”
