Spotlight: Keith Francis appointed as a Non-Executive Board member of Zinc.

10th December 2018

We’re excited to announce that we have appointed Keith Francis as a Non-Executive Board member of Zinc.

Keith's recent appointment is a positive reflection of the company’s rapid expansion and the increased demand for our adaptable industry-leading platform and notably, Synapse, our market-leading and award winning incident reporting and communications platform.

Keith is a very well-known figure within the security industry and we are delighted to have his focus in spearheading our further strategic reach into the new and growing markets. Keith brings over two decades of experience to the company and has a proven record in formulating strategy and vision for accelerated business growth. Notably, he was an integral part in Vision Security Group’s (VSG) formation and direction from its inception to achieving over £180m in business revenue in just 10 years. Following this, VSG was sold to support services giant, Compass Group where he held a Leadership and Strategic Director position for over 5 years until the recent sale to outsourced facilities management firm, Mitie becoming the second largest private security company in the UK.

Our CEO, Joe Zielinski, has worked with Keith in a professional consultation capacity for over 12 years, implementing a wide range of digital systems and solutions in order to help deliver his strategic directives within loss prevention and security for retail, corporate and supply-chain sectors working with major brands across the UK.

There is an enormous opportunity for Zinc and it’s business intelligence platform ahead; we couldn’t be happier with Keith joining our family to help our team and customers achieve continued success.

"There is a huge demand for businesses to replace people with technology by optimising manpower levels, aiding decision making, reducing response times and streamlining day-to-day operations with innovative digital software. I’m excited to tap into the endless gaps and opportunities within the security and property sectors to help build a better connected, intelligent and safer world.

Zinc have market-leading technology, their reputation with customers is unmatched and it is an obvious choice for me to work with them strategically to grow the business in the coming years."
