Adam Benham, founder of Apollo Security Division, passionately and painstakingly crafted his company with a difference. After working in the security industry for 10 years, he decided to strike out and set up a security company that would operate the right way, and not just look to drive up profits at the cost of standards. Spurred on by the birth of his son in 2014, Adam officially incorporated the company, with the goal of making the areas his company works in safer, not just for the benefit of his family, but everyone’s families.
Ever since, driven by that goal, Apollo Security Division has gone from strength to strength, providing clients throughout London, Hertfordshire, and Essex with some of the highest quality security services available. Being a great service provider means having complete and total confidence in the people providing those services, and we’re proud to have the best pros in the business working with us.
Eric Yourell, has had a varied working history, working in some of the strangest professions, ranging from Shoe Repairer, Supervisor for security at the U.N to representing O2 nationally to name a few. He owes his success to five simple words "one way to find out". Eric says, "far to often I have seen people miss out on opportunity because they are worried that they may get it wrong, every time I was given a chance or asked if i could do something, I would say, there is only one way to find out, if i break it then, no, but if i do it the Yes. lets give it a go! now with two children, Eric is in a new chapter of his life and loving the challenge in a whole new way. The real way to look and the road ahead, whatever that may be, is, is this the right thing to do. That is why I'm proud to be at Apollo, that is the heart of the business. It's not, "ohh we and make so much money", its "how is this going to work for us and our clients?" money is last on the list.
"Kate has been with Apollo for just over a year now, but the impact she has made in that time is very apparent. Kate says "joining the family business has been a very challenging yet rewarding experience.
Over the last year I have gone from strength to strength learning and achieving something new every week. When working for family you can't just "switch off" your mind is constantly in overdrive because you want things to run as smoothly as possible and foremost provide an outstanding service to your clients.
Past roles have given me the wealth of experience to draw from to easily tackle the complex administrative issues a security company such as Apollo see on a daily basis.
Kate is responsible for many different aspects of the business from the operations (Pay and Invoicing) to logistics to which we are proud to say that the way Apollo's administrative and logistical process now operate is solely down to Kate's input. Which has meant that our administrative team and front line operational teams work in unison which has allowed us to ensure a effective delivery process from instruction to delivery.
However Kate's contributions do not stop there, Kate also championed the care and recognition internal process. This is where we use our social media to recognise our team and it’s been very well received by all.."
