Ever wondered what makes our staff tick? Or what they do when they’re not at work? Or maybe you just want to put a face to a name.
Whatever your reason for being on the page, scroll down to learn about Lincoln Security’s most valued asset. Our staff!
Operating somewhat behind the scenes at Lincoln Security, Nick Brown and David Speed are two of our Commercial Account Managers, dealing with a core group of our Utility & Critical National Infrastructure customers in what they describe as ‘The Engine Room’.
With a combined service of over 26 years, 12 years for Nick and 14 years for Dave have outstayed most of the furniture, but they’re by no means old relics. They’ve experienced their fair share of ups and downs over the years but as a great philosopher once said … If you want the rainbow, you’ve got to put up with the rain.
For this feature we thought we’d take the time to sit down with Nick & Dave to find out more about what makes them tick and pry some entertaining anecdotes out of them.
Starting off as an Locksmithing Engineer over 12 years, Nick has since progressed to becoming an account manager, primarily dealing with Lincoln Security’s utility customers. Nick specialises in mechanical and electromechanical locking solutions and is the company’s expert when it comes to security rated door sets. In 2019, Nick successfully completed the NEBOSH Occupational Health & Safety Recognition course. The course focuses on how organisations can improve employee safety, reducing workplace risks and creating better, safer working conditions.
Dave started out his fledgling career at a rival locksmith, spending three years there working as a bench locksmith and serving trade and domestic customers before joining Lincoln Security as an account manager in 2007. Specialising in high security locking solutions for Critical Nation Infrastructure customers, what Dave doesn’t know about locks isn’t worth knowing.
Nick – From starting as a trainee lock fitter on a large water utility contract I have swapped the van seat for the office chair, you might say im a Poacher turned gamekeeper but i still love to get hands on when an extra pair of hands are needed. In my spare time i enjoy running around after 6-year-old son Rory and 3-year-old daughter Alice and currently hold the title of Lincoln Security’s Lance Armstrong cycling 6 miles daily to work.
Dave – It doesn’t seem five minutes since I arrived at Lincoln Security all the way back in 2007 – bright eyed, bushy tailed and eager to make a mark. From fixing locks and cutting keys to managing a plethora of requirements from all of our Utility customers has been a very interesting and rewarding journey . Working here whilst being surrounded by a wealth of knowledge, has helped me develop exponentially. Also as my position has evolved over the years I occasionally don my hi-viz cape and carry out site surveys up and down the country as well.
Fun Fact – In his spare time, Nick enjoys visiting Owl Sanctuaries and Spice Museums
Fun Fact – Enjoys reading, art, motor racing and quizzes. Dave has an instagram page where he showcases his own digital art. Check it out by clicking here or search for DavidSpeedDesign
