Zaun raids rival for industry champion Steve Bailes
The Zaun Group has secured an industry champion from a market leader to spearhead selling its integrated portfolio and turnkey solutions.
Steve Bailes has joined Zaun as integrated business development manager from a similar role for the past seven years with Gallagher Security Europe Ltd.
Prior to that Bailes was at Betafence, where he worked alongside Zaun head of sales Chris Plimley and, among other projects, originated some of the fencing that ultimately Zaun installed for the London 2012 Olympics.
Bailes represented Gallaghers at the British Security Industry Association, working on British Standards in electric fencing and other physical security systems. He also has experience in access control along with perimeter detection incorporating CCTV integration alongside high security perimeter fencing systems and standard fencing for sports and education.
“The Zaun Group’s broad range of products that spans right across my working background massively appeals to me. So I’m looking forward to working together with a team of people to really grow the Zaun businesses.
“That will entail bringing the physical systems together with EyeLynx’s electronics and the contracting option of Binns Fencing to provide turnkey solutions and supply to major clients and customers through long-term relationships.”
