Securitas North America announces new leadership team

Securitas Services North America announced on Wednesday changes to its leadership team.

The Parsippany-based security company said Greg Anderson, previously president of Securitas USA’s Pacific Region, has been named CEO and president of the company’s North American Guarding operations. Jose Castejon, formerly president of Securitas USA’s South Region, has assumed the role of chief operating officer of North America Guarding.

“It is an honor to lead Securitas North America and our 120,000 employees into the future,” Anderson said. “Jose and I look forward to working with our senior team in accelerating our current momentum and executing on several transformational priorities.”

The leadership change will also be modifying the structure of the company, it said. Securitas’ North America Division will now be comprised of four business units: North America Guarding, North America Electronic Security, Securitas Critical Infrastructure and Pinkerton.

Santiago Galaz, the company’s former CEO, has been named executive chairman and of North America. Bill Barthelemy, the previous chief operating officer, has taken on a senior advisory role.

“Santiago and Bill led the transformation of Securitas North America into a fully diversified protective services company, building a portfolio of industry-best business units and practices. Their legacies are extensive and extraordinary,” Anderson said.
