BGN Risk appoints Simon Fordham OBE

BGN Risk appoints Maritime Security expert Simon Fordham OBE for Crisis Negotiation.

Simon Fordham OBE has joined BGN Risk, a leading London based security risk consultancy, to lead the businesses expanding crisis management offering.

Previously a highly decorated Colonel in the British Special Forces, Fordham is now a globally acclaimed crisis management practitioner renowned for resolving major commercial kidnappings, maritime hijackings, extortion and other serious business risks.

Simon joins Partner, Liam Morrissey, in the London headquarters of BGN Risk to manage their crisis response services and will augment the extensive project management capabilities of the team. This expansion is a clear recognition of the increasing impacts that security risks are having on commercial clients operating trans-nationally and the growing need for reliable and effective professional services in this field.

Ric Traynor, Chairman of parent company, Begbies Traynor Group, said “we are very pleased to have Simon join the BGN Risk team. His outstanding track record in resolving major business crises will enhance our already strong commercially oriented security risk services and will add great value to major clients, particularly in the specialist insurance and international shipping arenas.”

BGN Risk identifies, reduces and manages client security risks to protect their assets, employees, customers and goodwill. Based in London, with satellite offices throughout Africa, BGN Risk serves an international client base.

BGN Risk is a division of BTG Intelligence Limited and part of AIM Listed Begbies Traynor Group plc.
