Security entrepreneur Sukhi Ghuman has been appointed to the board of directors of the Homeland Security Foundation of America (HSFA).
Sukhi, the owner and founder of Octavian Security in the UK and Octavian Security USA, gained the position after being recommended to the board for his extensive industry experience, achievements and knowledge.
The HSFA is a not-for-profit organisation that runs a number of public safety, energy, health and human services initiatives across the USA, with the ultimate aim of advancing homeland security and preserving civil liberties.
Sukhi was elected to the board after receiving a majority vote and following an extensive review process, which saw him address the board and take questions from individual members.
Commenting on his new role, Sukhi said:
"We've been operating in the USA from our base in Tulsa for a relatively short period of time. I therefore see it as a major achievement and privilege that I've been invited to join such a respected public body as the HSFA."
"I'm very much looking forward to taking my seat on the board and working with my fellow directors to continue establishing successful public partnerships and schemes to help protect communities and make them safer places to live."
Eric V Brown, President and Chairman at the HSFA added:
"The board was impressed by Sukhi's extensive security credentials and his passion for public safety."
"He brings with him an extensive network of business contacts, as well as fundraising experience and a proven ability to get new ventures up and running. All of these qualities are invaluable to us and will help the HSFA continue to offer the high quality service to the public that we're renowned for."
