Thinus Theron entered the security industry in 2004 when he joined SecuriplanUK after finishing his Marketing Management studies. Upon returning to South Africa, he joined Thorburn Security Solutions as a Contract Manager in 2007, a position he held up until 2011 when he was approached to join the newly established Gardier Security Services as an Area Manager. The challenges of having to operate in an environment where you are “not following the old”, but “establishing the new” provided Thinus with invaluable experience within the security industry, and 3 years later, in 2014, he was promoted to the position of Operations Manager, responsible for Western Cape operations. In 2019 after a successful 5 years as Operations Manager, he moved into the position of Marketing Manager. Thinus is a dedicated and methodical manager and subscribes to principles of Planning & Leading.
