Churchill Security is delighted to welcome Leighton Barratt to our sales team as Director of Corporate Accounts


Churchill Security is delighted to welcome Leighton Barratt to our sales team as Director of Corporate Accounts.

Leighton has a strong background in the security industry, having worked as a security officer himself before moving into the role of supervisor and then business development manager. With a wealth of sales and management experience, we’re sure that Leighton will be a valuable addition to the Churchill team. To give Leighton a proper Churchill welcome, we decided to have a chat to see how he’s settling in.


How are you settling in at Churchill?

L: It’s honestly been such a brilliant experience. The team is very outgoing and positive about their work and the company. They took the time to train me on the Churchill style, so I was able to hit the ground running. I’ve only been working here a few weeks, but I can tell this is a positive environment and a good fit for me. It really does feel like a family already”


What’s your favourite thing about working for Churchill so far?

L: My favourite thing so far has been meeting the team and getting to know everyone. It’s great learning how the business operates and how everyone’s role fits in with the wider company. You can really see how vital each person is to the daily running of the business. You can also notice the team’s dedication to the Churchill virtues- the whole team truly lives and breathes the company’s virtues of humility, passion, and people first.


What are your day-to-day duties at Churchill?

L: My role involves seeking out new business and generating leads for the company, matching up the right security solution for businesses across the south of England. Providing the best customer experience is also a big part of my job, and definitely one of my favourite parts of the role.


What is the most surprising thing about working at Churchill?

L: What surprises me most about Churchill is how quickly we can provide our services. One of our clients required a security officer within the hour and we were able to arrange cover quickly and efficiently to meet this tight turnaround time. Churchill operates like a well-oiled machine and the speed of service is deeply impressive. Thanks to this, we were able to retain the customer and continue providing our services.


How does Churchill stand out compared to other companies?

L: Besides the company’s strong virtues, Churchill has an impressive marketing strategy that really helps get the company name out there and attracts quality leads for the sales team. It’s another great example of how every team makes a valuable contribution to the company and how everything fits together smoothly here at Churchill.
