Chris Rugg, Director of Operations in our London Security Solutions Business unit, joined us for the latest edition of our 60-second interview series where he talks about his work, inspiration, and his life mantra:
How would you describe your role at Bidvest Noonan?
I am the Director of Operations for our London Security Business at Bidvest Noonan. I support and lead my team in delivering the best possible service to our customers. I work closely with clients and management to ensure Bidvest Noonan is the partner of choice in the market.
What has been your best day at Bidvest Noonan?
I always cherish the days when I can gather my entire team together, but the most remarkable days are when we receive news of winning or retaining contracts. Fortunately, we have experienced numerous successes in this regard recently. Is there anything more gratifying than that? So far, I haven’t had a single bad day here!
What is the most valuable advice you’ve ever received?
Trust yourself, make a decision, and take action. The rest will fall into place!
How do you stay motivated?
When you appreciate your work, the culture of the people you work with, and the company you work for, it’s easy to stay motivated.
Who or what has been your greatest source of inspiration?
When I first entered the private security industry after leaving the armed forces, I found inspiration in the hard work of some of my close colleagues at the time, Brian Kingham and Ken Allison. Their dedication greatly influenced my career and ensured a positive transition into the industry.
If you had a personal motto, what would it be?
My life mantra is “Carpe diem!”—seize the day! Life is not a rehearsal.
