News & Events-New Business Manager to provide resilience support to defence companies

Engineering consultancy Frazer-Nash has announced the appointment of Resilience Business Manager, Chris Cullis to the company.

Chris will be working closely with Frazer-Nash's teams in the defence markets to develop the company's resilience offering - understanding the challenges that its clients face and recommending immediate actions to ensure they are as resilient as possible, whatever their industry sector.

"Organisations today face a variety of different threats - some old and some new," said Chris. "Whether it is the challenge of managing a complex supply chain for a major defence project or effectively protecting against cybercrime, resilience should be a topic that's being discussed in every boardroom."

Chris joins Frazer-Nash after 28 years' service in the Royal Marines in the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, including two years as a military advisor for Dstl. He has extensive experience in ensuring resilience for different bodies and organisations, having directed and run the multinational operating base at Camp Bastion, Afghanistan during its start-up, ensuring security and completing crisis and continuity planning. He also planned and coordinated the delivery of resilience to permit national elections on behalf of the United Nations.

Commenting on the appointment, Bill Hodson, Director at Frazer-Nash said: "Organisations with robust resilience strategies will be in a position to foresee threats more effectively than those without.

"Chris's background and previous experience bring some interesting perspectives to this emerging area and we are confident that he will be able to add real value to delivering solutions to meet our clients' needs."
