About us
Starting his career as an industrial electrical  apprentice, David installed his first security  system more than 30 years ago. His  experience and knowledge was soon  extended to include CCTV and Access Control systems, as well as intruder alarms. Within  two years of completing his apprenticeship  David joined the installation division of the  largest electronic security company in the UK,  moving to a service role and then into sales.  After a successful period in sales  management, David moved on to work as field  sales for Norbain Distribution before joining  SANYO as the UK Manager for the CCTV  division.  After 10 years David progressed his  career with SAMSUNG Techwin and over a  period of four years built the business in the  UK and developed the European channel,  which resulted in a dramatic increase in the  company’s sales. Returning to SANYO, David  combined together the company’s offices in  Barcelona, London, Munich and Paris into one operation for the CCTV Division, whilst  establishing SANYO as Europe’s number one  provider of Full HD cameras. As co-founder and joint Managing Director of  European Security Partners Ltd., David will be  ensuring that customers receive the highest  levels of support whilst striving to ensure  expectations are not just met, but exceeded in  relation to products and services.
Stefan has worked within the CCTV industry since 1999. Initially working for Convison Technologies, a German company developing and selling IP-video servers for the security markets, he moved in 2002 to SANYO to establish a sales network for the DACH area. During the following five years he became responsible for the sales channels across continental Europe. In 2007 Stefan joined Milestone Systems to sell Video Management Software Systems for the German speaking countries. In 2009 and 2010 he worked for Avigilon Corporation as Sales Director for the DACH region where he sold Multi Megapixel systems. With a change in professional focus, Stefan was welcomed back to SANYO as Technical Director for the continental European countries. In addition to his responsibilities for technical support and customer training, Stefan was closely involved with support for SANYO innovative Full HD camera range. Stefan is a co-founder and Managing Director of Eu-SP.  After more than 13 years of working in the European CCTV industry he is determined to be part of a team that delivers high quality products and services, and puts customers into the centre of all its activities.
Stephen began his career in electronics as a radio communications apprentice, moving into Electronic Security at the age of 17. He started his career in video technology in the workshop, repairing and modifying a wide variety of CCTV equipment, then working through a traditional apprenticeship in Installation and Service engineering, whilst studying for his electronics engineering certificates. This foundation was invaluable for future positions as Group Senior Engineer for Dedicated Micros worldwide, and Technical Director of Goodson Wainwright Ltd, providing support services for Samsung Techwin amongst many others. Stephen has also worked in the IT sector in a variety of disciplines from hardware and networking to wireless temperature monitoring and analysis systems in mission critical areas. This experience proved invaluable upon his return to the Electronic Security sector to work with High Definition network based systems for SANYO UK & Europe, where he provided internal and Customer support for the Full HD range of IP cameras, co-developing and writing the comprehensive SANYO HD training program. Stephen is a firm believer in providing excellent Customer service and support at all levels combined with fast response.
Graduating University in Japan as mechanical engineer, Hiroshi began his career in the R&D division of NHK Spring Japan to develop computer peripheral equipment. Later moving to the UK, he joined SANYO and began his tremendously successful tenure as product manager, which continued for 17 years. During this time, Hiroshi was responsible for the management of various product lines and technologies, including audio systems, telephone, fax, LCD monitors and batteries. He has worked with analogue and digital CCTV products since 1998, supporting both commercial and technical sides of the business, including stock management, sales & purchase forecasting to pre & post sales technical support. This work was key to the success of SANYO HD cameras in the market place where good pre & post-sales support was essential to win and maintain large projects. Likewise, Hiroshi will be key in ensuring solid Customer Service at Eu-SP and forms a vital part of the team taking European Security Partners Ltd. forward into 2013 and beyond.
