-- Bob Murrill brings three decades of policing to Wynyard Intelligence and Investigations
LONDON, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wynyard Group, the specialists in intelligence-led solutions for protecting companies and countries from threat, crime and corruption, has appointed former Metropolitan Police OCU Commander Covert Policing, Bob Murrill, as Director of Law Enforcement.
Based in London, Murrill brings highly valuable real-world experience garnered over a prestigious more-than thirty year law enforcement career.
Well known in UK policing and investigations communities, Murrill will apply his extensive experience and knowledge in managing and investigating serious crime, terrorism and corruption operations to Wynyard's intelligence and investigations business.
CEO Craig Richardson said Murrill is joining the team to help drive Wynyard's development of its law enforcement and intelligence offerings for global markets where Wynyard has offices.
"Bob's expertise will add a huge amount to shape our offerings targeted to the UK, US, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand markets. His experience, in serious crime, anti-terrorism and anti-corruption will further position us at the forefront of the global technology fight against crime, corruption and threat.
"Being able to attract someone with Bob's pedigree and calibre is a real coup for Wynyard. It will enhance our offerings and build on our credibility in the law enforcement market, and we are delighted Bob has chosen to work with us," said Richardson.
Murrill is the latest addition to Wynyard's international team that has recently attracted talent from its global competitors and the world's leading government intelligence and law enforcement agencies excited by the company's solutions and growth prospects.
Murrill said that his experience with an early version of Wynyard software -- Jade Investigator -- convinced him that intelligence tools are an essential part of modern policing, particularly when dealing with serious crime.
"Wynyards deliver game-changing innovations to help organisations facing problems growing in complexity, scale and impact. After three decades in policing, it was time to seek a new challenge. My new role will give me the chance to not only apply my policing experience in a practical way, but also to make a real difference to crime outcomes in many markets."
In addition to an impressive career with the Metropolitan Police, most recently in Scotland Yard, Murrill is in the final year of a Masters degree in Investigative Forensic Psychology.
