Mark Lloyd, ANZ Group Managing Director, Optic Security, has announced the appointment of Glenn Shaw as South Australia State Manager.

Shaw joins Optic, holding senior management positions in the utilities, electrical, and facilities management sectors. Originating from Canada, his 17 years in South Australia have been marked by rapid promotion and strong people and business outcomes.

"It's fantastic to have Glenn joining us in the South Australia State Manager role," Lloyd says.

"Glenn brings passion, commitment, and strong operational and financial management capabilities to this key role.

"Given the extremely competitive nature of today's labour market, I'm particularly delighted that we've attracted a senior manager of Glenn's calibre to the Group.

"In addition to possessing a track record as a successful operational manager, he also has an impressive resume as an elite sports coach, and knows what it takes to lead an aspirational team."

Lloyd also announced that Warren Hillier will be moving into the role of Regional Account Manager (Defence). Warren has served as Branch Manager in Optic's South Australian business unit since 2020 and, before that, as Operations Manager at Security & Technology Solutions (prior to its merger with Optic) since 2010.

In his new specialist role, Warren will manage long-term relationships with Defence clients, acting as the point of contact between key stakeholders and Optic Security Group's operational and administrative teams to ensure the timely and successful delivery of solutions. The role will also be responsible for planning and overseeing Defence projects within the region.

"[South Australia is] the 'Defence State', and it makes sense for Optic to be investing in ensuring that we're delivering the best, most timely outcomes for our Defence clients via this new role," Lloyd says.

"Warren has over three decades of experience in security in South Australia, and he has been involved in numerous Defence, Government, and Critical Infrastructure projects. He is a great asset for the Group, and I am excited that he will be focusing his experience, skills, and energies on our Defence sector clients."
