IFSEC and FIREX expand leadership team

May 2019 Conferences & Events, News

As a result of considerable growth within Informa’s Security and Fire portfolios, the IFSEC and FIREX senior leadership team has undergone expansion.

Simon Young joins IFSEC International & FIREX International as exhibition director. Young will be responsible for driving further growth for IFSEC and FIREX exhibitors in the flagship London events and pivot these exhibitions into the next stages of success.

Young has long-standing expertise in exhibitions, with 12 years’ experience across both the industrial and travel divisions of Reed and Informa. Most recently, Young has been working in Cairo as group exhibition director, specialising in power, fire and security, food manufacturing, pharma and automotive, and will take his proficiency in high-growth strategies with him into his role on IFSEC and FIREX.

Gerry Dunphy has been promoted into a newly created role as strategy director across security and fire. Drawing on a highly established relationship with these markets and a vision for growth in the security and fire division, Dunphy will create opportunities to help security and fire manufacturers and distributors reach new geographical markets and explore ways to connect security and fire buyer and sellers beyond events.

With the launch this year of IFSEC & FIREX Egypt, as well as an existing portfolio covering India, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia and South Korea, plus the co-location of the UK security industry’s two most prestigious events, IFSEC and Counter Terror Expo, Dunphy’s role is borne of huge need for this high growth portfolio.
