Managing Director

Craig is hands on. His career in security began as a wireman years back and worked his way up the ranks, learning and perfecting every single facet of the business in detail. For down time, he can be found tinkering on his numerous guitars from acoustic to electric or sipping on a glass of good red wine. From time to time, he manages to take some time off with his family or get lost in his fantasy books. His better half, Kathy, is the creative force behind popular local business Wonky Wines, and Secure Rite’s secret weapon.

Chris has been involved in the industry for over 40 years now. Starting out as a Security Consultant for De Beers in Kimberley, Chris co-founded the very first Monitoring and Armed Response Company in that area. On relocating to the Western Cape, he then started Secure Rite in 1994. Having now handed over the operation to Craig, we still make sure to keep him very involved – that is, when we are able to entice him off his electric bicycle. We are just not quite willing to let go of his expertise and experience yet!

Armed Response Manager

A well known figure in local security circles, Herman and his highly trained team of Armed Response Officers, ensures that our response service is swift and no-nonsense. That said, we take pride in the warmth and genuine friendliness of our officers under Herman’s leadership. When not out and about in one of our branded Secure Rite Security vehicles (please hoot!), Herman can be found manning braai tongs, ensuring that our officers have a chance to connect and enjoy each others’ company as a tightly knit team.

24hr Operations Centre Manager

Part of the Secure Rite Security family since 2005, Selma ensures that our Operations Centre is efficiently manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  When not keeping a watchful eye on her team of highly trained controllers, Selma applies the same kindness, efficiency and calm which she brings to her work role, to her role as a single mum of three lovely teenaged girls.  In her spare time she enjoys music and having fun with friends.

Assets and Finance Manager

If it’s an account query you have, then Peter’s team is most certainly the one to talk to. Always helpful and warm, Pete has been with the company long enough to know everything about everything. For a bean counter, he certainly does not fit the mould: when not managing Secure Rite Security’s financial affairs, Pete is likely to be found on the West Coast, fishing and diving. Or hunting. Or studying rocks. And if you need to know anything about our local wines, he is a great source of information on that subject also.
