eResponse Crowd Safety appoints expert

Safety and security specialist Robbie Naish has joined eResponse Crowd Safety.

Naish will work closely with eResponse’s crowd safety director Andy Hollinson to deliver a variety of crowd safety, dynamics and security-related training programmes to the company’s clients across the world.

Andy Hollinson, director of crowd safety, said: “Robbie has a world-class reputation in the industry so it is a big coup for us. For over 15 years Robbie has made a name for himself lecturing around the world on all aspects of crowd safety and counter terrorism procedures. His knowledge, respect and credentials are second to none.

“During his career he has helped countless event organisers around the world to develop crowd management plans and strategies. He is often the first name on the list for people who look for advice when it comes to high profile public events, so I am certain Robbie will help us maintain eResponse Crowd Safety’s rapid growth since we launched in 2014.”

Naish added: “Led by Andy, eResponse Crowd Safety has rapidly made a name for itself in the sector so it’s great to be joining the team.

“I am looking forward to making a contribution in the months and years ahead and ultimately ensuring that our clients have the best advice, training and preparation for their events.”

Naish has advised on crowd safety for events including V Festival, Isle of Wight Festival and the high-profile London New Year’s Eve fireworks display.
