Your UK & Ireland team
Providing the security for your business
I joined Almas in November 2016 excited by the innovative products, opportunities within the security sector and the ambitious growth plans of the group. Culturally we have seen a real positive shift in the last year. Outside of work I’m an avid armchair fan of most sports, sadly the Nottingham Forest glory days are a fading memory. Musically I’m stuck in the greatest era (IMO) of the late 80’s and early 90’s indie / Britpop scene. Married with two wonderful daughters, of that high school age!
Julia Maxton Close
I joined Almas in March 2009 because the biometrics market excited me. There’s been lots of change since then and we’ve worked hard in the last couple of years to make our company culture one in which people feel they are valued and enjoy coming to work. Our focus is on delivering quality security solutions and service to small and medium sized businesses across the UK and Ireland and we are constantly evolving to deliver those goals. Outside work, I’m involved in the social side of my local rugby club including organising charity ladies’ lunches. Musically I’m a bit of a rock chick, but conversely love ballet and opera (watching rather than performing).
Ireland Sales Director
I joined the company in June 2008. I was intrigued by the products that the company offered. I quickly learned and found my feet. I worked my way up in the sales team and now look after the day to day running and mentoring of the entire team. Outside of work, I am a massive music fan and regularly attend music gigs in Ireland and abroad. I’ve taken up playing the guitar and the ukulele! I’m mother to a wonderful daughter Molly, partner to a great guy called Adrian and we have a very lively 7 month old Cockapoo puppy called Buddy.
I joined the business in May 2009 as an installation engineer for the Midlands region. The product excited me and still does. I was promoted to UK Technical Manager in 2010 and took over the role in Ireland in 2014. I can honestly say I have seen many ups and downs within the business but I love my job. Outside of work I love spending time playing and watching cricket for my home town club Nantwich and also love spending time with my partner and our two dogs
UK Customer Service Director
I have been with the company since 2010 and enjoy my role as I get to meet and speak to so many people. Its great building relationships with businesses and seeing how our products help them to feel more secure. I am married with 2 children and 2 step children, although they are hardly children anymore, ages ranging from 33 to 25. Also 3 grandchildren! I adore cooking so most of my spare time is spent pottering around the kitchen trying new recipes and cooking styles. We’ve just got a German shepherd puppy called Darcy who is growing every day.
Head of Sales UK
I started with Almas in October 2017 to take on the exciting role of heading up the sales team. Joining was an easy decision due to the exciting product portfolio, constant innovation, great people & ambitious plans the business has in the UK & Europe. Outside of work I have a passion for most sports particularly cricket and football. I was half decent at both in my younger days but now being the wrong side of 40 playing is a challenge without getting injured! So I try to watch as much live sport as possible these days and have an understanding wife as holidays often revolve around England cricket tours; Barbados & Australia being highlights.
I joined Almas UK in 2010 as a project accountant and am now the Chief financial Officer. I run the account department and make sure that all the bills are paid on time! I enjoy being part of the Almas team. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my young family and am a proud father of two young boys. My favourite place to go on holiday is Dubai and I have been known to throw some cool dance moves at the Christmas party!
Ireland National Sales Manager
I’ve been with Almas for just over 8 months. What attracted me to the business was the family feel – everyone is valued and looked after! My job as Sales Manager means that I get to travel and meet lots of different people, which I really enjoy. Outside of work, I love to cook and you may be surprised to know that I actually enjoy ironing and cleaning! I played rugby for 30 years and am back in training having recently played a match for charity
UK Regional Sales Manager
I joined Almas Industries in October 2017 and have not looked back. Work is a very enjoyable part of my life! What attracted me to Almas was the innovative and varied products along with the investment in and growth of the team. They really have built a great culture and reward hard work, I know I can continue to build a great career here! I am the eldest of 3 children and love spending time with my family. The latest addition to the family is my nephew Max who I love to spoil. Not forgetting my Miniature Dachshund Winston who rules our home. I am very sociable and always make time for the girls and trips abroad.
I joined Almas in January 2017 and have the best team with me, I couldn’t have achieved half the things I have without them. They are the best work family out there. I try to help everyone as much as possible, as I try to think how they must feel in their situation. I grew up in Nantwich, Cheshire and in Perth, Australia. I live with two beautiful princess cats, they are my world! Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, relaxing, baking and video games. I love, cats, dinosaurs, Harry Potter and penguins.
UK Security Consultant
I have been with Almas Industries for just over 1 year and couldn’t recommend it enough. It’s great to be able to provide a service that really does make a difference to businesses, and that makes the world a little bit safer too. I love meeting new people and hearing different stories so being a Security Consultant is perfect for me. Outside of work I love all kinds of sports and play a huge amount of golf, and then when I have the time and the weather is right I enjoy snowboarding as well.
I really enjoying helping people and fixing technology, therefore working in the Technical Support part of Almas was a perfect job for me. We pride ourselves on offering great customer service and when things go wrong, we want to make sure that it’s solved, quickly. Outside of work I enjoy working on my car and car shows. I also love tattoos and dogs. I help my partner’s place of work, The Alice Charity, that supports families in the Stoke area. I’m a Father of 3 nightmares between 8 and 13 years old!
Customer Service Manager
I am proud to have been part of the Almas family since early 2018. It’s an ethical and value-led company and I really enjoy my role as Customer Service Manager. I speak to lots of clients every day and do my best to ensure that the service we give them is second-to-none. Having lost my dad to a heart related incident in 2003, our DOC defibrillator is the product I am most passionate about. I believe that every company should have a defibrillator to hand, we can’t have too many of them! I love to travel and New York City is a regular destination.
UK Security Consultant
I joined Almas Industries in January 2018 as innovative technology has always been an interest of mine. I enjoy tailoring our products to meet our customers’ needs, supporting them with the very best in security solutions with great customer service. My fiancé and I have recently welcomed our first child, Dexter, into the world. Our world has been turned upside down but for the better. As a family we enjoy our holidays with our favourite destinations being Disneyland Florida and Thailand.
I have been at Almas for just over a year. Fate bought me in contact with Julia and I started doing copywriting and design work on a part-time basis. Since then I have been involved with marketing, website design and exhibitions. I love that my job involves research, writing and design, and that no two days are ever the same! Outside of work I love baking, ballroom dancing, rock climbing and gardening. Rowan, my rescued English Setter, is my constant companion!
UK Security Consultant
I have been with Almas for just over 6 months. It is a great place to work because they value and encourage you to bring fresh ideas to the table. Everyone works together to ensure our customers have the best possible experience. I like that Almas has our own in-house R&D which means we stay one step ahead when it comes to producing best in class products. Outside of work I grow record breaking strains of chillies and make my own ultra-hot sauce! I also love to go mountain biking.
UK Security Consultant
I started working for Almas because I was attracted to the company values about putting the customers’ needs first. I enjoy my day-to-day role as it takes me all over London and I get to meet lots of interesting people. I love sport and can talk about it all day long! I actually trained as an actor, and did a lot of vocal work, but in the absence of an offer to be the next 007, Almas is a great place to work.
Ireland Security Consultant
Have been with Almas since May 2018. I’ve always enjoyed working on the road and meeting new customers every day. I like the fact that you can have call centre arranged meetings and also be able to self-generate your own possible customers. There is a great atmosphere within Dublin team from office, call centre, other sales people and support from tech. Away from work I like to travel and spend a lot of time fishing. I have fished in over 25 countries and represented Ireland at fly fishing and even presented some fishing shows on TV.

I was born in the Scottish Borders and have been living in Ireland since 1992. I am now in my 3rd year working for Almas Industries My main hobby outside of work is to DJ, I still love doing gigs after over 30 years and I also love going to see live bands whenever I can. I enjoy working for Almas as I get to meet a very diverse group of customers and every day is always different. You never stop learning in the job which is something I relish. There is always someone in the team who is there to help which is a real bonus.
Backoffice Manager UK & Ireland
I joined Almas as an Accounts assistant in March 2014. I’ve been very lucky to work for such an amazing company where you are rewarded and recognised for hard work and a good work ethic. After gaining experience in the Finance field I’ve been promoted to a Backoffice Manager. I'm now managing the contracts process for the UK & Ireland and I'm instrumental in overseeing the process that turns signed contracts into revenue. I’ve been known as the CRM Queen! Outside of work I love traveling very much. I have visited more than 30 counties so far. My mission is to travel to every single one, as there is so much beauty in the world to be seen!
