Meet The People
Wayne Blance               Director

I am the owner and Managing Director of Black Watch Tactical Ltd. With 28 years in the Security  industry and in risk management, I have gained a wealth of experience consulting for the corporate sector with major clients like Virgin Group, Dunlop Heywood, King Sturge, GVA Grimley, Knight Frank, AMC Cinemas, Manchester Arndale, Grosvenor Casino, Salford University,  Major Events and local authorities to name but a few.
I have implemented the structure and documented the movement of vehicles for one of the largest distribution centres built in the North West with an annual turnover of £2.4 billion. My strengths are the ability to listen to people and understand what they require, the ability to negotiate, retain contracts, deal with any situation and respond to the client within hours of an Incident. As mentioned, the fact that there has never been an insurance claim made against this company speaks volumes in this industry.

I have designed an all inclusive package for the Commercial  Sector covering all major services, fixing your budget for the next five years.
