Upper North Island Regional Manager
Sam Crowther is the Upper North Island Regional Manager for Advanced Security, and is responsible for the day to day operations of branches in Whanagrei and Auckland - from Drury to the top of the North Island.
Sam joined Advanced Security in January 2018 as Contracts Manager and was promoted to Regional Manager in November that same year.
While Sam’s background prior to joining Advanced Security was not directly in access control or intruder detection he did have previous experience in CCTV from previous roles. When Sam left school he went directly onto the tools in the fire alarm industry working in projects and service, then moving into a role installing low voltage systems such as Nurse Call, MATV and intercoms.
Over the many years, Sam has been focused on moving off the tools and into management which is where he found a new passion. He's forever learning, and has now had roles spanning project management and regional management.
Sam loves what he does because of his team. He believes that without a strong and entrusted team you cannot accomplish anything - all our business accomplishments are a direct result of this principle. He enjoys seeing staff step into new roles and overcoming challenges ultimately helping them succeed, which is a key driver for him.
Creating an environment where staff, as well as customers can lean in for support is important for Sam. He enjoys working with people and organisations to align their security needs with innovative solutions for the future.
