Security Director of the Year is UNOPS’s Chief of Corporate Security
Thomas Gerstenecker, 43, is Chief of Corporate Security, Global Operations for the UNOPS, and currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark. He was chosen by the Canadian Security Advisory Board June 29. Gerstenecker, who is the first security professional hired by the UNOPS to serve in such a role, developed a Safety and Security Awareness campaign (SAFEUN) with endorsement at the executive level and in a global context within the organization. "I’m really thrilled,” said Gerstenecker when contacted by Canadian Security. “This is really an exciting time to be with the UN."

So who is ultimately responsible for making sure health and safety legislation is followed when several departments in an organization could be part of the equation?
