Executive recruitment firm Sherrington Associates has facilitated the hiring of a new general manager on behalf of global security and risk management consultancy MIRIS International.
John McKiernan joins MIRIS this month and will lead the firm’s global operations and logistics from its head office in Liverpool.
Mr McKiernan brings with him a wealth of relevant experience from a previous career in the military and in commercial operational management roles with organisations including Capita and Saab.
MIRIS was founded by managing director Mike Williams in 2011 to provide risk management services to the maritime industry, as well as providing a range of security services to non-maritime clients in industries such as aviation and leisure.
Managing director Mike Williams said: “John’s appointment further strengthens the MIRIS team and its operational capabilities and we’re very pleased with Sherrington Associate’s involvement in the recruitment process”.
Sherrington managing director Rob McKay added: “We are delighted to have supported such an exciting company as MIRIS and look forward to seeing the business grow with John in the team.”
