Fit for the Future
Managing Director, Pravesh Kara: “Perspective Risk has been in business for six years and has seen steady growth throughout this period. We believe that the time is now right to strengthen the direction and governance of the business through the appointment of a Non Executive Director. We examined a number of options, but ultimately were unanimous in our choice of Oscar as the best possible fit for our business.
“We have complete trust in his judgement, great respect for his experience and industry insight and we have first hand experience of his ability to find solutions before most people recognise that there is a problem to be solved. We are delighted that he has accepted our invitation to join us for the next stage of our journey and look forward to a long and productive relationship.”
Oscar O’Connor: “For four years at Finmeccanica, Prav and Zia were at the core of a highly accomplished and successful security testing team I was privileged to manage. It is with a mixture of excitement and humility I take up this role with the intention of helping them continue to build on a very successful core business.
“Demand for the services Perspective Risk offers is growing and the industry as a whole has a major challenge on its hands to attract and retain talented individuals across a range of skills to meet client needs. I believe that companies like Perspective Risk are the future of our industry and look forward to contributing to the future growth of the business.”
