A new direction for former servicemen

A new direction for former servicemen

Two former servicemen have put their military experience to good use and teamed up to launch their own risk management consultancy.

Jason and David, who have 45 years combined military and specialised governmental experience, have swapped their battle fatigues for suits after spotting a niche in the market for specialised risk management.

Athena Risk, established earlier this year in Newcastle, provides tailored risk awareness and overseas risk management solutions.

Jason said: “Our extensive military background is a big aspect of what we’re about at Athena Risk.  Having that first-hand experience of serving in hostile and challenging environments means we can apply a practical perspective risk management solutions to a range of businesses across multiple markets.”

The company are currently based in a Regus office on Newcastle’s Cloth Market and are going from strength-to-strength.

“We use our Regus office in Newcastle as our hub from which we plan and deliver Emirates Airline sponsored travel risk awareness workshops to businesses across the North East,” Jason said.

“We already have additional workshops pencilled in for other parts of the UK and our growth plans also include working in the USA and beyond.

“We’re delighted we made the move to launch our own business.”
