Company History[edit | edit source]
In the 1990's, decorated officer Roger St John-Ffolkes left the British Army and became a strategic consultant for a UK-based Private Military Contractor (PMC). What he learned there encouraged him to strike out on his own. Calling in favors from contracts gleaned from years in the Army, St John-Ffolkes set up Belltower UK, the precursor to The Belltower Group PLC. His personal ethos informed everything about the company's operations and corporate policy, and Belltower became known for its refusal to engage in any contracts of an "ethically challenged" nature.
At first, Belltower operated in a minor conflict hotspots, handling low-level corporate security, kidnap and retrieval and close protection details. By the early 2000's, the company had expanded its operations and grown into Belltower Associates. An umbrella entity, the Belltower Group now included sub-divisions such as Belltower Maritime Security, Belltower Alpha, HackWall Data Protection Services, and Skye Secure Aviation.
