OUR TEAM

 

GREG MUIR

FOUNDER & DIRECTOR

Greg formed Beaware Solutions in 2006 after more than 32 years operational policing experience in the Sydney Metropolitan Area. During that time he was involved in high level planning for major events, involving complex risk assessments for public safety. He was Project Manager for a major re-structure of Command roles and responsibilities and was also involved in evacuation strategies during major bushfires in the Sydney Region. He also produced a Senate Inquiry Report for the Macquarie Fields riots.

He has developed practical solutions in the fields of emergency management, safety and security for numerous clients. His knowledge and experience has now been passed on to the team. The team itself, comprised mainly of former Police, has had considerable training and experience in all risk areas because of the nature of their former occupations.
