As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to shake the world, I would like to take a moment to re-affirm our commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our staff, our customers and our industry.
Foremost, I want to personally thank all of our incredible employees across the globe, who are working tirelessly to secure our customers’ sites, providing a hugely appreciated continuity of business. In these extraordinary times, when simply being outside is considered a risk, knowing that frontline staff are there in the field, day and night, is an enormous source of pride for us all. It serves as testament to the levels of resilience, courage and resolve within our ICTS family, and I’m surly not alone in extending my profound gratitude to all our staff who are tackling the present daily challenges head-on.
It goes without saying that the personal health and safety of our people remains our top priority. Our Leadership Teams around the world are closely monitoring advice issued from both the World Health Organisation and from the national Governments in each of our markets. We will continue to take all necessary actions to protect our employees and their families. We will continue working with all our customers to minimise the impact on their operations.
We are working at a time of unparalleled disruption and change, and yet the ICTS spirit has never been stronger! Rest assured, as we strive together, we are vigilant, prepared and strong. We face this struggle as one.
There is one dominating factor throughout life, of course, and this is time. “Time, the human dimension, which makes us everything we are” as Martin Amis wrote. Time is not only the greatest of healers, but regardless whatever happens next, time will take us forward.
We are doing everything that is possible to maintain ground that feels reassuringly familiar with all the comforts of routine. We will get there and we will be better and stronger.
I am certain that we will succeed, and greater times are waiting for us all just around the corner.
President & CEO
