Our senior leadership team

Bryn Taylor Director
Bryn Taylor: Director

Bryn co-founded Cobac in 2016 with a strong belief that with a rounded, diligent and open approach, security guarding could be provided in a much more impactful way.

After a period of working in finance and administration for a number of retailers, Bryn started his career within security in 2005 and has operated across all business functions, ending with 5 years as the COO of a Top 30 security provider. Bryn focuses on ensuring that Cobac is operated in an sustainable, efficient and scalable way across all areas of the business to ultimately deliver the best service.

" We genuinely believed that if security guarding companies stopped rationalising their poor service with excuses and focussed on a rounded, intelligent, selective and fair approach to business, a great company could be created and sustained, of which staff, clients and suppliers are proud to be involved with and part of. This is why we founded Cobac! "

Diane Johnson Managing Director
Diane Johnson: Managing Director

Diane has been in the security industry for over 30 years and continues to approach it with a passion that is unrivalled. She has worked in the retail security sector with CWS, Boots and Comet for the first 20 years in various national loss prevention roles and latterly in the manned guarding industry where as Managing Director she was key in the growth of Cardinal Security from 2004 until she took a sabbatical in 2015.

In her position now as Managing Director of Cobac she is able to use her passion, experience and care to provide an excellent service to our clients, staff & suppliers in these ever evolving times.

"The founding of COBAC was a dream come true for me it was the next step in a long history in the industry and one I enjoy on a daily basis. To be able to work with great clients with the same ethos of care, professionalism, trust and honesty is a breath of fresh air in an ever challenging environment."

Phil Wright Director
Phil Wright: Director

Phil started his career in security working as a retail security officer whilst studying at University. Over the next 10 years, he worked his way up through various positions, from an Area Manager to the Head of Operations, and onto a final position of Finance and Systems Director before joining Diane and Bryn in July 2017 at Cobac Security.

"I joined Cobac to do things differently, and to move away from the industry shift. We prioritise our provision on quality over quantity, supplementing great people with the latest technologies to optimise their roles."
