Clive Talbot

Clive was the founding Director of the company, having gained over a decade of electronic security sales experience with Sensormatic in the commercial and industrial sectors. Heading up his own sales team Clive quickly developed a passion for major CCTV and Access Control projects, and believed in working closely with clients to maximise the return from their investment. Following the ADT Tyco aquisition of Sensormatic, Clive decided the time was right to move on and to continue his desire for delivering quality products with a quality service, but through his own business, hence Vindex Systems was born. The transition and development continues today as Clive focusses on how best to evolve the company to ensure we remain the best support company we can possibly be.
