About Us

Our ethos

Our goal is to help governments, businesses and individuals protect their staff and assets in an uncertain world. Our clients’ interests always come first and we act at all times with integrity, courage, professionalism and absolute reliability.

Our history

Our team has worked together for many years providing training and security risk management services to global organisations. Recognising the need for a more bespoke, flexible service than that offered by larger private security contractors, Hugh Martin set up Hawki in 2009. Since then we have trained over 6000 delegates in the UK, Jordan, Yemen, Afghanistan, and other countries as well as providing other security services to companies and individuals.

Our People

Hawki’s management team combines many years of military and commercial experience. All our staff are fully qualified.
