Hawki was set up by Hugh Matin and Nicholas Fairfax in 2009 after Hugh had worked for several years in the British Army and UK Special Forces, followed by 4 years as MD of a large private security company. They recognised the complexity of modern day commercial life and the need for truly bespoke, flexible services that weren't being offered by larger private security companies.
Since then, Hawki have operated in all corners of the globe, working for a variety of clients including the UN, the EU police missions, UK FCO, many corporations and high net worth clients. We have also trained over 6000 delegates in the UK, Jordan, Georgia, Yemen, Ethiopia, Afghanistan and Indonesia, to name but a few.
The team has worked together for many years, always acting with integrity, courage, professionalism and absolute reliability. They combine many years of military, intelligence and commercial experience.
