After 83 years, Securex founder still goes to work everyday!

Kishorilal Sahni−Securex Group Founder and Chairman

Mr. Kishorilal Sahni−Securex Group Founder and Chairman

Mr. Kishorilal Sahni established Securex Agencies (K) LTD in 1970 after retiring from the police force, having served as a Superintendent.

He was driven by passion for security, and saw the need to provide premium security and private investigation services to the public.

He founded the company with only two employees.  The company has since grown in leaps and bounds, under the stewardship of Mr. Kishorilal.  For instance, in 1996 he oversaw the firm’s expansion to the Securex place in Parklands, and recently to the 9 Riverside Building on Riverside drive.

Under his guidance, Securex has established branches in Nairobi’s Industrial Area and Mombasa, as well as ventured in Uganda and Tanzania.

Currently aged 83, Mr. Kishorilal Sahni is still motivated by his passion for security and business. His commitment to the cause has inspired many to have long, fruitful careers at Securex, and his contribution to the field of private security has cemented his place as an iconic figure in Kenya’s national security set-up.
