Led by Stu Jackson as Managing Director who will take up his post from 1st September 2021, the Canberra based EWS (Asia Pacific) team will be supporting whole of government, defence, intelligence and security clients in Australia, New Zealand and across Asia Pacific, bringing specialist skills to help build regional capability.

EWS is a global innovation consultancy operating in the multi-domain arena, providing clients with practical solutions to solve complex and overwhelming problems. EWS have recently been recognised by the UK Department for International Trade as a key provider of event security and support.

Commenting on the expansion, Jon Gower, EWS’ CEO said: “Our specialist teams have been providing vendor-neutral consultancy, intelligence and training support to governments, defence and security teams dealing with global threats, counter terrorism and near-peer conflict since 2009.

“Incorporating in Australia with EWS (AP) is a natural step forward for us, providing the Group with a strong foundation to develop a team of specialists, centred on Australia, with reach across the whole Asia Pacific region.”

On hearing the news of the launch, Jono Beesley, DSM Brigadier (Retired) said: “As the former Commander of the ADF Joint Counter Improvised Threat Task Force where EWS’ products provided critical Open Source Threat Intelligence, I saw first-hand the game changing operational benefits EWS delivered to operational planning and threat mitigation. The establishment of EWS (AP) is a significant addition to our sovereign intelligence capability.”

Jon Gower said: “We think it’s vital for the future of citizens and communities across Asia Pacific that we help to build a sovereign capability that is proactive rather than reactive, using all available intelligence to guide decision making and create an adaptive approach for tomorrow’s threats, not yesterday’s.

“The EWS Group is very proud as we launch into Australia and look forward to building collaborative and mutually beneficial relationships within the defence, intelligence and security communities.”

Despite a global pandemic, EWS Ltd. has experienced phenomenal growth and demand from governments, defence, national and domestic security, justice and corporate entities across the globe, which has led it to this natural decision to launch EWS (AP) in Australia to better service the specific needs of the Asia Pacific region.
