About Horus North America

Horus North America was founded in 2021. Now with a growing team in place and unrivalled experience, the North American operation is growing in new sectors and markets.

Horus Security Consultancy Ltd was founded in Oxford in April 2006, on the principles of transparency and integrity, in order to bring tailored security services to organisations, institutions and projects in a spectrum of sectors operating around the world.

Our North American operation capitalises on our skills in providing critical security services for clients worldwide including global pharmaceutical & healthcare companies, leading research organisations and laboratories, major airports and rail systems, world-renowned universities, government agencies, and global construction and real estate development firms.

Our extended global reach not only means we can provide a ‘follow the sun’ offering across 24 times zones, but also means we can provide fluency in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish and Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese), and other languages on an on-call basis.

Jonathan Whiteley

Horus Security CEO and Founder

Jonathan is a former Lieutenant Colonel in Military Intelligence who founded Horus after a 23-year career running security, intelligence and counter-intelligence operations all over the world.

After graduating at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, Jonathan worked for the British Army in various complex, highly volatile countries such as Iraq, the Balkans, and Cyprus. He was seconded at various times to all three UK national intelligence agencies and was mentioned in Despatches for his work in Northern Ireland.


After leaving the army in 2006, Jonathan ran a successful project for Oxford University and went on from there to set up Horus, growing the business to more than 40 people over the next ten years. He now runs the company from its HQ in Oxford overseeing its expansion as it continues to provide a secure environment for organisations and their employees wherever they work, across the globe.

Born and bred in Herefordshire, Jonathan is a season ticket holder for the Worcester Warriors rugby union team (they need his support!), has three grown-up daughters, and a partner who is a Professor at Oxford University. He speaks reasonable German, less reasonable Russian, and has a degree in European History and German Language.

Ed Lueckenhoff

Horus North America Regional Vice President


Ed was an FBI agent for 25 years and was subsequently the Chief Security Officer of two major multinational companies. He leads the new expansion by Horus into North America, where he is actively taking on new clients with a range of different security needs, as well as providing services and advice for Horus worldwide.

Ed joined Horus in 2021 after working for 14 years as the Chief Security Officer of two Fortune 500 healthcare companies that operated around the world. In both cases, he was the first to be appointed to the post and was therefore responsible for establishing all aspects of their global security programmes.

He also served on the Risk Management Councils of these companies and was very involved in developing and operating the Background Screening Programs for both companies. At one of the companies, he helped develop and lead the company’s Crisis Response Program.

Prior to this, Ed held various leadership, management and investigative positions at FBI Headquarters and four FBI field divisions. Ed was also assigned as a lawyer in the FBI’s Legal Counsel Division and as an FBI Crisis Response Coordinator.

Ed is a graduate of the Missouri University of Science & Technology and the Vanderbilt University School of Law. He is a past member of the state bar associations of Tennessee and Missouri and is licensed as a private investigator by the State of Texas.
