The Private Security Industry lost a valuable constituent of the fraternity with the untimely passing away of Col. Sameer Anukul (Retired), CPP, on 6 May, 2021. Anukul was a humble, down to earth leader, friend, mentor, role model, and guide, and an exceptionally talented security professional.
After having served for 20 years in the Indian Army, Sameer made a very successful transition to the corporate world in May 2008 working for Honeywell as its South Asia Security Head, excelling and quickly adapting and rising in the industry. He was now working as ER&S Leader – Asia Pacific Region for Corteva Agrisciences, a major American agricultural chemical and seed company that was the agricultural unit of DowDuPont prior to being spun off as an independent public company. He was widely recognised in the security and risk industry for his industrious nature, clear thinking, continuous quest for knowledge/education, and strategic vision.
Col. Sameer Anukul, CPP was an active ASIS volunteer chapter member for more than 7 years and was instrumental in revolutionising New Delhi Chapter activities as Chapter Treasurer and as part of the Chapter Executive Committee in 2017 and 2018. He played a very active role in planning and hosting the ASIS International CSO Meet in 2018 in New Delhi. He was a great mentor always guiding and nurturing the next generation. He used to participate actively in ASIS chapter activities, seminars and forums.
The ASIS India Chapter community extended their sincere condolences to the family on this irreparable loss
