BSIA Announces The Appointment Of A New Chief Executive

The Chairman of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), Stuart Lowden, has today announced the appointment of James Kelly as the new Chief Executive of the BSIA. James brings a wealth of experience in lobbying, legal advice and commercial service delivery. With a very successful track record in professional representation he has performed leadership roles on behalf of the legal profession, engineering and marketing services industries.

Until recently James was Chief Operating Officer of the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), a role which was both high profile and hugely challenging. He held this position for nine years, during which time he contributed significantly to the growth and influence of the DMA.

James Kelly says: “I am delighted to be appointed Chief Executive of the BSIA and look forward to representing what is a hugely important industry over the coming years. Key stakeholders, including government, recognise that the private security industry is an essential partner in providing a safe environment for UK business and society. I want to capitalise on that and shall be working hard to help members derive a real competitive and reputational advantage from their membership of the BSIA.”

Stuart Lowden comments: “The appointment follows an extensive recruitment process which included a field of extremely able candidates. The panel concluded that James Kelly has the ideal balance of skill sets and experience to build on the achievements of the Association, and we look forward to working with him in the coming years.”

James will join the BSIA on Monday 11th January 2010.
