Corps Security director honoured by ASC for services to professionalism within the security industry

Mike Bluestone

Corps Security’s director of security consulting, Mike Bluestone, has been presented with a unique award by the Board of the Association of Security Consultants (ASC) in recognition of his services to the advancement of professionalism within the industry.

Lord McKenzie presented the award at this year’s ASC annual luncheon held at the Royal Air Force Club, Piccadilly, London, on 23rd June. The event marked a double celebration for Bluestone who was also announced as runner up for the Imbert Prize 2011 for his significant contribution to the industry over the last year.

Speaking at the event, Bluestone commented, ‘I am stunned to be singled out for praise by my peers in this way – I feel incredibly honoured. To receive an award for services to the advancement of professionalism in the industry along with the runner up award for the Imbert Prize itself means that today is one of the most memorable and exciting of my career.’

The special award came as a complete surprise to Bluestone and the rest of the industry leaders gathered at the event, as it is the first time such an honour has been given.

Roy Sutherland, Chairman of the ASC, explained, ‘Mike is a true ambassador for the industry and always strives to improve standards. Of particular note is his vast input into the creation of the Chartered Security Professional designation, which will go a long way in enhancing the character and standing of the security industry. In light of this the ASC voted unanimously to recognise Mike’s achievements and continuing efforts in this area by awarding him this special accolade.’

The Imbert Prize is a celebrated annual award, which is named after ASC patron Lord Imbert of New Romney CVO QPM and former commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. It aims to encourage the development of ideas for the advancement of risk and security management in the UK and is awarded in three categories. Having been nominated by The British Security Industry Association (BSIA), Bluestone faced stiff competition in the notable contribution to the security industry category and was named as runner up.

Bluestone concluded, ‘The Imbert Prize is a distinguished accolade and the calibre of the nominees was extremely high this year, which highlights the fantastic work that is going on in all sections of the industry. I would like to thank my colleagues at Corps Security for their support and encouragement leading up to the finals.’
