New Chairman for IPSA

The International Professional Security Association (IPSA) held its 2015 Annual General Meeting this week at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden, London. The occasion marked the completion of Mike White’s four years as Chairman of the Association and included the election of the Association’s International Council, who appointed Mr Stuart Naisbett as the new Chairman.

Stuart Naisbett has been an active member of the Association since the early 1980’s, originally in the London and South East Region and then on the International Council, whilst working as a security controller at Centuryan Security, before his career progressed, including working as General Manager for Elizabethan Security and later as Operations Director at Mison Security. Since 2002 he has worked as an independent security consultant.

Other appointments are Jane Farrell, Centre of Excellence Development Manager at Sodexo Ltd, who has been appointed Deputy Chairman and Ian Pugh, Head of Security at Bilfinger Europa Facility Management Ltd, who has taken Stuart’s previous role as Honorary Treasurer. Mike White, the previous Chairman, and Una Riley, the previous Deputy Chairman, both remain on the Management Board along with Simon Pears.

The AGM was combined with a networking luncheon followed by industry talks from both Steve Martin of the Fire and Security Association and Elizabeth France, Chairman of the Security Industry Authority, who used the opportunity to introduce the new Chief Executive of the SIA, Alan Clamp, who was attending the event as his first opportunity to meet the security industry on only his fourth day at the SIA. Following the talks, Alan Clamp and Elizabeth France both took questions from the audience, giving IPSA members an insight into their thoughts for the future direction of the SIA.

The International Professional Security Association (IPSA) is the UK’s longest established trade body for the security industry and represents both companies and individuals through membership schemes, reaching over 30,000 members and their employees worldwide. We regularly consult with our membership and represent their views on relevant industry committees, at standards bodies, etc. The Association is governed by a board of elected members, with wide ranging experience in the security industry.
