Speaking at the Security Industry Authority Annual Conference, Chairman Baroness Ruth Henig today announced the appointment of Bill Butler as Chief Executive. It is expected that he will take over from SIA Acting Chief Executive Andy Drane later in the summer. Bill is currently Director of Corporate Services at the Gambling Commission where he has been part of the team that has led the establishment of this successful new regulator. He was previously Finance Director at the Healthcare Commission and held a number of senior roles at the Audit Commission. He is a member of the Chartered institute of Public Finance.

Baroness Henig said: “I am delighted to welcome Bill Butler as the new Chief Executive of the SIA. The Board and I look forward to working with Bill, and are confident that he will lead the SIA forward as we strive to build on achievements that have been made so far this year. Bill will work closely with government, industry and other stakeholders to ensure the SIA continues to improve services for our customers, undertake enforcement activity and meet forthcoming challenges facing the security industry.

Bill Butler said: I have enjoyed being part of the team that has led the successful establishment of the Gambling Commission and am very pleased to be joining the SIA. These are challenging times for the private security industry and I look forward to meeting and working with the industry and stakeholders. With my team, I will be building on their achievements to deliver effective regulation for the industry and leading the SIA forward.
