Darwin Clayton confirmed as major new sponsors of British Security Awards

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has signed security broker Darwin Clayton as the new regional and national security personnel sponsor of its major awards scheme for 2024.

Darwin Clayton, BSIA Associate members since 2004 and providers of insurance brokerage for over 100 years, will now be the lead sponsor of the Association’s five personnel-based categories. Aimed at recognising and rewarding security officer services across the United Kingdom region by region, the awards scheme culminates in recognising five national finalists every summer at the Association event, the British Security Awards.

The categories include Best Team, Service to the Customer, Outstanding Act, Security Manager of the Year, and the Gaby Hutchinson Award for Best Newcomer.

Mike Reddington, Chief Executive, BSIA, commented: “We are excited to confirm Darwin Clayton as major sponsors of our long-established security personnel categories. The British Security Awards are an integral part of the BSIA’s strategy and enable us to thank not only our members, but the individuals who represent them in keeping people, property and places professionally protected. Having these categories sponsored by a recognised company with close links to our members and the Association, is testament to the value placed on our awards scheme in the security realm.”

Mark Harris, Director, Darwin Clayton, added: “We are truly thrilled to have been selected as lead 2024 sponsor for these awards. Darwin Clayton’s heritage is built upon our long-standing relationship with the Security industry, and we have been a supporter of the BSIA and the annual awards for over 25 years. We are extremely proud to be partnering with the association, in support of the awards which recognise the diligence and professionalism of the security companies and their people that represent the industry.”

The regional security personnel categories are open until April 3rd, with winners announced later that month. Regional winners go forward to the national stage of the British Security Awards, on July 3rd, held at the Royal Lancaster London.
