With 20 years’ experience in the security industry, Paul’s previous appointments include technical positions within Cooper Security and Elmdene.

Paul has made valuable contributions to the technical services we provide to members over the last six years and this appointment is well deserved. I am confident Paul will excel in his new position and look forward to working with him on the many challenges that lie ahead in the security industry.”
As a result of Paul’s promotion, the BSIA is now actively recruiting for a new Technical Officer, which represents an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, self-motivated technical professional to work as part of a dedicated team providing a wide range of advice and guidance to BSIA members on a number of technical issues relating to electronic alarm systems, physical security and manned guarding services.
