The Board of the Security Institute appoints new Chief Executive

Thursday 26 January 2023 -

The Board of the Security Institute is delighted to announce the appointment of Angela Vernon Lawson, as the new Chief Executive (CE), effective 1st January 2023.

Angela was previously appointed as the Security Institute’s Chief Operating Officer and was asked by the Board to take the role of interim CE in April last year. As Chief Executive, Angela brings her wealth of relevant and valuable experience in business, academia and the security industry. The Board has seen a number of enhancements to the management of the Institute in the last 8 months that serve to strengthen governance, improve operating practices and streamline ways of working.

Whilst we initially held an external recruitment process it became very apparent, we had the right individual already working for us in Angela, who will be able to deliver enormous value to both the members and the wider security industry.
The Board looks forward to the on-going development of the work already put in train by Angela.

Angela Vernon-Lawson replied said “It is a great privilege to work for The Security Institute on behalf of its members and build on the work already achieved. Going forward I am excited at the prospect to enhance the member experience and to explore new avenues for those working in, or exploring career opportunities within the security sector”
