Gary Powers - Chairman of the Leisure Industry Security Section
Gary Powers is owner and Managing Director of The Regency Security Group. Established in 1993, The Regency Security Group is now one of the UK’s largest private security companies and the largest provider of Door Supervisors to the night time economy. With offices in key locations across the country and covering the full spectrum of security services, including Door Supervision, Guarding & Events, Community Marshalling, Key Holding & Mobile Patrols, Close Protection and Security Training, Regency can provide a bespoke solution to support all our customers' security needs.
Gary and The Regency Security Group were one of the first in the country to become an ACS company and have consistently achieved one of the highest scores in the country during the ACS audits. Regency Security are members of ACS Pacesetters and are also one of the few companies in the country to hold the CSAS accreditation.
Gary was elected as Chairman of the Leisure Industry Section in July 2016. Having been a prominent figure in the late night economy for 32 years, through his Chairmanship Gary is hoping he will be able to be the voice of the Leisure Industry that is sometimes missing when important decisions are made about the industry. Through his connections within the Door Supervision industry he hopes to be able to grow the Leisure Industry Section and encourage others to join the BSIA.
