| Winner Mohammed Farooq with his award, BSIA Chaiman, Stuart Lowden and HRH Prince Michael of Kent |
The British Security Industry Association's Meet the Buyers event at IFSEC saw the presentation of a BSIA Chairman's Award for Services to Exporting to Mohammed Farooq, Commercial Officer to Saudi Arabia.
The BSIA's Chairman's Awards recognise outstanding contributions to the work of the British security industry and are usually presented at the Association's Annual Luncheon in July.
This year the Association has broken from tradition and BSIA Chairman, Stuart Lowden, presented the Services to Exporting award at IFSEC, acknowledging Mohammed Farooq's contribution to fostering relationships between the UK and Saudi Arabia.
BSIA Chairman, Stuart Lowden, comments: "Mohammed Farooq has been a long time supporter and active promoter of the fire, police and security sectors within Saudi Arabia. He has consistently coordinated active inward missions from Saudi to IFSEC. In addition he has been instrumental in helping to arrange and support three successful UK missions to Saudi Arabia. His enthusiasm has ensured that the right calibre of delegates have been invited to meet with UK companies both in the UK and in Saudi. During these missions, his ability to overcome difficulties has been proven several times over. Mohammed Farooq thoroughly deserves this award."
The rest of the BSIA Chairman's Awards will be presented at the Association's Annual Lunch on 15th July at the London Hilton, Park Lane.
