The new Board Directors will bring with them a wealth of experience and benefits to all members
The Security Institute, the leading membership body for security professionals, appointed Lisa Sharkey and Nick Hymans CSyP as Directors of the Main Board with effect from 4th November 2013.
Lisa Sharkey is a partner of Popplestone Allen Solicitors, specialising in licensing and entertainment law. Lisa has particular interest in security (and regulation) due to her professional involvement with the leisure industry, particularly the complex matters surrounding late-night licensing. She will be responsible for Legal/Governance/Risk for the Board.
"I am delighted to have been appointed to join the Board and very much look forward to working with my fellow Directors to help the Institute grow from strength to strength and to support it in its goal to achieve Chartered status."
Nick Hymans works for the Security Services department at Credit Suisse in London. He has previously worked with Control Risks, ArmorGroup and Group 4Falck after a successful career in the Army. He is heavily involved in resettlement of military leavers, and with his extensive overseas experience, will provide useful support to our International Development. He will be responsible for the Register of Chartered Security Professionals.
“I am very much looking forward to working closely with the other members of the board and fellow CSyPs to try and place the CSyP qualification into a defined, attainable and easily understandable career path for current and future Security Professionals.”
Security Institute Chairman Emma Shaw said of the appointments: “I am delighted to welcome our Directors to the Security Institute board. They bring with them a wealth of experience which will bring benefits to all members”.
