New Chairman announced at IPSA

International Professional Security Association (IPSA) : 04 August, 2009  (Company News)
After 8 years in office, Patrick Somerville has stepped down from his post of Chairman of the International Professional Security Association
Last month, at the first meeting of the IPSA International Council following the AGM in June, changes were agreed within the leadership of the Association.

At the AGM Patrick Somerville announced that he felt it was time for some fresh input to the Association as he had been in the post for a record period of eight years as International Chairman; previously Chairmen had normally held the post for only a few years.

At the International Council meeting, David Barratt, Business Account Director at Shield Security Services (Yorkshire) Limited in Hull, was unanimously elected as the new International Chairman for a three year term. David speaking shortly after being elected said "Anybody would have a hard time filling the role vacated by Patrick but I am looking forward to representing the interests of members.

Recognising the many occasions that Patrick has represented IPSA and his expressed willingness to continue representing the Association where that was appropriate, it was proposed and agreed that Patrick be appointed a Vice President of the Association.

Accepting the appointment, Patrick said "I have been able with the help of others to bring the Association to a new position of relevance and effectiveness always motivated by the desire to properly look after the interests of our members and their companies. It is now time to hand over the reins and I wish David and the new Council as much and more success in continuing this important work of promoting IPSA's role in the industry. I am honoured to be a Vice President and to have the opportunity to support IPSA in that new role."

Dennis Ricketts remains as Deputy International Chairman and Paul Trendall of Carlisle Security Services Limited has been appointed as Honorary Treasurer. Paul Trendall, along with Mike White, James Henderson and HRH Prince Bala-Tonglélé were elected to the International Council earlier this year. Shaun Murphy of Polyguard Security Services (UK) Ltd was elected to the International Council at the AGM , replacing Paul Macarthur who stood down.
