New Year's honours touch two UK security companies

02 January, 2008
The New Year's honours list had very few representatives from the private security industry this year although there was good representation in the public sector for services to the police and in the defence area.


Honours this year went to Michael Greenway, a senior consultant at EADS Defence and Security UK who received an OBE for services to business in Wales and also to Dolores Byrne of QinetiQ who also received an OBE for services to the defence industry. QinetiQ used to be DERA, the UK's public sector Defence Evaluation and Research Agency before it was privatised and Dr Byrne worked her way through the organisation in various research posts before becoming the Public Sector Managing Director. Apart from these two defence industry suppliers, no-one else in the security industry was honoured this year. Others to receive awards this year included Timothy Gbedemah and Colin Harbin, both from the Home Office in the Border and Immigration Agency.
