Security Institute changes management structure

The Security Institute : 07 May, 2009  (Company News)
Reshuffle at the Security Institute after board meeting approvals
Following the first meeting of the new Board of Directors, Chairman Mike Bluestone has announced the new management structure including the appointment of an additional Vice-Chairman.

David Gill MSyI continues his existing role as Vice-Chairman, and will be concentrating on the business side of the Institute. In this respect he will be directing all commercial issues, supporting marketing, recruitment, mentoring and events. David has been Vice-Chairman since 2007, and is the founder of Linx International, a specialist security and Risk Management consultancy. He is also working on the final stages of his Masters degree in Security Management with Loughborough University.

Also appointed as Vice-Chairman is Doug Cook MBE FSyI, moving from his previous position as the Validation Board Chairman. Doug is currently International Security VP for Deutsche Telekom AG, and has been a Director of the Institute since January 2004. In establishing this new role, the Institute is placing a much higher emphasis on its work in raising standards, lobbying and sharing best practice as well as the continuing work of the Academic and Validation Boards.

Together, David and Doug will be supporting the Chairman in formulating overall strategy.

The following appointments were agreed, where each director now has a specific area of responsibility:

Nigel Churton continues as Company Secretary, but also assumes responsibility for Financial Management and Controls.

Emma Shaw moves from Registrar to Chairman of the Validation Board, and continues to work with the VB members to process all applications for membership.

David Cresswell becomes the director responsible for Standards, including Best Practise Guides and security Special Interest Groups. This is a huge task, and David will be looking to co-ordinate a team of specialist volunteers over the coming months to take this forward.

Mark Button continues as Chairman of the Academic Board, working with his committee to enhance the professionalism of security management and provide a link between SyI and Higher Education Institutions (HEI's) and appropriate training providers. His committee will be strengthened by Joe Greenan, who assumes responsibility for SyI Qualifications and the Distance Learning Programme. Joe will also look after Ethics for the Institute, and cover any legal issues that arise.

Martin Smith will be co-ordinating Marketing and Communications, and overseeing SyI's Events programme with the help of the Events Team. They will work closely with the Recruitment Team.

Maria Cox is now responsible for the Mentoring programme, and will be contacting all the members who previously expressed an interest in this area. Maria is also passionate about student membership, and will be supporting this area of the business too.

Looking ahead, Azeem Aleem is ideally placed to provide research into Special Projects, whilst Ken Livingstone will be focussing on our long term plans for Chartered Status.
