Alan Clamp, CEO at the Security Industry Authority, is to step down from the organisation in the autumn after more than three successful years at the helm. Alan will take on the role of CEO at the Professional Standards Authority from 1 November 2018.
Commenting on his decision to leave the SIA, Dr Clamp said: “It has been a great privilege to lead the SIA. I have been supported by a staff team who have consistently performed to a very high standard with dedication and professionalism.
“I would like to thank them for this. Their commitment, together with the engagement and support of the private security industry, has enabled us to achieve our objectives and rise to the challenges and opportunities we have faced over the last three years”.
He added: “I am very proud of what the SIA has achieved and am confident that the great team of staff we have in place will continue to deliver our core objectives of raising standards and protecting the public as well as delivering high quality regulation”.
Dr Clamp joined the SIA in June 2015. He has overseen the introduction of the SIA’s online licensing system; work to strengthen and review the SIA Approved Contractor Scheme; championed an increased engagement with the industry;
and put in place robust governance and assurance processes to ensure the smooth running of the organisation.
Elizabeth France, SIA Chair said: “It has been a pleasure working with Alan as CEO of the SIA. On behalf of the Authority, the senior executive team and staff, I thank Alan for his commitment to the work of the SIA. We shall miss his calm and incisive leadership, but we are confident that the solid foundations he has laid will serve us well in the future. We wish him well in his new role. Our task now is to begin a recruitment process to identify a successor in time to ensure continuity and progress across all areas of the SIA’s work.
She added: “Details of this recruitment process will be available on the SIA’s website next week”.
