The Peter Greenwood Award is the longest established individual award in the security profession and has been in existence since Peter’s death in January 1995. As Chairman of the Security Industry Lead Body (SILB) Implementation Group, Peter worked tirelessly to enhance the cohesion and professionalism of the security industry as it was then.
The award, sponsored by the Fire and Security Association (FSA) and awarded by the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals (WCoSP), was presented to Raymond by comedian Marcus Brigstocke, FSA Chairman Pat Allen and ECA President Phil Fagg at the ECA’s Gala Dinner and Awards Evening, at the ICC, Birmingham on Saturday, June 22. The event was attended by 450 of the great and good of the building services engineering, fire, security and risk management industries.
Stefan Hay, Head of the FSA said: “Raymond Clarke has been a leading and well respected figure and has held senior roles within the security industry and the vocational education sector since 1988. Originally appointed as the Training Manager for the British Security Industry Association, he went on to create the Security Industry Training Organisation and successfully led the organisation in becoming one of the country’s leading National Training Organisations. His tireless dedication to the sector led to the development of a training and vocational learning infrastructure that ranged from the development of the first National Occupational Standards, to developing supporting training materials, resulting qualifications, relationships with awarding bodies and regional cooperatives dedicated to the delivery of apprenticeships for the security systems industry. He also became one of the country’s most successful bid writers for public funding to support education in the sector securing £ millions for educational based projects. He has made a valuable and long lasting contribution and he is, therefore, a most worthy recipient of the Peter Greenwood Award.”
