New ASIS UK chairman

David Clark is the new Chairman of the UK Chapter of the security management body ASIS. He was elected at the ASIS UK annual general meeting in December and will take office on January 1.

He with Dr Peter Speight CSyP, Dawn Holmes MSc CPP, and Steve Emmins had been co-opted to the ASIS board during 2015 and were formally elected at the AGM.

David Clark, pictured, has been in the security industry for 21 years since leaving the Army in 1993. He has held a number of senior corporate security positions besides in the private sector. He is Head of Security for the Francis Crick Institute, a scientific research centre in London which is due to open in spring 2016 next door to the British Library and St Pancras station. Previously, David has led on a number of policing and counter terrorism initiatives in London’s South Bank and in recent years has designed and brought in executive protection and physical security programs for major companies in the UK and overseas.

He is a member of the ASIS CSO Roundtable, the university security management association AUCSO, a committee member and secretary of the Project Griffin London Executive and Chair of the Security Commonwealth on behalf of ASIS UK. He replaces Andy Williams CPP who leaves the Chairmanship after two years to take a European role for ASIS International as Assistant Regional Vice Chairman of Region 9A.

David is unusual in that he has CPP PSP PCI after his name – which stand for the three main ASIS qualifications, namely the Certified Protection Professional, Physical Security Professional and Professional Certified Investigator.

He takes the role at a busy time for the chapter, with the ASIS European Conference returning to London from April 6 to 8, and the upcoming launch of a number of educational and partnership initiatives. Each Chapter is self-funding and support for the chapter from sponsors, partners and exhibitors was at an all-time high in 2015, the ASIS UK chapter reports.
