BSIA appoints Chief Commercial Officer

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has appointed Paddy Kyle as its Chief Commercial Officer. Paddy joins the association bringing with him 25 years of commercial experience in the fire and security industry, specialising in leading sales teams. He has a strong track record for aligning marketing strategy with sales objectives for companies such as Texecom.

His prime responsibility in his new role will be to drive membership retention and accelerate membership growth, working closely with the Marcomms and Membership teams.

“I am delighted that Paddy will be joining the BSIA as our new Chief Commercial Officer. His many years of experience in the industry working with leading companies in the field will provide great assistance to the Association as we build on our recent successes and drive for accelerated growth in the coming years,” said Mike Reddington, Chief Executive, BSIA.

Paddy is based in Yorkshire and takes up his post at the beginning of August 2023.

This news follows an earlier announcement in the year of the BSIA electing its new President, as broadcaster and campaigner Nick Ross was appointed its new President. He took up the role in April, and his primary goal is to continue the work on developing the relationship between police and private security.

“Crime is a measure of society’s wellbeing, and the UK does not have a good enough record, midway down the league table for industrialised nations. We all know prevention is better than cure, and learning is better than blame. Crime reduction requires industry to take responsibility for making its services and products safe, as well as an ever-closer relationship between the private sector and police,” said Nick Ross, President, BSIA, at the time of the announcement.
