Former Metropolitan Police Service Chief Inspector Nicolas Staley MBA CSyP FCIPD has joined Linx International Group as senior consultant to develop business opportunities both in the UK and on the international stage.
The Linx International Group is a dynamic consultancy providing a comprehensive range of security, risk management and investigation services. The operation also comprises ARC Training International and Perpetuity Training, both of whom are very well established and known for providing world class, accredited security management training programmes.
Speaking about Staley’s appointment, David Gill MSc CSyP FSyI (CEO at the Linx International Group) commented: “Nick will be a valuable addition to our consultancy and training team. He brings with him skills that will enable the group to develop additional momentum in new and existing markets and further enhance what is an already significant performance.”
Staley’s 25-year career in the Metropolitan Police Service included developing expertise in counter-terrorism, protective security, command and control, major investigations and covert operations.
He gained extensive experience in high threat security operations within the Government Security Zone, Critical National Infrastructure operations and as a principal police counter-terrorism security co-ordinator during the 2012 London Olympics.
Having studied extensively to build an academic portfolio (culminating in him becoming a Master of Business Administration), Staley is now continuing his studies as a PhD student at the University of Leicester’s Law School.
Driving standards in the security sector
Ken Livingstone MSc FSyI, Linx International Group’s training director, added: “Nick’s industry experience combined with his academic qualifications reinforces the ethos of the group and our belief and commitment to driving up standards in the security sector.”
Staley has launched himself into his new role and is currently developing existing and new relationships with international partners in Africa, the Middle East and South East Asia’s emerging markets.
Nicolas will also be chairing some conference sessions in the Risk and Security Management Theatre at IFSEC International, which runs from 17-19 June at London’s ExCeL.
