The Peter Greenwood Award is the longest established individual award in the security profession and has been in existence since Peter’s untimely death in January 1995.   In his position 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, which is sponsored by the Fire and Security Association (FSA) and awarded by the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals (WCoSP), was presented to Raymond by TV Personality Marcus Brigstocke, FSA Chairman Pat Allen and ECA President Phil Fagg at the ECA’s Gala Dinner and Awards Evening which was held at the ICC, Birmingham on Saturday the 22nd June.

The event was attended by 450 of the great and good of the building services engineering, fire, security and risk management industries.

Commenting on his award, Raymond said, "I am thrilled and honoured to be the recipient of the Peter Greenwood this year, and would like to thank the FSA and Worshipful Company of Security Professionals for this recognition. I had the privilege of working with Peter Greenwood during the 1990's, who was a tireless ambassador for the industry and that makes this award particularly special to me. Thank you to those that were kind enough to nominate me."

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.”
