Kingdom’s Andy Howe becomes a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals

Andy HoweCongratulations to Kingdom’s Andy Howe, who has recently become a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals.

Andy joined the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals as a member in 2016, representing Kingdom. He became a Freeman of the Company on the 7th June 2017. In order to be invited to become a Freeman of the Company, Andy had to support the Company and show commitment to the Company, as well as attend a number of events.

The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals is a well-respected and supportive Livery Company of the Lord Mayor and the City of London. Membership of the Company is drawn from the security industry in its widest sense and includes leading security professionals from the industrial and retail sectors, serving and retired members of the police and armed services, security consultants, academics, heads of security for corporate businesses, investigators and electronic surveillance practitioners.

Members of the Company benefit first and foremost by being able to give something back to the Security Profession and by supporting its educational and charitable works. They can also take advantage of the networking opportunities the Company’s events provide, by attending formal Company luncheons and dinners, sporting events and other informal gatherings where they will meet and socialise with like-minded people. They may become Freemen of the City of London and Liverymen of the Company.  Liverymen vote in the annual elections of the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs.

Andy initially joined Kingdom as a Security Consultant in September 2015, and is now Head of Risk & Mitigation. He previously served as a police officer in the Metropolitan Police Service, retiring at Superintendent rank after thirty two years service.

As well as helping to promote Kingdom within the City of London and Central London as a whole, both among service users and amongst the security industry, Andy makes excellent use of his membership by networking with other security professionals, drawing on their knowledge and experience whilst sharing his in order to bring new benefits to Kingdom’s clients.
