Security services provider Corps Security has named Chris Nickols chairman. He has been on the board as a non-executive director since March 2020 and was a shareholder trustee for seven years before that.
Nickols completed a full career in the Royal Air Force, commanding at all levels and gaining extensive experience in security operations and public sector governance at the highest board levels.
In his final role he was chief of defence intelligence, Ministry of Defence, acting as one of the principal intelligence advisors to the UK Government.
He was also the leader of international and UK national intelligence collaboration and relationships, and was responsible for security and management of some of the UK’s most sensitive sites.
“I hope that my deep understanding of threat assessment, as well as physical and technical security, will continue to bring value to Corps and its customers,” said Nickols.
Mike Bullock, chief executive of Corps Security said of Nickols: “His broad knowledge and experience of the security sector and military veterans will continue to be invaluable to us.”
