The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) has named Richard Fogelman as its new Chief Executive, effective 1 March 2023.

Fogelman takes over from Richard Jenkins, who leaves NSI after leading it for nine years.

Fogelman has more than 15 years’ management experience – including almost a decade as CEO of a leading UK charity – a law degree and experience in London’s financial markets, having worked at numerous banks and financial firms before embarking in the commercial world of property operations and management.

Most recently, he was CEO of Grief Encounter, a national charity supporting bereaved young people.

During his time there, Fogelman restructured the business, established a national helpline serving over 10,000 callers annually and has driven revenue growth from £480k in 2013 to £3.01m in 2021.

Commenting on his appointment, Fogelman stated: “It’s a privilege to be appointed as Chief Executive of NSI and I am thrilled to be joining a very talented and enthusiastic team.

“I am looking forward to drawing upon my experience to further promote the value of security and fire safety third party certification both within the sector and more widely to commercial buyers, the public sector, specifiers and homeowners.

“Ever changing technology, increasing customer expectations and new, more stringent standards provide an exciting opportunity that I am excited to start shaping.”

Jenkins added: “I am delighted to welcome Richard Fogelman, confident in the knowledge his wealth of experience will ensure he is well placed to maintain and further leverage the organisation’s mission, vision and expertise, as it continues to support stakeholders, and the professional security and fire safety sectors in raising standards that serve the interests of protecting people, property and wider public safety.”
