CEO Ian Thompson

Ian Thompson

British APCO Chief Executive

Ian joined British APCO in August 2016 as Operations Manager after retiring from a successful 30 year career in the police. He was appointed as Chief Executive Officer by the Executive Committee in December 2016.

Ian was previously a volunteer member of the BAPCO Executive Committee for a number of years and has a strong background in Public Safety critical communications and IT from his time with the police service.  

Ian has changed the focus of the association from blue light critical communications to a more inclusive membership involved in all areas of public safety technology. His focus now is a new three year strategic plan reviewing all aspects of the association.  He represents the association at many events throughout the year and is keen to expand BAPCO's influence as well as benefits for our members.
