Darrell Shaw

Executive Committee Member

Darrell is currently Systems Consultant at telent Technology Services Ltd (telent) and is based in the midlands. This role sees Darrell provide customers with first class support, not only with designing control room systems, but also delivering and supporting. Darrell’s breadth of skill and expertise in the emergency services sectors spans more than 15 years, having worked within several business areas in the sector. Before joining telent in 2016, Darrell worked for TRW/ Northrop Grumman as Test Team Leader for two years, which gave Darrell a detailed in-sight on the critical path of rolling out a new network - something which proved helpful for his current role at telent.

In 2003, Darrell moved into a service role within Airwave Solutions Ltd which saw him gain critical knowledge of operational activities as well as support customers during unplanned and life-changing events in the UK. During Darrell’s time at Airwave, he moved into a marketing role which saw him transform the way the company demonstrated its products and services, create and support events such as BAPCO and the previously known Tetra World Congress.

After eight years at Airwave, Darrell had a short stint at Ctalk as Technical Account Manager before making the transition to APD Communications in 2013 where he became Business Development Consultant. Darrell was responsible for pushing the APD Cortex and Aspire products forward and moving the goal posts on what matters within emergency services control rooms.

Darrell joined the Executive Committee of BAPCO in October 2018 in order to support the committee and to bring new ideas to ensure BAPCO’s goals in the future are exceeded.
