Lee Craig – ABII MIPSA – Managing Director:
As Managing Director of Pagoda Security Services Ltd, Lee who has just short of 10 years experience within the industry manages areas of the Security Company from the Head Office based in Newhaven. Having gained his experience from the days when he was serving as a Police Officer with Sussex Police dealing with major front-line incidents across the Sussex area, he left to commence a career in the security sector when taking up a position as an Operations Manager for a large Sussex based security provider. After several years he created Pagoda Security Services in 2009 which has now become one of the most popular and sought after security companies across the south coast, having rapidly expanded from within Brighton & Hove to a national level within 18 months due to the success and requests of a number of national corporate contracts using Pagoda Security.
Lee plays an active part in networking forums, training seminars and crime reductions partnerships and in January 2012 began sponsoring a number of local sports teams, including the University of Sussex Mens Rugby Team, who we hasten to add are doing extremely well! He has also recently started studying for a professional investigators course where he will no doubt absorb a huge amount of information which can be shared amongst current and prospective clients.
Clive Radley – BA(Hons), MSc, FSyI – HR & Business Support Manager:
Clive joined Pagoda Security in September 2012 after being carefully selected for the position as HR & Business Support Manager. Clive has an extensive background in both policing and the security industry after spending 11 years as a police officer with the Metropolitan Police, 3 of those as a sergeant in the east end of London.

Clive will not only be managing the training of Pagoda Security personnel but will oversee and coordinate the training courses which Pagoda Security will deliver to its customers.
