To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Tom Kopinski and I am based in South West London.
I am a client-focused Corporate, Residential & Executive Security Specialist with over 14 years’ experience of delivering first-class protection to safeguard high net worth clients, red carpet, events, and prestigious premises across the London area. Physically-fit, tactful, diplomatic, loyal and discrete, I have received excellent feedback from clients regarding my professionalism and skills. A member of the British Bodyguard Association and Armour Agent, I possess SIA Frontline Public Space Surveillance (CCTV) and Frontline Close Protection Licences and have worked for some of the UK’s leading security providers including Wilson James and J. Regan Security Services, delivering high- and low-profile security for celebrities, politicians, athletes and VIPs. Venues and events include The Royal Wedding in Windsor Castle, Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London, ITV and BBC Studios, London Fashion Week and events at Kensington Palace. As well as conducting risk and threat assessments, I professionally managed conflict and quickly responded to incidents, coordinating the team and prioritising the safety of the client. I previously led the Residential Security Team Leader at the US Ambassador’s Residence in London, and also managed the Embassy Security Team, where I received ‘Employee of the Month’ Awards on several occasions due to personal dedication, customer service and 100% success rate in maintaining 24/7 security. A key part of my role was to manage security arrangements for state visits and events, in collaboration with US Marines, Diplomatic Protection Group (Metropolitan Police), Secret Service Agents and Regional Security Office.
