It is with great sadness that Tavcom Training has announced the passing of Mike Tennent. After battling a serious illness for over a year, Mike died peacefully yesterday afternoon in his much beloved home county of Hampshire.
Mike founded Tavcom Training back in 1994. The company subsequently became the leading security systems training business in the UK and, indeed, many other countries across Africa, the Middle East and beyond.
Mike was a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, a Board member of the Association of Security Consultants, a member of both ASIS International in the UK and The Security Institute and a technical consultant for the CCTV User Group.
“Mike was hugely respected across all sectors of the international security business sector and will be greatly missed by everyone who had the good fortune to have known him,” commented David Gill MSc CSyP FSyI, group managing director at the Linx International Group. “He was an absolute gentleman and a true professional. He will be very much missed by family, friends, colleagues and the industry as a whole.”
Tavcom Training respectfully requests that all messages of condolence from industry colleagues are addressed to Kevin Matthew, the company’s operations director, who will then pass on such messages to Mike’s immediate family at an appropriate time. Kevin can be contacted on (telephone) 01489 895099 and via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
All of us here at Risk UK and Pro-Activ Publications send our sincerest condolences to Mike’s family, friends and many industry colleagues.
