Mick Creedon QPM takes over the role as chair of Atmaana’s Emergency Services and Security Division with immediate effect. The news follows on from the announcement that Prime Minister Theresa May has appointed Peter Maddison QPM as chair of the Armed Forces’ Pay Review Body. Maddison has served as chair at Atmaana since 2012, providing strategic and operational direction to the business.

Harish Natali, CEO of Atmaana, commented: “Our thanks go to Peter Maddison for the sterling work he has done over the past six years. We wish him well in his new appointment. We would also like to welcome Mick on board and look forward to working with him.”

Creedon recently retired after 37 years in policing, the last decade of which were spent as the Chief Constable of Derbyshire Constabulary. Creedon was the national policing lead for matters such as serious and organised crime, investigative interviewing, financial investigation and asset recovery and also served as the policing lead for the development of the network of multi-force and multi-agency Regional Organised Crime Units.

Creedon served as a detective at every level in the police service and has extensive experience of homicide investigations and investigating allegations of corruption and serious and organised crime. He has conducted many sensitive and high-profile external inquiries on behalf of other forces and agencies.

Commenting on his new appointment, Creedon informed Risk UK: “I’m delighted to be joining the Atmaana family and I very much look forward to working with the business and its myriad clients to explore new opportunities and develop the sector going forward.”
