- Former head of British Intelligence to provide strategic insight and direction for driving advanced security and surveillance solutions
TimeSight Systems(TM), the industry leader in Video Lifecycle Management (VLM), today announced that Sir Richard Dearlove has joined the TimeSight Strategic Advisory Board. With a distinguished career of over 40 years at Britain's Secret Intelligence Service (also known as MI6) that includes five years as the agency's head, Sir Richard brings his extensive knowledge and renowned background to TimeSight Systems as the company continues to grow and evolve worldwide.
The ability for TimeSight Systems to attract the quality of advisors such as Sir Richard speaks to the power of TimeSight VLM solutions and its potential to increase security worldwide, said Charles Foley, CEO and Chairman of TimeSight Systems. Sir Richard's knowledge, experience and contacts are a welcome addition to our current high caliber advisory, investment and management teams that will assist us in increasing the penetration of TimeSight solutions as we make high resolution and longer retention of video surveillance data effective and affordable.
Sir Richard joins a group of distinguished industry security veterans on TimeSight Systems' Strategic Advisory Board which includes Dr. Fran Harvey, former Secretary of the United States Army.
Seldom have I seen technology advances that not only enhance our ability to increase the effectiveness of security, but that simultaneously reduce the budget burden normally associated with such initiatives, said Sir Richard. TimeSight's VLM technology presents a solution for the increased need for security at affordable costs in today's turbulent political and financial climates. I look forward to working closely with TimeSight Systems and the other members of the Strategic Advisory Board.
Sir Richard was educated at the Monkton Combe School near Bath, England. After a year at Kent School in the United States, he went to Queen's College, Cambridge, a favorite recruiting ground for the intelligence agencies. He began his MI6 career in 1966 and two years later, received his first overseas posting to the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. After postings in Prague, Paris and Geneva, Sir Richard became head of the MI6 Washington station in 1991. He returned to the UK in 1993 to serve as director of personnel and administration and became director of operations the following year. Sir Richard received a knighthood in June 2001, and took up the position of Master of Cambridge University's Pembroke College after leaving MI6 in 2004.
