New chief executive for Gangmasters Licensing Authority

The Gangmasters Licensing Authority (GLA) has welcomed its new Chief Executive, Paul Broadbent, who was previously Assistant Chief Constable at Nottinghamshire Police. After 30 years of service with the police Paul was looking for a change of career. He was attracted to the GLA role because of the similarities with his experience in enforcement and working with public and private sector stakeholders.

Mr Broadbent held a number of national policing portfolios including business crime and implemented a highly successful business crime reduction model across the industry, wider law enforcement and included major partners such as the National Business Crime Forum, British Retail Consortium and Federation of Small Businesses.

GLA chairman Margaret McKinlay said she was looking forward to working with Paul.

“The Government’s 2012 review of the GLA has presented us with challenges and opportunities. Paul is exceptionally well qualified to provide leadership to the GLA; his past experience will be put to very good use,” she said.

GLA chief exective Paul Broadbent said: “I am delighted to accept this high profile and demanding position and hope that my previous experience will assist in the GLA’s determination to protect vulnerable workers in the farming, food processing and shell fish industries.”
