Foremost’s People

The Foremost Security Directors support over 120 mobile and static guards across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.


Paul Ritchie
Managing Director

“…Paul has a vast knowledge of the security industry which benefits both Foremost and the clients”


I’ve been with the Company since its formation in 2010 and with its predecessor since 1997, so more than 23 years in the same place! I’ve been involved in many aspects of the organisation over the years but am now concentrated on strategy and direction.

Hobbies & Interests:

I love my football, but unfortunately I’m too old and decrepit to play anymore, so watching is the only alternative. I try to play golf regularly and sometimes I succeed: good walk spoiled etc. I am a card-carrying member of CAMRA, so it won’t be a surprise to learn I like “proper” beer and pubs, though I have been known to sample the occasional glass of wine, especially vino tinto. Having recently moved to a new house, I hope to be setting up a vegetable garden soon, to replace the allotment I gave up as a result of the move.


I want to leave Foremost as the best independent security provider in the East Midlands area, offering value for money, but in a way that is profitable for us. I hope my contribution will be to guide us in the right direction to achieve this before I hang up my boots for that football pitch in the sky!

Matt Prince
Sales & Marketing Director

“…Matts support of Derby County doesn’t detract from his charms (much) or his ability and performance (at all)!”


I joined Foremost Security in August 2013 as a Business Development Manager and felt the role and the opportunity was the perfect fit for me. Over the last 7 years we have achieved fantastic growth and still have a very active role in new and existing business as well as which direction we market the business.

Hobbies & Interests:

I am big Derby County fan which can be interesting given our central Nottingham location. I also still play football and love spending time relaxing with my family


My motivation is to become the largest and best independent security provider in the East Midlands and having with such a great team around me is making it easier to achieve that goal.

James Vincent
Operations & Accounts Director

“…James knows what the clients need and has been, in days gone by, out there patrolling too!”


I have been with this organisation for 20 years and nothing else in the world of work

Hobbies & Interests:

I enjoy watching Nottingham Forest and spending time with family and friends. I have occasionally been known to play the odd musical instrument or 2…


Relieves the tedium of life at home… seriously… I enjoy coming to work but am thinking of retirement already!!
