About Us

R3S Global Ltd is a risk management consultancy led by Andrew Amery and Chris Scott OBE, two senior executives with extensive military and police careers behind them.

They launched R3S Global together with Stephen Cooper OBE (now a Non Executive Director) after working together in leading roles to help deliver a safe, secure and hugely successful London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, gaining years of unparalleled experience in the process.

Chris and Andrew, supported by a pool of specialist associates, now bring our unique and transferable experience to a wide spectrum of organisations, including government, major sports events, the entertainment, education and corporate sectors.

Without doubt, our strength is in our approach to fully integrating the appropriate solutions into your plans at all levels, across all areas and with all partners.

Our Team

Andrew Amery, Co-Founder and Director

Andrew operated at a strategic level in London’s Olympic and Paralympic project for ten years, from the bid in 2003, through the Games and into the dissolution stages. He has a unique knowledge of the demands and requirements for security at major international events, from initial strategic planning, risk approach and budget requirements to operational delivery. 

He is an excellent negotiator and works tirelessly to integrate security into wider planning. Listed as one of the most influential people in global security  back in 2012/3, Andrew now lectures on a number of Sports Administration Degree courses and works with the Charity 'Speakers For Schools' to help inspire students to enter into the sports and security industries.
