SCOTT PARRY – Director at NPB Security

Scott Parry is one of the award-winning directors behind NPB Security.

In 2010, he and his business partner, David Barrett, identified a market for a higher-quality, more personalised security service in Perth. After talking it through over a couple of cold beers, they were ready to create that service, and they founded NPB Security.

Only three years later, they won the prestigious Telstra Business Award – WA Start Up – their first of many awards. They’ve continued to drive excellence in Perth’s security services industry ever since.

Experience and expertise

Scott brings over 15 years of security industry experience to the business. He’s organised security for every type of event, from sports fixtures and community events to music festivals and concerts, with crowds ranging from 35 – 350,000 people. He’s also a specialist in risk and security analysis.

‘I’ve been able to witness and positively contribute to the ever-changing climate, image, integrity and reputation of the security industry in Western Australia.’

Scott takes a collaborative approach to protecting his clients’ people, customers, assets and reputations. Over the years, he’s built strong working relationships with the Western Australian Police Department, Liquor Enforcement Unit and Racing, Gaming & Liquor.

David Barrett – Director at NPB Security

In 2010, when David Barrett co-founded NPB security with his mate Scott Parry, they had over 14 years’ combined security industry experience.

A career in the security industry wasn’t on David’s radar when he took a casual crowd controller job over 17 years ago. He was running a photography business and studying architecture part-time at university.

‘I wanted some extra income – I had no idea I would become fascinated by security operations. Eventually, I left university, sold my photography business and focused on building a career in security services.’

From casual to game-changer

David progressed from security officer roles to a variety of management positions. He often coordinated large teams of security personnel at events with crowds in excess of 350,000.

‘I gained expertise in security event planning, crowd management planning and the implementation of those plans for stadiums and entertainment venues across Perth. I also managed security operations on event day.’
