Andy Coates, who is National Enforcement Services’ Chief Executive Officer, has received the Frank Martin Award from the Association of British Investigators (ABI) in recognition for his work as one of the top private investigators in the country.
Mr Coates was given the ABI award as praise for his service and dedication to the sector where he has worked for over twenty years. He has progressed from being head of the northern branch to being a member of the governing council. That is not all; his off-duty time also includes being a volunteer for the ABI, helping to boost the image of the organisation by directing and planning its marketing strategy.
Andy later commented on receiving the award:
“The ABI is crucial to the success of the private investigation sector… This award goes a long way to recognise the efforts so many private investigators put into their work and is a marvellous accolade for National Enforcement Services and the work we do.”
Tony Imossi, president of the ABI said:
“The Frank Martin award recognises those who have continued to show outstanding commitment to not only our organisation and its members but to the sector as a whole.
“With his team of bailiffs and administrators, Andy works to reclaim finances and properties for private companies, solicitors and even individuals. As well as a being a member of several private investigation organisations Andy heads up National Enforcement Services which deal in surveillance, debt collection and training, with services ranging from arrest warrants to forfeitures of lease and trespasser evictions.”
Andy has been involved with National Enforcement Services since he founded it in 1979 and has continued to increase the range of products and services the firm offers whilst providing staff with the latest technologies in their pursuits to reclaim debt.
The company’s head office is based in Darlington, County Durham and they offer services on a ‘no recovery no fee’ basis as well as providing training courses for bailiffs and civil enforcement agents.
