Management team


Director of Academy - Sam Merison

Sam is the Principal Safety Education Officer at Richmond Upon Thames, the Vice Chairman of the Road Safety GB London group and the previous Vice Chairman of the Institute of Road Safety Officers.

Sam’s background was initially in sustainable transport; however, with the obvious links and crossovers with road safety, he was soon steered in that direction. Sam has a particular interest in teenage road safety and his work with one such group resulted in them receiving a Prince Michael Award for secondary school initiatives.

She is also the Road Safety GB Policy & Management representative and Regional Secretary for Road Safety GB South East Region.
