David Taylor Smith, one of the directors of security firm G4S who has quit over the firm's failure to supply enough security guards for the Games, is an ex-British Army officer, who joined the firm as managing director of G4S Hong Kong in 1998, before going on to head its UK and Ireland operation.
In January, he was appointed as regional chief executive of the UK and Africa region. Mr Taylor-Smith and Ian Horseman Sewell, who is the other G4S director to resign, are not expected to receive any pay-offs outside of notice entitlements within their contracts.
