We’re spearheading an expansion drive across the UK and the European Union with three new senior recruits.
As a Glasgow-based lone worker technology specialist we are expecting to grow our market share significantly in England, Wales, Ireland and the European Union as corporate awareness of the importance of ensuring the safety of employees continues to advance.
We have recruited three key individuals. Lone worker and alarm receiving centre (ARC) technology specialist Pete Stanley, based in Devon, joins as Contract Manager for South West England. Bjorn Campbell-Lyons, a highly experienced lone worker solutions business development executive, based in Derbyshire, joins the company as Customer Acquisition Manager. Jonathan Lancaster, who developed his career in healthcare technology and communications solutions, has been appointed as the company’s new Business Advisor for Ireland. He is based in Belfast and will grow Safe Shores Monitoring’s business across Ireland.
Area Manager South West England
Pete was one of the founders of the lone worker section of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), which enables companies to bring safety and security to the UK’s eight million lone workers through protection devices and monitoring. He also spearheaded the development of the British Standard, BS8484, which serves as the essential benchmark for providers of lone worker safety services such as Safe Shores Monitoring.
Customer Acquisition Manager
Bjorn has been working in the lone worker and vehicle tracking industry for over five years. His 25 years of experience covers key sectors including healthcare, law enforcement, local authorities and housing associations.
Business Advisor – Ireland
Business development specialist, Jonathan, has over 14 years’ experience working with companies to help them grow the sales pipeline across public, private and third sectors. He offers unique insights to support the current trading environments across the UK and Ireland.
Tom Morton, CEO of Safe Shores Monitoring, said: “I am very pleased to have three highly experienced people, with a combined 30 years of lone worker product and industry experience, join us as we begin to expand our business in growing markets across the UK and Europe.
“Pete is one of the leading lights of the lone worker safety industry and brings with him a pedigree in ARC operations and security standards that is unsurpassed in the UK. Not only has he pioneered awareness of lone worker support in the UK, he was instrumental in the establishment of European partnerships which will ensure that Safe Shores Monitoring can support EU-wide emergency response needs.
“Bjorn brings with him a wealth of experience in public sector framework sales highlighting the benefits the highly effective, award-winning technology deployed by Safe Shores Monitoring can deliver to both lone workers and their employers.
“Jonathan brings with him some admirable skills and networks which will be essential to growing our business in the Republic and Northern Ireland. As Brexit approaches, having a presence in both markets will ensure that Safe Shores Monitoring continues to build on its existing relationships.
“We are excited about the opportunity to work with these lone worker industry professionals to expand our business in these key and growing markets.”
The BSIA estimates there are more than 8million people in the UK defined as lone workers. These work either in isolation or without direct supervision, often in places or circumstances that put them at potential risk and includes health and social care providers, housing officers, energy and utility service providers, telecom industry specialist, retail workers and others.
Safe Shores Monitoring works with over 150 corporate and government customers across the UK to provide state-of-the-art, cost-effective lone worker solutions that are in line with the latest data protection regulations.
