Peoplesafe Appoints Peter McNaney as CTO

Peoplesafe is pleased to announce the appointment of Peter McNaney as Chief Technology Officer, with immediate effect.

Peter’s background in the technology sector is critical to supporting Peoplesafe’s ongoing growth plans. Having spent more than 20 years as CTO and product strategist for a number of private equity-backed companies across a range of industries, Peter has focused on successfully building the teams and infrastructure to enable the launch of compelling, technology-led products and services. This has proven vital in enabling those companies to thrive. Most recently, he was CTO of OneOcean, where he successfully developed and launched market-changing software for the commercial shipping sector.

Backed by private equity firm, ECI, Peoplesafe is the UK’s market leader in lone worker solutions, with a clear investment and growth plan focused on technological advancement. The lone worker solution market is expected to double worldwide between 2017 and 2022, driven largely by developments in app-based technology. Peoplesafe’s immediate focus is on proprietary app development by its in-house team to continue to deliver improved safety solutions that help to protect employees.

Today, Peoplesafe’s smartphone application and personal safety devices provide activity timers, fall detection, roaming sims, welfare checks and tracking services. In addition, the company is working collaboratively with leading technology providers such as the inclusion of geofencing and what3words, to provide unrivalled locational services within one solution. These developments help provide reassurance and protection for employers and employees alike.

Peter McNaney comments:

“I am excited by the opportunity Peoplesafe has to make a dramatic improvement to the safety of UK employees. Technological advancement will make a phenomenal difference in this sector and the combination of pioneering in-house developments and collaborations with up and coming software partners will enable us to continue to work at the cutting edge of safety technology.

Peoplesafe provides critical services to lone workers who are potentially at risk and it’s a responsibility the company takes very seriously. The solutions we provide help to safeguard employees from risk, providing them with better outcomes in the case of an emergency. During this current period of uncertainty – where we’re seeing more people than ever working alone or at risk – it’s an endeavour I am truly passionate about.

With the support of our investors at ECI, we will continue to invest in key areas and deliver outstanding products and services.”
