SMART moves - appointment

New appointment is a SMART move for industrial IT company

A new Business Development Manager to concentrate on the burgeoning SMART industries sector for SolutionsPT.

Martin Roberts has been appointed to the role of Business Development Manager for SMART Markets, to focus on developing SolutionsPT’s presence in SMART cities, airports, buildings and infrastructure projects. He will also be developing its Machine-to-Machine (M2M) SMART services.

Martin has previously held director-level positions with companies including EA Technology, Invensys Operations Management and DeepStream Technologies. Over the last 20 years, he has introduced innovative technologies and solutions to new and emerging industrial, commercial, marine, and utility markets in Europe, North America and Asia.

Martin comments, “There are a number of challenges facing SMART cities at the moment. The biggest challenge being that the return on investment is not always obvious or immediate. We need leaders who have the long-term vision to invest in unlocking the existing data so that the industry can grow and flourish.

“I plan to develop SolutionsPT as a ‘thought leader’ in this industry and encourage our clients to have confidence in the SMART markets”.

Phil Gillard, SolutionsPT, General Manager, added “We are delighted to welcome Martin to the team. He has held a number of top-level positions with some of the major players in this industry, and we’re excited to see how he will develop our SMART activities and provide added value for all our customers in this area.”
