Gas Tag appoints Operations Director as it expands
Gas Tag has appointed John Roche as Operations Director as it gears up to officially launch its innovative gas safety product to the consumer market.
Mr Roche, formerly Head of Consultancy & Analytics at Callcredit Information Group, will be responsible for overseeing and developing the operational structure in order to enable the significant growth aspirations of the business.
John has 29 years’ experience in the UK and European financial services marketplace working in senior management positions for Barclays Bank and then Europe’s largest debt purchaser, Aktiv Kapital.
His most recent position has included working across multiple financial and non-financial sectors offering help and support to businesses on their operational structure, strategies and data optimisation throughout the whole of the customer life cycle.
Mr Roche said: “I am very pleased to be joining Gas Tag at such an exciting time. Throughout my career, I have always sought opportunities to drive innovative change and be involved in start-up environments – Gas Tag ticks both of those boxes and also many more.
“The pioneering Gas Tag solution will revolutionise the gas safety industry and ultimately save lives through the intelligent use of technology; that is something I want to be a part of.”
Growth and Expansion
This appointment brings the number of Gas Tag employees to 16 and marks the first of a further five posts to be recruited over the coming months as they expand into the UK consumer market.
The company is also in partnership talks with housing associations and private landlords who collectively own or manage 1.5 million homes across the UK, and are already well underway in getting the Gas Tag system to cover all of their properties.
Stephen Ullathorne, CEO of Gas Tag Ltd, said: “John will bring huge knowledge and experience to Gas Tag as we cement our moves into the wider public and private sector markets. I’m sure that he will be instrumental in helping to take Gas Tag forward in revolutionising gas safety and efficiency in the UK.”
