Gas Tag hires Capita executive – Stewart Davison
RegTech company Gas Tag has appointed a former Capita executive to help grow the business.
Stewart Davison, who has an extensive background in the social housing sector, has joined the Liverpool headquartered company as Business Development Director.
He will be working across the fast-growing business supporting sales and marketing in the public and private sector as well as investigating new technologies including Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things.
Gas Tag uses its award-winning disruptive technology to help landlords, housing associations and local authorities to combat the scourge of illegal gas fitters and enforce gas safety regulations.
As soon as a physical Gas Tag is installed on the gas outlet in a property it tracks all the property’s gas appliances, services and installations – and can only be used by a qualified Gas Safe Registered engineer.
Supported by a number of MPs, industry figures and celebrities, Gas Tag is calling for the introduction of an MOT-style system to ensure strict enforcement of gas safety checks.
Stewart said: “I relish the opportunity of joining Gas Tag. It is an exciting company which has the potential to fundamentally change the way we all deal with gas maintenance and compliance. I’m looking forward to bringing all my experience of software, technology and business to a hungry team who want to change the world.”
Stephen Ullathorne, co-founder and CEO of Gas Tag, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Stewart on board. He is a great addition to our expanding team.”
Gas Tag’s system was described as ‘the most significant quantum leap in domestic gas safety compliance in 20 years’ by the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Carbon Monoxide.
Private equity house Waterland has invested in Gas Tag, valuing it at over £20 million.
