The Austrian traffic technology group Swarco has announced a series of new appointments in the UK, following last year’s acquisition of the APT Group of Companies.
As part of a restructuring of the business, SWARCO has created a new Parking and E-mobility division comprising APT SkiData, Veri-park, Evolt and APT Security Systems. The new division is to be led by Sean Dunstan, the former Managing Director of APT SkiData, who assumes a wider group role.
Sean’s place as Managing Director of APT SkiData is taken by Peter Brown who joined recently from Securitas where he was Head of Regional Technical Directors.
Swarco’s UK subsidiary, Swarco Traffic Ltd, is being expanded to include the SignPost Solutions business to create a new Traffic Management and Control division based in Richmond, Yorkshire, and will be run by Managing Director Jeremy Cowling.
The restructure and new appointments are part of a previously announced strategy for SWARCO to strengthen its parking and electro-mobility businesses which it says is a key investment focus.
It also follows the retirement of Dermot Murphy, Chief Executive of the APT Group of Companies, after almost 28 years with the business. He will continue with the company as a non-exec Director.
