Vismo, Global Tracking Specialist, has appointed Lone Worker industry expert Craig Swallow as CEO, with a focus on developing the company into a globally recognised leader for locating, monitoring and protecting international, local and home workers.
With over 18 years of specific experience & focus in the Lone Worker security industry, Craig brings to his new post wide ranging knowledge in lone worker service innovation, marketing, business strategy and sales growth across continents.
He took his previous company, SoloProtect, from a wearable device idea in the UK to sales in excess of £8m “focusing on international growth, customer value and product innovation,” he says, adding, “I believe Vismo is exactly the right opportunity I was looking for to step up and develop value-based solutions for a much wider international reach.”
“With a client base featuring many of biggest names in the Fortune 500 and FTSE 100, a proven track record globally and its own deep knowledge of tracking technology, Vismo is well placed to grow and continue its innovation in the global traveller and lone worker space.”
That innovation includes the Vismo Global Traveller App, inclusive of lone worker monitoring, Vismo Incident Management and Mass Notification offerings, all of which are available anywhere in the world via the company’s Secure Portal.
Tim Williams, Founder & Chairman of Vismo, says “As someone who was one of the original creators of the Lone Worker market in general and oversaw its development for a number of years, Craig is a great addition to our team. We look forward to working with him to help us consolidate and expand our position in North America, the UK and the rest of the world as we help clients meet their duty of care towards their employees wherever they are travelling or working.”
