The leading infrared, drone deployment and training company iRed has appointed two new senior staff to its growing workforce.
Chris Allington is a non-executive director and Lisa Webber is working as its new Finance Director.
With a fast-growing team of 16 and diversification into new areas of tech, managing director Ray Faulkner decided two strategic appointments were necessary.
Chris has a long history of entrepreneurial and business success and Lisa is working through her practice Teal Financial Consultancy.
iRed, headquartered in Emsworth, Hampshire, trains hundreds of people each month to utilise infrared and drone technology, as well as selling the hardware.
Chris said: “I am here to add a bit of business experience and strategic advice; to assess risks and access government programmes and funding.
“iRed is a business that really excites me because it has vast potential and already has diversified into many areas.
“The technology iRed uses and supplies is useful in a multitude of sectors and training people to use it has been a massive growth area.”
Lisa said: “I am at iRed to work on short and long term financial strategy and day-to-day compliance matters.
“Before setting up my own consultancy I worked for a large accountancy practice and also in financial management roles for a global pharmaceutical business.”
MD Ray said: “Our speed of growth and new potential that tech advances creates meant specialist expertise was required.
“Chris has already been shaping iRed’s direction and Lisa’s financial acumen will be of great advantage as our turnover grows.
“It also means our other staff are able to concentrate on their roles.”
