Mobile ITS equipment supplier SRL Traffic Systems has appointed its first group product and compliance manager, in a move it says is designed to support the ongoing delivery of leading-edge solutions to the traffic management, construction, events and utilities sectors.
Kevin Gilday (pictured) has more than 40 years’ experience of new product development and lifecycle management. He joins SRL from traffic systems provider Dynniq, where he was responsible for innovation and product management.
Gilday will coordinate the management of new and existing products from across the company’s entire hire and sale portfolio: variable message signs, CCTV, traffic signals and the Urban64 traffic solution that coordinates multi-directional flows of traffic and pedestrians.
His role will include UK-wide business development, negotiation, coordination and the protection of SRL’s intellectual property, trademarks and forthcoming patents, together with technical compliance. His team is set for steady expansion under his leadership and direction. He will represent SRL in industry trade associations, including ARTSM, TOPAS and ITS Executive.
“SRL has ambitious plans to continue to develop and supply innovative new temporary ITS products to the UK and RoI market,” said SRL’s CEO Richard Tredwin. “Kevin’s appointment as our first group product and compliance manager will enable us to retain our competitive technological edge and continue to offer customers leading-edge equipment to allow them to efficiently address their traffic management needs.
“As an experienced and widely respected figure within the ITS sector, and with a network that spans both the temporary and permanent markets, he is the perfect fit for SRL.”
