Human Recognition Systems appoints Paul Casson as Business Development Manager

June 28, 2013 - 

Human Recognition Systems has appointed Paul Casson as Business Development Manager, complementing other recent appointments to strengthen its foothold in the aviation sector.

Coming from AOptix Technologies, Paul Casson brings over 20 years experience in the field of biometric identity and entrance control to the role of Business Development Manager. According to the company, Casson’s knowledge and expertise will support HRS’s ongoing expansion within the aviation sector. Accustomed to working with a global customer base, Paul will be responsible for seeking out opportunities for overseas expansion and growing HRS’s relationships with key players in the global aviation sector. He will also support the continued deployment within UK airports of the aviation-focused identity management systems that sit within HRS’s MFlow suite.

“I’m delighted to have joined the aviation team at HRS at this very exciting time,” Casson said. “Having followed HRS’s progress over the past few years, I have seen its MFlow products emerge from smart innovative platforms to mature and robust solutions that have been successfully deployed in major European airports. My focus will now be on increasing awareness of the wide-ranging applications for biometrics and introducing our state-of-the-art technology to a much broader audience.”

Reported previously, the company recently deployed its MFlow system at the Edinburgh airport.

In addition, HRS recently demonstrated a mobile app for the customization of passenger travel experience at Gatwick Airport.

The company has also recently appointed Ian Cushion as Marketing Manager and Steve Huckle as Senior Buyer at HRS. As we reported, Nigel Seddon has also joined the company as its new Finance Director.

”The skills and experience these new team members bring to HRS will be invaluable in helping to continue moving the business forward,” Neil Norman, Founder and Head of Innovation at HRS said. “As we take the business into the next phase, our focus remains firmly on innovation and bringing to market new ideas and products which will benefit customers to whom managing identity is crucial. These appointments strengthen our industry insight and will support us in identifying new ways in which we can help customers, create efficiencies, strengthen security and, in the case of aviation, improve the experience of passengers.”

Airport deployments are not the only focus of HRS. Just yesterday, the company announced the launch of a new platform for student ID and attendance verification.
