Human Recognition Systems re-appoints founder to CEO post

February 12, 2014 - 

Human Recognition Systems has announced that Neil Norman, the company’s founder, has been re-appointed as CEO.

According to the company, Norman has spent the last year working closely with his predecessor John Tonkiss to develop a new strategic vision for the company, developing a renewed focus on enterprise-class identity assured products for controlled working environments.

“2014 represents the launch and realisation of the I AM strategy, enabling a long-held vision to bring enterprise class, biometrical-enabled, industry-focussed solutions to market and establish Human Recognition Systems as a world leader in large-scale, non-Government Commercial Off-The-Shelf solutions,” Norman said. “With the launch of IAM, we continue our commitment to constant technological innovation through the development of robust and secure ways to manage identity, and as CEO I will ensure that the I AM strategy is driven primarily by the cloud-enablement of HRS’s core platforms MTrust, MSite, MFlow and MForce over the course of 2014.”

John Tonkiss is leaving to join the Board of McCarthy & Stone and will continue to work with Norman on the future strategy of HRS.

“Expect to hear a lot about our IAM Strategy as it unfolds and it comes alive in the form of products,” Norman said. “The innovation that the market and our customers have come to expect is about to go into hyper drive and we intend to drive development and adoption of biometric solutions in the commercial sector, stealing the limelight from the large-scale public sector programmes. Watch this space for some big announcements and contract awards.”

Reported previously, earlier this year, Human Recognition Systems updated its biometric system – Mflow Track v3.0 — in use at London’s Gatwick airport.
