Dynniq said it is ready to make significant steps in the smart mobility market in the UK and Ireland after appointing Tony O’Brien as its new managing director for the region.
The firm said Mr O’Brien has extensive knowledge of the mobility and energy market and brings a wealth of international experience. He was previously European managing director of Panasonic Systems & Solutions, where he was responsible for both organic and inorganic growth in B2B end-user sales.
Mr O’Brien said: ‘I am excited to contribute to the further growth and development of Dynniq in the market of smart mobility solutions. Energising mobility means connecting and integrating innovative traffic systems.
‘I fully endorse Dynniq’s mission to improve mobility and energy flows, in favour of road safety, sustainability and efficiency. As a company, we understand the dynamics of current mobility and energy flows and therefore we are able to improve existing issues, such as congestion and CO2 emissions.’
Dynniq said its current developments in smart mobility and energy will be accelerated.
Mr O’Brien added: ‘More and more products are being accessed and integrated via the Internet. This trend continues to accelerate within intelligent transportation systems such as: road-side systems, vehicles and traffic management systems. This means that these systems will become smarter: they get information about the world around them and can make better decisions based on it.’
Before Panasonic, Mr O’Brien was UK & Ireland sales and marketing director for Siemens Building Technologies, where he was responsible for many major projects such as city-wide surveillance, number plate recognition and integrated traffic management systems for Liverpool City Council & Merseyside Police.
He replaces Dr Daniel Ruiz, who held the role since 2013.
