TraknProtect Bolsters Technology Outlook with New CTO Hire as Company Grows
CHICAGO (FEBRUARY 26, 2019) –
TraknProtect has announced the appointment of Tim Hansen to the position of Chief Technology Officer. Hansen will oversee the continued development of the company’s software and hardware products while maintaining TraknProtect’s reputation as a robust and secure technology platform in the hospitality personal safety segment.
“Tim joins us with exactly the right experience and approach to growing and scaling a startup that we need to further advance the momentum we’ve gained as an organization,” commented CEO Parminder Batra. “While our solution is being increasingly deployed by a growing number of major hotel companies, we want to solidify that reputation as being agile and innovative in our product development while also being a trusted and secure technology partner,” she added.
Hansen comes to TraknProtect with over twenty-five years of experience designing, developing and leading technology teams, most recently with health tech provider, SA Ignite, where he was chief technologist, system architect and a founding member of the management team.
TraknProtect grew dramatically last year, securing nearly fifty percent of the Chicago market following the introduction of safety button legislation, and Hansen’s appointment comes in the wake of other recent key appointments bolstering the company’s sales, service and channel partner initiatives.
