Q-Free has made chief technology officer of traffic management, Dan Skiffington, head of its global traffic management division.

Skiffington has been with Q-Free since 2003, and will now be responsible for delivering the division's growth strategy, "including further unification of multinational software and hardware offerings, increased annual recurring revenues, as well as delivering on the company’s safety and sustainability efforts". 

Q-Free CEO Thale Kuvås Solberg said the appointment "underscores Q-Free’s commitment to solve increasingly complex mobility challenges through disruptive technology".

Skiffington has been a member of the company’s senior management team for the last nine years, most recently as CTO where he was tasked with unifying the company’s ATMS tech offerings into the single Kinetic Mobility platform. 

ITS technology expert Timothy Bean will succeed Skiffington on 1 December as EVP technology for Q-Free’s traffic management division.

The company says he has a "rich background in ITS, with experience on the private and public sector covering ITS hardware, software, and cybersecurity".

Skiffington says: “Tim doesn’t just bring domain experience; he has a good business sense and understands market potential and ROI. His leadership and ideas are prime for helping us achieve our recurring revenue goals.”
