Andy Hollinson said, “We have seen a superb response to the crowd safety training that we’ve offered across the world since last year.
“Establishing and investing into a permanent base in Australia is a natural step forward for us, especially after building such strong links there through our partnership with Jim and Tara. Both are widely respected in the industry and will help drive our growth in a new market.
“It’s an exciting time to launch eResponse Crowd Safety Australia and we are delighted to be leading the way.”
