Wednesday 25th November 2015 (London, UK) – Paul Staples, previously an Executive Director at J.P.Morgan, has joined Voyage Control as COO (remaining also as an Advisor to EC1 Capital).

His arrival will further strengthen the Executive team, ensuring that Voyage Control meets its aggressive international expansion and growth trajectory. Voyage Control in the past month opened its New York office and has scaled with a number of pilot deployments along the eastern seaboard.

Voyage Control Founder and CEO James Swanston says, “I’m very happy to welcome Paul to the team. His arrival provides us with a big boost in expertise and bandwidth at a crucial time as we look to bring on large enterprise clients across Europe and North America.

I’m excited to join Voyage Control at such a crucial time in the company’s development,” says Paul. “In particular I’m looking forward to working in an industry that’s ripe for change. The product is fantastic and has already demonstrated its value to a range of industries from Events to Construction – the skies have had air traffic control for nearly a century, it’s time to take those disciplines with our cutting edge technology to improve the freight industry.

The Voyage Control team is thrilled to welcome Paul and is excited to develop the business further with his input, helping transport hubs lower their logistics costs even more efficiently and effectively.
