WFS Technologies, a provider of subsea Internet of Things (SIOT®) devices, is embarking on a major transformation programme to manage its rapid business expansion and ensure consistent quality and delivery of its product line.

The company also aims to capitalise on its range of smart products launched over the last year.

To enable a smooth transition and seamless delivery of products for its customers, WFS has appointed Peter Sharpe as interim CEO, taking over from Brendan Hyland who is stepping down after founding the firm more than 17 years ago in 2003.

Sharpe, who was formerly a non-executive director of WFS, brings a wealth of experience. His career has included being Project Director of Digitisation for the UK Ministry of Defence, and a Director of Operations for Jacobs. Sharpe will be working closely with WFS’s existing management team during the transition period.

He said: “WFS has established itself as a major disruptor in the marketplace by developing game-changing technology which improves safety, increases operational flexibility, reduces costs and extends asset life. As the business enters another exciting new era, I look forward to working with the team to further build on the company’s success.

“Brendan Hyland remains a shareholder and a valued part of the business. The WFS team also remains deeply indebted to Brendan for his drive and energy in founding WFS and getting the company to where it is today.”
