Webeye appoint two new strategic members of staff to head the department and scale-up the phenomenal global growth of the webeye CMS cloud platform

12 Jan 2016

Webeye appoint two new strategic members of staff to head the department and scale-up the already phenomenal global growth of the webeyecms cloud platform. Dr Tom Ridge as Chief Technical Adviser and Mr Anthony Chambers as Senior Technical and Systems Architect

Tom and Anthony bring a wealth of experience from industry and academia. They have an interest in building dependable, scalable systems based on strong underlying theory. They share webeye’s belief in providing the most reliable and robust cloud based security software, are excited by the global potential of the product and have the knowledge and talent to realise it!

Tom is currently a Senior Lecturer at the University of Leicester. Educated in Mathematics at Trinity College Cambridge and holds a PhD from Edinburgh University. He worked in the City of London for several investment banks and various internet startups before returning to academia focusing on mathematical techniques applied to software. Anthony has extensive process and project management experience within industry responsible for the design, implementation and maintenance of complicated platforms that utilise many different computer technologies.


They are joining at a very exciting moment in the development of the company. Together they have the breadth of relevant experience to develop and manage webeye’s global reach. Tom and Anthony will be directly responsible for the scalability and reliability challenges arising from our particular cloud-based alarm platform, making sure it is able to service the thousands and potentially millions of devices simultaneously but also maintain the system 24/7. Anthony will manage the research and development department on a daily basis and with his team of developers and programmers will be launching yet more exciting products and enhancements over the coming months. Tom will over-see the whole department and have overall responsibility for the strategic technological development of the webeye platform and it’s products and services. With his close connections to Leicester University and in particular their research into ‘intelligent’ technologies he is aiming to incorporate the relevant technology into webeye to enhance the platform. 



“We have reached a critical juncture within the company. There is much excitement for a technological solution to meet the increasing demands within the security industry and webeye is perfectly poised to meet these challenges. We could have either consolidated our existing gains or invested to reach the full global potential of our cloud-based platform. The appointment Tom and Anthony now gives us the opportunity to fully exploit the latter and we look forward to a fruitful working future”

Clive Mason, Managing Director, Webeye Limited.



“I have known Clive and other members of the company for many years, and am delighted that they have chosen me to be part of their team. Although my academic work has focused on real-world

systems, and I have previously worked in industry, I am particularly excited to be working with webeye. I am impressed by the system that is already in widespread use but that has also considerable potential for further growth.”

Dr Tom Ridge



“I thrive on the the design, implementation and maintenance of complicated platforms and welcome the opportunity to be working on such an exciting project as webeye. I’m not interested in ‘easy’ and relish the challenge of providing products and services that improve the security and safety of people’s lives and property”

Anthony Chambers



The appointment of these talented individuals is part of the extensive growth plans of Webeye Limited.

Along with other appointments earlier in the year it puts the company in a strong position to expand into the global market place and consolidate it's position as the world’s ‘Best Cloud Security Software’
