Allevate Appoints Non-Executive Director and Welcomes Senior Associates 1


Appointment of a non-executive director and highly reputable associates further enhances Allevate’s ability to support law-enforcement to combat organised crime, fight terrorism and enhance public order whilst improving operational efficiency.


London, UK, 21st October 2013: Allevate today announced the appointment of a non-executive director and broadens its team through the addition of two senior associates that are highly regarded by industry and the public sector alike. These additions enhance our strong understanding of biometric technology and its practical application in critical infrastructure as well as add operational knowledge of business change management within the context of large government programmes.

Allevate, through its partnership with US-based Tygart Technology, offers the MXSERVER automated media analysis and exploitation system. This server-based and cloud-architected system enables forensic investigators to process an order of magnitude more digital media, comprising both video and photo collections. It quickly transforms media extracted from online sources, captured computers, mobile phones, flash cards and video surveillance systems into searchable resources.

Assuming a non-executive directorship with responsibility for governance, compliance and strategic business planning oversight is Gerard Citroen. Carl Gohringer, founder and managing director of Allevate, says “Gerard’s greater than 25 years’ experience in several large B2B companies in complex high technology environments will make him absolutely instrumental in our strategic corporate planning activities.”

Also supporting Allevate’s client and project focused activities henceforth shall be Mike Franklin and Peter Wales who bring decades of major UK government biometric project experience to our clients. Gohringer continues “Peter’s experience in aiding UK government with cost-benefit analysis and business case formation and Mike’s hands on experience with public sector biometric implementations and large-system architectures will ensure successful deployments of MXSERVER with our clients. The involvement of such reputable industry experts is further testament to the powerful benefits provided by MXSERVER and its applicability to our clients’ requirements.”

Tygart’s MXSERVER is already widely deployed with multiple US Department of Defense customers and is made available by Allevate on the UK G-Cloud Cloudstore. Cloudstore is open to all UK public sector clients and is designed to provide a simple streamlined process for buying ICT focused products and services as a commodity from the catalogue without having to invite competitive tenders from suppliers.
