Shining the spotlight on James Smart
How James Smart came to join SRL is pure coincidence. He was repairing devices in a computer store when Peter Almond, MD of SRL’s manufacturing division, visited to have his phone fixed. James and Peter got to know each other and, when an opportunity arose within SRL for a technical person to join SRL and repair equipment, Peter immediately invited James for an interview. The rest, as they say, is history.
James put his tech skills to good use and spent three years repairing SRL’s equipment and components before being approached by John Cleary, managing director of SRL’s Urban64 division, to help him launch our Urban64 product. Excited by the potential of the new product, James was delighted to accept the challenges on offer and went to work with John.

“It was really exciting to be there at the beginning of the Urban64 journey and the product has come a long way since Portsmouth,” says James. “A lot of refinements and optimisations were developed based on our experiences there and Urban64 has now been installed on over 300 sites, which is a terrific achievement.”
