His expertise complements that of our founders and executive team members, Duncan Pauly and Paul McCafferty, and they collectively provide the leadership we need to scale product and service delivery in response to increased demand.”

Prior to joining CopperEye, Mr. Helps was the Enterprise Architect for SunGard Public Sector, shaping solutions for the UK emergency services and Criminal Justice. He was the Director of Architecture and Design for '3', with overall responsibility for end-to-end IT solutions for the UK launch. He also chaired the '3' global architecture group before founding Wiser Consulting, a 3G consulting practice, responsible for assisting a number of European telecommunication organizations develop their 3G solutions. As an independent consultant, Mr. Helps also assisted the definition and launch of Virgin Mobile and Orange. Mr. Helps actively participates in a number of industry working parties, shaping ongoing standards and future technology direction.
