Woking, Surrey 14th February 2012 – Gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets are pleased to announce the appointment of Andy Hird as their new Managing Director.

Now in his tenth year with the company, Andy started as Professional Services Manager, adding the Software Development portfolio in 2009. During that time he has been recognised as driving forward the high standards that has earned Aligned Assets the reputation as the ‘go to company’ for anyone looking for gazetteer or address management software and services.

Andy gained a Degree in Geography from Middlesex University in 1997 and subsequently spent over five years working at a large Local Authority, joining Aligned Assets in 2003. He has been responsible for bringing the consultancy, support, development and testing teams together into one department, which has seen a higher level of integrated working, the result of which has been a far greater responsiveness to customer requirements.

The company, who provides gazetteer management systems into over 100 public sector organisations, including local authorities, police forces, and fire and rescue services, has seen considerable growth over the last few years and are at the forefront of developing intuitive software solutions for use with the Ordnance Survey’s AddressBase products.

Speaking of his appointment, Andy said, “I’m delighted to have been given this opportunity and am excited about the future. Aligned Assets have always taken a customer first approach to the business and this will remain a core element moving forward.”

Outgoing Managing Director, Dinesh Thanigasalam said, “Andy has extensive hands-on experience and insight into the needs of the public sector. These facets, combined with his natural leadership and intuitive organisation skills, make him the ideal candidate to take over the reins at Aligned Assets.”

They supply software across the public and private sectors including over 100 Local Authorities, Fire & Rescue Services and Police Forces. In addition to software and data solutions, they offer a complete range of consultancy, training, bespoke development and project management.
