Davey was the head of operations for Cirrus from 2002 and became head of the business from 2007 to 2009.
The Peverel / Cirrus price-fixing scandal involved cheating pensioners at 65 sites by installing Cirrus equipment through bogus tendering. The scam took place between 2005 to 2009, according to the Office of Fair Trading.
A statement from Knight Square, which owns Peverel / FirstPort, says:
“Andy will use his considerable experience in the technology sector to build on Appello’s first-class reputation as the UK’s largest emergency monitoring centre and a leader in designing, installing and maintaining telecare, fire safety and security products. Andy will also continue to drive Appello’s expansion into developing new products and services that support people’s health and wellbeing.”
Janet Entwistle, the Peverel group CEO, has expressed her confidence in Davey to Carlex. She said in February 2014 that “no member of Peverel staff involved directly in the collusive tendering scheme was still employed by Peverel”.
