Meet the CaddyCheck® team
Tom SymonsManaging Director
Tom Symons is an experienced Senior Executive with extensive Sales and Business Development experience in the retail market. Tom started out in the Retail focused CCTV company but quickly expanded to Electronic Article Surveillance following its acquisition by Checkpoint Systems, a Philadelphia based company, then a global leader in the EAS Market. As Checkpoint expanded into Apparel Labeling and Merchandise Availability (RFID), Tom was asked to take on the role of Business Development Manager for Source tagging, first in Benelux and then in Europe.
In 2008, Tom decided to start up his own company and Profit Protection Services (PPS) was incorporated. PPS initially focused on helping retailers protect their profits by providing them with high quality, innovative, yet cost-effective solutions. However, he soon realized that there were a number of issues for which there were no readily available off-the-shelf solutions.
One of those issues was highlighted to him during discussions with a Belgian food retailer who pointed out the losses they were suffering due to items being left in or under the shopping trolley. Following extensive research and development CaddyCheck® was born.
