Erbel comes most recently from FLSmidth, with a career spanning several years across multiple functions, including senior project management and a global purchasing role. CheckProof has seen strong, continual growth in Germany and appointing Erbel is in line with CheckProof's desire to provide exceptional customer support for existing clients while driving new growth across Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. It is also in line with expanding the company's global footprint after opening offices in the UK.

CheckProof was founded in response to a critical need for Heavy Industries to move away from pen and paper and digitise their processes for operational efficiency and regulatory compliance. CheckProof's platform connects frontline staff with the office through digital tools such as customised checklists, reporting tools for incidents and deviations and resource planning. The industries CheckProof serves often have high sustainable growth targets. Hence, managing assets and equipment and the ability to see data-driven reports of the efficiencies achieved are key – all the while ensuring the safety of personnel working on-site.

Today, CheckProof serves clients in 38 countries, and the decision to enter the German market reflects the company's commitment to delivering unparalleled services to customers in the region. CheckProof has historically recruited staff from the industry it serves, and Erbel is no exception. His experience in the industry positions him as the ideal ambassador for CheckProof's products and services.

Håkan Holmgren, CEO of CheckProof, said: "Peter's profound understanding of the industry where our clients operate aligns perfectly with our growth objectives. We believe this new hire reflects our dedication to better serve customers in this region while enhancing the overall customer experience."

Erbel's appointment comes at a crucial time for CheckProof, as it executes aggressive growth plans in response to increasing demand to digitise the heavy industry sector. His role will involve overseeing CheckProof's operations in Germany and fostering strong relationships with key partners.

"I am honoured to join CheckProof and lead the charge in introducing our exceptional products to the German market," said Erbel. "CheckProof's commitment to excellence and innovation is truly commendable, and I am excited to contribute to the company's success in this new chapter of expansion."
