Meet the Team
The RoadPixel Team are specialist providers of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) solutions. At heart we are a technology business that has a team of approachable technical experts who understand ANPR and, more importantly its business applications.
Frank Thomson, CEO
Frank’s touch and input extends to all aspects of our business but right now he is particularly focused on business growth activities. His remit covers commercial and legal contracts, strategy, UK and International partner development. Frank & Lawson founded their previous highly successful ANPR business which they sold to a US public company some years ago. RoadPixel was founded in 2012 and is growing steadily supplying systems to many significant clients. He believes in very high standards of customer care and openness and likes to be regarded as fair and reasonable. Frank describes himself as a ‘technology pragmatist’ as he has a passion for good technology that is well made, reliable and easy to use (as opposed to technology that doesn’t quite live up to expectations). He likes the outdoor life and is a keen walker and skier. Email Frank

With a vast array of technical knowhow and experience, Lawson is at the forefront of technology and always looking for a way to improve products and bring new features and benefits to customers.

More recently Lawson and Frank formed their previous ANPR business and grew the company for 12 years before selling it off to a US public company. Lawson describes himself as a technology trawler, extracting ideas from emerging sciences and transforming these into profit generating tools for parking and security applications. Email Lawson
