Chairman & Chief Executive Officer
For over 30 years, Dr. Martin Moore-Ede has been a leading expert on managing human performance and the risks of human fatigue in transportation and industrial businesses that operate 24/7. After experiencing the challenges of fatigue as a surgeon-in-training required to work 36-hour shifts, Dr. Moore-Ede was one of the first to define the challenges of living, working and sleeping in a 24 hour a day, 7-day a week world. As a professor at Harvard Medical School (1975 – 1998), he led the team that located the biological clock in the human brain that controls the timing of sleep and wake, and pioneered research on how the human body can safely adapt to working around the clock and sustain optimum physical and mental performance.
