Peter Flynn

Peter is a great leader, a systems specialist and for a number of years has been an advocate and pioneer of software as a service. His ability to envision a new thing is surpassed only by his ability to plan and execute it. He’s adept at using web-based technologies to make organisations run more smoothly and efficiently and he has translated this skill into the domain of EHS regulation in the conception and execution of Libryo.

After co-founding a web development company (White Wall Web) in 2003, and several other web-based technology companies since, Peter now focuses his efforts on building the business and technology products of Libryo. Peter has received several accolades as an entrepreneur and technologist, including being featured on the Old Mutual “Doing Great Things” project (2011), Cape Town IT Initiative’s (CITI) “IT Super Heroes” feature and was profiled in the 2011 Edition of Mail and Guardian’s “200 Young South Africans.”

Peter holds two degrees, a BA (English) from the University of Cape Town and a BTech (Public Relations Management) from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. He’s married to Kamesh and has two awesome sons.

Garth Watson

Garth is passionate about how law-tech can be used to help corporations and funds to manage their ESG obligations optimally. He believes it is possible for companies to prosper and increase sustainable profit through the internalisation of costs often externalised to the environment and social elements. Garth has a firm sense for what’s over the next hill and he cannot wait to get there.

Before studying law at the University of Cape Town (UCT), Garth completed a Bachelor of Science with specialisation fields in Environmental and Geographical Science and Ecology (also at UCT). After this, Garth spent nearly 10 years practising corporate and commercial law at Gunstons Attorneys and gained valuable experience in the fields of corporate governance and private equity transactions. During this time, Garth developed an excellent feel for what works in the legal profession, as well as the areas where technology should play a more prominent role.

During this time too, ESG factors started to make their way into the mainstream, certainly insofar as the investment community is concerned. As a result Garth has been able to “marry” his passion and knowledge of environmental and social science with his experience in corporate governance and corporate transactions.

For an ex-practising lawyer he’s not bad at jamming with the tech guys and he genuinely believes that Libryo can help make the world a better place as more and more companies, funds and underwriters use it to know and meet their ESG obligations, while integrating them into integrated management systems.

Garth is currently based in Oxford. He is married to Lauren and is a keen cyclist.
