I like that idea. Though I would personally go for something more along the
lines of "The People Involved" or similar. In my opinion, the layout is
currently not optimal, since it contains a lot of info on one page.

I would therefore suggest to get some kind of subdivision into that, maybe
by area of activity, if that is possible. If not, there is always the
possibility to have a list of names (with maybe a very short enumeration of
things that person is involved with) which link to the complete profile.
That would most likely scale better in case more people get listed on that

I agree. Maybe renaming the navigation bar link from "Profiles" to "People"
would help making it more obvious that this is where you can find
information about the people involved. The first time I saw that link, I
was not exactly sure what to expect behind it.
