DriveTech has appointed of Leo Taylor as head of product solutions.

After working for both Alphabet and BMW, he joins DriveTech, bringing experience from previous roles such as business development, sales strategy, new product introductions and product management both in the UK and internationally.

DriveTech’s new recruit, Taylor, said: “Joining DriveTech at the beginning of a new decade is pertinent.

“The driver training sector has been quite traditionally based, but 2020 and beyond presents some great opportunities to innovate, build on our market-leading position as part of the AA, develop new quality training and compliance services, and to help further improve road safety for our clients and society as a whole.”

Nick Butler, fleet director at DriveTech, said: “Leo is an extremely talented product expert who is a key appointment to the DriveTech business.

“Innovation, as well as a greater emphasis on technological solutions, will be at the heart of our proposition.”

Recently, DriveTech joined the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) as a gold corporate member.

CILT promotes the status of the profession through the education, training and development.The company, part of the AA, helps fleets reduce their road risk, helping prevent road deaths and serious collisions, saving money, reputations and lives.

DriveTech has trading relationships with a number of blue-chip clients in the logistics and transport arena and therefore this association is going to be beneficial to further improve driver and road safety standards, it said.

As well as providing driver risk management and driver training services, it is a provider of police diversionary training courses working with 34 police forces across the country.

The company was founded in 1990 and promotes “working together to eliminate road death and serious injury”.

Late last year, DriveTech appointed Emma Loveday to the role of new business development manager in the commercial fleet business area.
