Trakm8 makes key internal appointments to boost growth

Trakm8 has announced a number of organisational changes to allow it to take full advantage of the new products and expertise it gained following four acquisitions in the last three years.

The Group is streamlining its businesses into four discrete units: Trakm8 Fleet, Trakm8 Insurance, Trakm8 Optimisation and Trakm8 Automotive.

These businesses will form two commercial units, Fleet and Optimisation will headed up Colin Ferguson, former chief executive of Route Monkey which was acquired by the Group in December 2015.

Jon Law, who has been with the Group for four years as Trakm8 Limited’s sales director, has now become the managing director of Insurance and Automotive.

Supporting these key fleet roles are Andrew Tillman and Robert Goldwater, from Roadsense which the Group acquired in August 2016.

Goldwater will be fleet sales director and Tillman will be fleet strategy director responsible for Fleet Strategy and Group Marketing.

“We expect that these changes will lead to even greater vigour and success in each of our chosen verticals as each one will have dedicated and focussed resource deployed to them. Trakm8 has gone through a rapid period of growth and these carefully designed plans have come from an extended period of discussion with many stakeholders within our business. We expect to see positive results in the near future,” said John Watkins, executive chairman of Trakm8.

Streamlining the businesses will assist in simplifying current processes, ensuring the business stays focussed on maximising the opportunities that it develops. The Group believes that this restructure will ensure cross-selling prospects are fulfilled with accountability being clear to the business units.
