Axis Fleet Management has announced the appointment of Jason King who will head up its Telemaxis division and develop new services to be launched in 2019.
After gaining IT qualifications in college, King (pictured) began his working life in vehicle sales, initially with Peugeot before joining George White Motorcycles.
He then moved into a senior role with business process outsourcing firm Capita, where he was responsible for developing and managing its IT environment.
He will now take responsibility for all aspects of Axis’s Telemaxis portal, designed to help customers manage their driver performance while reducing overheads and their environmental impact whilst optimising efficiency and retention.
Part of King’s remit is to further develop the support on offer, including the launch of new trailer tracking and mobile wheel alignment services to be rolled out in the New Year.
Axis’ managing director Leigh Goodland said: “Jason joins Axis with an ideal skills set which includes strong project management and IT capabilities as well as a wider understanding of the transport sector.
“He has a key role to play as we expand our Telemaxis offering to provide further support to customers through our new trailer tracking and wheel alignment services.”
