CMS expands commercial team

Collision Management Systems (CMS) has announced it will expand its commercial team to ‘better realise market demand’.

The company has announced the appointments of Jonathan Wool and Aaron James as business development managers and Frank Reynolds as head of marketing.

Charles Smith, chief executive officer at Collision Management Systems, said: “With this expansion to our commercial team, CMS is even better placed to deliver solutions for employee and driver risk management to large fleets, commercial insurers and technology partners.

“At the end of 2019 we passed 100,000 connections to our platform, with this expanded team, we will quickly power past 250,000 connections as we help more organisations around the world manage incidents and risk better and make the working world safer.”

In his new role, Wool leads the sales team with the responsibility for developing customers in the fleet and insurance markets.

Prior to joining the company, Wool worked for VUE Group, with a focus on fleet risk management. He has a background in financial services in fleet insurance, both underwriting and broking and launching 'pay as you go' fleet insurance products within the self-drive hire insurance sector.

Wool said: “It’s great to be part of CMS, bringing customers a market leading technology that is changing the way fleets and connected data driven businesses assess, manage and action risk.”

Aaron James joined the company in mid-December to lead the development of CMS customer, prospect and market insight platforms. Working in partnership with Wool, he leverages that insight to develop opportunities for the company’s risk management software as a service (SaaS) offering.

Before joining CMS, James worked on a car manufacturer accounts at a marketing agency and in business development roles at Suzuki.

James said: “I’m thrilled to work for such a fast-growing company with innovation at the heart of everything it does. CMS has so much to offer in the field of connected data management to help customers manage their risk better.

Completing the expansion, Frank Reynolds joins the team from a simulation and virtual-reality (VR) company, having previously worked at Europcar and Hertz.

Reynolds’ remit is to expand the footprint of CMS marketing, with focus on digital aspects.

Reynolds said: “CMS provides a revolutionary solution for connected data management and its application in risk management. It is very exciting to be taking that capability to a global marketplace.”
