THE fleet management technology provider, DRIVE Software Solutions, has appointed Stephen Doran to its board as a Non-Executive Director.
Doran is an experienced C-level executive, specialising in fleet and technology services and providing innovative and disruptive business models and services.
He bolsters the new management team established last year. This comprises Richard Parris (Chairman and CEO), Robert Gorby (Chief Commercial Officer) and Simon West-Oliver (Strategic Partnerships Director).
DRIVE Software Solutions says it has generated revenue growth of more than 30% year on year following the company reorganisation, while trebling numbers under its ODO fleet management platform.
Doran has been involved in vehicle management and telematics since creating the programme for Norwich Union/ Aviva that led to the development of pay-as-you-drive insurance for young drivers.
He went on to lead and grow Tracker limited, the vehicle security company owned at the time by Direct Line Group and oversaw the sale of the business in 2014. In 2015, he built Ecofleet, a fleet management company based in Estonia, to around 100,000 vehicles under management before selling the business in 2018.
Commenting on his new role, Doran said:
“This is an exciting time for the business. I am looking forward to working with the team to accelerate growth even further as we broaden our routes to market and deliver innovative solutions in areas such as EV transition management and Mobility as a Service.”
