Abax appoints chief technology officer

Paul Walsh has joined Abax as chief technology officer as the firm continues to drive plans to become the leading provider in the connected tech industry.

(L-R) Paul Walsh, CTO at ABAX, with COO Bjørn Erik Helgeland

Walsh brings more than 15 years in the telematics industry, ranging from start-ups to Fleetmatics, which was sold to US telecom giant Verizon in 2016 for $2.4bn following its IPO in 2012, and has also spent time working as a consultant for Abax.

Commenting on his plans, Walsh said: “My vision, for the technology section, is to produce a world-class product used on a global scale solving real problems for real people. I believe we already have a very strong team across the Product Development department, which is obviously a great position to be starting from. I’m under no illusions of the task in front of us – we’ve got some big challenges to overcome.

“I do expect us to be a global leader in the B2B tech industry and I’m confident our main product will be built around the connected workspace.”
