CMS expands commercial team

Collision Management Systems (CMS), a connected vehicle data specialist that works with insurers, fleets and remote worker organisations to reduce employee risk, has made two new appointments to its team to meet growing demand for its SaaS-based risk management and cost-saving solutions.

L-R: Aaron James, Jonathan Wool and Frank Reynolds

The changes see Jonathan Wool and Aaron James join as business development managers and Frank Reynolds as head of marketing.

Jonathan Wool leads the sales team at CMS with responsibility for developing customers in the fleet and insurance markets. He previously worked for VUE Group with a focus on fleet risk management and also has a financial services background including fleet insurance, both underwriting and broking and his launch of PAYG fleet insurance products in the self-drive hire insurance sector.

Wool commented: “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 has joined the company to lead the development of CMS’ customer, prospect and market insight platforms. Working in partnership with Wool, he now leverages that insight to develop opportunities for CMS’ risk management SaaS offering. James previously worked on leading car manufacturer accounts at a marketing agency and in business development roles at Suzuki.

“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,” he said.

Completing this expansion, Frank Reynolds joins from a simulation and VR specialist, having previously worked at Europcar and Hertz.

Reynolds’ remit is to expand the footprint of CMS’ marketing, with focus on digital aspects, as the company expands both domestically and internationally.

Commenting on this, 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.”

Charles Smith, CEO at CMS, commented: “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.”
