Fleet Operations appoints new chief information officer
Fleet Operations has appointed David Gallimore as chief information officer, bringing with him almost 20 years’ experience in the information technology and services industry.
David will be tasked with broadening the scope of services available to customers and ensuring IT systems are as efficient and innovative as possible, from vehicle ordering processes to data security.
Gallimore commented: “My experience developing, designing and managing IT products and making strategic operational decisions has given me key insight and understanding of the marketplace and its demands on technology, so I can help ensure Fleet Operations is developing ahead of the curve.
“Fleet Operations will continue to have its finger on the pulse and be at the frontier when it comes to the use of technology.”
Gallimore joins Fleet Operations from Zonal Retail Data Systems, where he was responsible for the strategic direction and operational delivery of the marketing technologies division.
He has enjoyed entrepreneurial success, having run his own digital marketing company TXD for 15 years, before successfully agreeing an acquisition by hospitality technology solutions specialist Zonal.
David has worked with Fleet Operations in the past and helped develop some of the firm’s IT systems. In his new role, he hopes to put all users, including drivers, at the heart of the company’s services and offerings.
Richard Hipkiss, managing director at Fleet Operations, said: “David joins us at an exciting time, as we prepare to launch innovative new systems, harnessing the power of analytics and automation to streamline processes, manage costs and support strategic, data-driven decisions. His appointment reinforces our commitment to develop innovative systems and applications in the fast-evolving fleet landscape.”
David’s appointment follows a successful year for business growth, with the company’s workforce growing by 15% over the past 12 months.
