Teletrac Navman appoints new company president

07 Oct 2019

Teletrac Navman, a provider of GPS tracking software and transport managing solutions, has appointed Dr Jens Meggers as president of the company.

Meggers brings more than 25 years of business and technology leadership to his role, in which he will drive the company’s strategic direction, ensure that products evolve, and champion artificial intelligence as a way of meeting customer needs.

“The transportation and construction sectors are at a pivotal time in their digital transformation,” comments Meggers.

“There is a substantial market opportunity ahead for Teletrac Navman to bring in the latest technology and intelligence to these organisations. Using an AI-first approach, we are doubling down on our product development to give our customers previously unachievable visibility and insight into their mobile assets.”

Meggers has experience leading both large scale enterprise companies and technology startups. Prior to joining Teletrac Navman, he was part of the leadership team at AI technology startup, Huddl.ai, which is based in Mountain View, California.

Meggers also previously served as Senior Vice President and General Manager for Cisco Corporation’s Cloud Collaboration business and held several senior executive positions at cybersecurity firm Symantec Corporation.

“The transportation and mobility markets represent huge opportunities, which is why we’re putting significant investments in the company and bringing on a phenomenal leader who will continue to help Teletrac Navman push this industry forward,” explains Gilbarco Veeder-Root senior vice president Martin Gafinowitz.

“Jens’ extensive product background will be key as Teletrac Navman continues to expand its product footprint and innovate. His proven ability to understand market needs and lead a team to develop technology solutions ahead of the curve will be a tremendous advantage to the company and its customers.”

Teletrac Navman began life in 1986 as ‘Talon Technology’ in Auckland, New Zealand. Since then it has grown to service to more than 40,000 organisations worldwide.

Teletrac Navman is headquartered in Glenview, Illinois, United States, with additional offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico.
