Networkcar, a provider of wireless vehicle management, announced Wednesday, April 11, that it has appointed Keith Schneider to the position of president. Schneider has extensive experience in leading and building businesses in the wireless industry; most recently, he served as vice president of indirect distribution for Sprint Nextel Communications.
