Cadec Global Inc., a provider of fleet management solutions, announced that transportation industry veteran Pete Allen has joined the company as chief executive officer. Allen previously was senior vice president of global sales at telematics company inthinc. He alsol has served in senior executive roles at GreenRoad Technologies (formerly Drive Diagnostics) and Xata Corp., now XRS Corp. Earlier in his career, Allen was a sales manager with Cadec.
As Cadec’s CEO, Allen is responsible for all areas of operation, and for furthering the progress the company has made over the past year in terms of enterprise-class product development and customer satisfaction since being acquired by investment firm BlackBern Partners. Jon Bernstein, previously CEO and chairman of Cadec, becomes executive chairman and will remain active in managing the company.
“Over the past year, we have transformed Cadec’s business in nearly all areas and put the company on a course for continued growth and success,” said Bernstein. “What drew BlackBern to Cadec initially were its outstanding core technology architecture and loyal customer base. We’ve since built a strong business around that core architecture by completing and delivering much-anticipated new features, rebuilding the user interface and developing a new hardware roadmap leveraging the latest technologies. We also overhauled customer support in order to provide better and faster service to our valued customers.”
Bernstein said that at this juncture for Cadec, the board decided it was time to bring in a fleet management industry expert to help bring the business forward. “We feel extremely fortunate to have hired Pete, who has lived and breathed transportation technology throughout his career, so he has a deep understanding of the needs of our customers and the markets we serve,” Bernstein said.
