CLS, LLC, a technology consulting group for the transportation industry, announced that it has named David Ladner as executive director and partner.
“As CLS, LLC expands its lead in the transportation technology consulting space, we are committed to bringing top talent to the group, and providing our clients with the most intelligent, experienced talent in the market,” said Christian Schenk, president. “David’s background and experience makes him the perfect person to partner with in this new and exciting venture. With extensive experience in both the transportation and wireless industries, he brings exactly the right knowledge and expertise that our clients want and need.”
Ladner brings more than 20 years of experience in transportation and wireless technology to his new role. Before joining the company, he founded PeopleNet Communications Corporation, the second-largest onboard computing provider in the transportation industry.
David also worked for Genesys Software Systems in a turn-around capacity, with the primary objective of creating a future liquidity event. David was instrumental in accomplishing this goal which resulted in Genesys merging with publicly traded Salary.com in the end of 2008.
Most recently David co-founded and served as chairman and CEO of RTT Mobile Interpretation. At RTT, David planned, built and launched the nation’s first wireless mobile interpretation platform. He took the company from a blank slate concept to a high-growth, recurring revenue model and end-to-end service delivery platform.
Ladner remains involved in the wireless communications arena currently as chairman of the board at Predictive Weather, Inc.
“CLS LLC is in a leading position within the transportation technology marketplace, and has successfully defined and rapidly grown an entirely new category of consulting services,” said Ladner. “I am excited to help lead such an innovative and transformational company, with such incredible potential for growth.”
