Trimble Transportation has promoted three executives to new leadership positions. The change is designed to promote collaboration and synergy across the division, the company announced.

Mark Botticelli has served as executive vice president and CTO at PeopleNet and will become the new chief technology officer of Trimble Transportation. Keith Mader, formerly the senior vice president of Enterprise Architecture at TMW Systems, becomes vice president of analytics for Trimble’s Transportation division. Trent Lezer, co-founder of Trimble’s Vusion business, will assume the role of senior vice president of Technology at PeopleNet.

“As Trimble Transportation continues to grow, these appointments will help create operational efficiencies to allow for the faster development of leading-edge solutions that support the needs of our diverse customer base,” said Thomas Fansler, president, Trimble Transportation Mobility.

Botticelli joined Trimble in 2005 and later became CTO of PeopleNet, where he oversaw the development of the company’s Connected Fleet, Video Intelligence, and Connected Gateway platforms.

Mader has worked at TMW for nearly 20 years and led efforts to globalize the TMWSuite product line and oversaw the first TMW application as a service offering. During his time at TMW, Mader established a professional product management practice across multiple lines of business and recently formalized the product architecture function.

As co-founder of Vusion, Lezer managed technology operations and development of analytical products that fleets used to improve fuel economy, make smarter business decisions, and automate tax and electronic log reporting.

“Each of them will play an integral part in supporting Trimble’s vision to better connect all parts of transportation, giving our customers the ability to make more informed decisions and improve performance in all aspects of their business,” said Bryn Fosburgh, senior vice president of Trimble.
