Telematics firm Lightfoot has appointed a new head of sales.
The firm says Kevin Hennelly brings with him nearly a decade of experience implementing hundreds of telematics contracts spanning more than 24,000 vehicle units in a broad range of public and private sectors, including government, utilities, charities, construction, facilities and social housing.
In his new role, Hennelly will work closely with Lightfoot's national sales team and oversee its growth.
He said: "Telematics systems are great and offer a wealth of information, but beyond a limited deterrent effect, they only raise awareness of problems as opposed to actually solving them.
"Lightfoot has a totally different approach, solving issues at source, using real-time visual and audio alerts that deliver tangible results in terms of more efficient, more cost effective and safer drivers.
"Lightfoot is a game changer and I wanted to be part of it."
Rupert Lyon Taylor, managing director of Lightfoot's fleet division, said: ""Kevin has spent the last eight years working in the telematics industry and, in this time, he has sold at every level.
"He has won and managed major accounts and many of his clients have been household names.
"It's an exciting time for our business and we're confident that Kevin will play a big part in our future growth as well as expanding our rapidly growing team."
