Fleet software firm Epyx has appointed Charlie Brooks as its new strategy director.
Brooks's role will mainly focus on Epyx, but will also include assisting at sister company R2C Online and parent company Fleetcor.
He has joined from Achilles Information, where he was global operations and strategy director, and he was previously a strategy consultant at KPMG UK.
Brooks said: "This is a transformational and exciting moment in the motor industry with change driven by everything from electric vehicles and connected cars to potentially dramatic shifts in mobility and how and where we work.
"As yet, it is unclear exactly how all of these trends will affect business travel and transportation but it is clear that change is happening, perhaps at a fundamental level. Businesses need to develop an understanding and adapt.
"Epyx has a track record of being a forward-looking organisation that embraces change and I'm very much looking forward to supporting the company and its customer base through their next chapter of success."
Epyx managing director Aditya Varadpande said: "I am very pleased to welcome Charlie to the senior leadership team at Epyx. Last year, Epyx celebrated its 20th birthday but it is clear that the next two decades will be very different from what has come before.
"Developing the right strategic approach is essential and having someone like Charlie as part of team is important to meeting the future with confidence. I look forward to working with Charlie and with our customers to shape the future agenda at Epyx."
