25 February 2021
Author: Sean Keywood
Stephen Doran has joined the board of Drive Software Solutions as non-executive director.
Doran joins on the back of a 35-year career, mainly in senior and executive positions in technology companies.
He has been involved in vehicle management and telematics since creating the Norwich Union/Aviva pay-as-you-drive insurance programme, and then led vehicle security company Tracker.
He also formerly led fleet management company Ecofleet, before selling the business in 2018.
Drive has seen revenue growth of more than 30% year-on-year, and seen the number of vehicles on its Odo platform more than treble in that time, following the establishment of a new management team.
Doran said: "This is an exciting time for the business. I am looking forward to working with the team to accelerate growth even further as we broaden our routes to market and deliver innovative solutions in areas such as EV transition management and mobility-as-a-service."
Drive chairman and CEO Richard Parris said: "Stephen brings a wealth of innovative technology and fleet experience with him to the Drive team.
"His skillset and knowledge, coupled with the strong backing of Viva Investment Partners and the phenomenal momentum the new management team has already generated, gives us great belief in our ability to shape the future of the dynamic and evolving mobility sector."
