Drive Software Solutions announces new senior appointments

Date: 01 July 2022   |   Author: Sean Keywood

New board and executive appointments have been announced by fleet management platform provider Drive Software Solutions.

Scott Fulton has been named as chairman, Khasha Mekanik as global head of business development, and Tim Shields as chief technology officer.

Fulton is co-chief investment officer of VIP, and will work with VIP CEO Julie Meyer, who led VIP's acquisition of Drive in 2019, the subsequent repositioning of the firm towards EV's, mobility and Europe.

Mekanik, an experienced technology investor and entrepreneur, has led a number of investment funds, and will work alongside chief commercial officer Rob Gorby.

Shields has worked in the financial services, security, and enterprise SAAS ecosystems for over 20 years, starting his career at Logica PLC before taking technology leadership roles with Money Dashboard, Vehnet, Trendzer, and RSTO. He will be working with Dave Pegg, Drive's director of technology and architecture.

Meyer said: "The global automotive industry is changing, and changing rapidly. As a result, Drive is facing a plethora of opportunities to grow and develop. 

"Utilizing the high regard in which Drive is held, the management team's mandate is profitable growth from a wider base. It will achieve this through a combination of an improved financial structure, a broader geographic footprint, and further applications which address real-world challenges. 

"Drive is growing fast, and it will require further professional resource to ensure that all appropriate opportunities are captured successfully."
