DRIVE Software Solutions (“DRIVE”), a leading provider of fleet management technology, is pleased to announce that Stephen Doran has joined its board as non-executive director. This appointment comes after a very successful first year for the business under new management, during which time DRIVE has generated revenue growth of over 30% year on year. In the same period, vehicle numbers on the ODO Fleet Management platform have more than trebled as the business accelerates traction amongst brokers, dealers, lease and rental companies.
Stephen has been involved in vehicle management and telematics since creating the programme for Norwich Union/ Aviva that led to the development of pay-as-you-drive insurance for young drivers. He went on to lead and grow Tracker limited, the vehicle security Company owned at the time by Direct Line Group and oversaw the sale of the business in 2014. In 2015, he built Ecofleet, a fleet management Company based in Estonia, to around 100,000 vehicles under management before selling the business in 2018.
