VisionTrack, provider of connected vehicle cameras and video telematics, is targeting international growth with the appointment of Vernon Bonser as European Sales Director.
Building on the continuing success of the company, this latest move will enable VisionTrack to take advantage of business development opportunities in the UK and mainland Europe.
In this newly-created role, Bonser will use more than 20 years of experience within the telematics sector to develop an infrastructure to target both direct and indirect sales. This will include the creation of a network of European channel partners from within the fleet, vehicle tracking and insurance sectors. He will also work closely with existing and potential customers who are looking for advanced connected vehicle camera solutions.
Bonser joins VisionTrack from TomTom Telematics where he has spent the past eight years working in a number of senior sales roles. Most recently, he was Head of Corporate Business UK and ROI, where he was responsible for rapidly expanding TomTom Telematics’ corporate portfolio of clients, while negotiating several key strategic partnerships that resulted in additional revenue streams. Prior to joining TomTom Telematics, he held business development positions at Cybit, DA Systems, Bluecom Group and Tracker Networks.
Commenting on his appointment, Vernon Bonser said: “Connected vehicle camera solutions are transforming the fleet telematics marketplace, so I am excited to be joining the industry leader within this rapidly developing field. There is huge potential for video telematics, especially within mainland Europe, as recognition grows about the safety and financial benefits the technology can provide. I will use my current experience and relationships to take full advantage of the opportunities that exist.”
