ERoad has appointed Akinyemi Koyi as president of its North American operations, the transportation technology company said.

Koyi is serving a dual role as he will continue as the chief innovation officer. But in his new position he will be tasked with driving product innovation and adoption. He will also work to accelerate the operational footprint of the company throughout the United States and Canada.

The company made the announcement April 20.



“The future of transportation is being disrupted by massive connectivity, automation, and augmentation challenges and opportunities,” Koyi said. “With that, ERoad strives to push our technology even further as we assist customers through these disruptions and help them seize the opportunities presented by AI and machine learning in improving safety and optimizing performance.”

Koyi has more than two decades of experience in the technology and innovation space. He formerly worked as the chief operating officer at Coretex. When ERoad acquired the company last year he stayed on as chief innovation officer.

“A new fiscal year brings the opportunity for growth, and we’ve taken this time to reflect and dive further into unique opportunities and challenges in the North American market,” ERoad CEO Mark Heine said. “We know that AK fits this role and these needs flawlessly and will continue to keep innovation at the forefront of everything we do at ERoad.” — Transport Topics
