Omnitracs Appoints Speicher Chief Technology Officer
Omnitracs has hired Dan Speicher as its chief technology officer, continuing the expansion of its executive team since Vista Equity Partners purchased the business from Qualcomm Inc. in November.
The announcement follows the truck technology provider’s appointment of David Post as its president and chief operating officer last month.
The San Diego-based company also named John Graham as CEO and Jordan Copland as chief financial officer back in November.
In his new role, Speicher will provide product vision and development strategy for all Omnitracs business units, the company said.
“I am very pleased to have the opportunity to leverage my years of information technology and telematics experience to support the company’s ongoing efforts to meet and exceed the expectations of our fleet customers,” Speicher said.
He previously worked at Hughes Telematics, where he led teams that developed telematics systems for Fortune 500 customers. He also led the company’s corporate integration efforts after Verizon purchased the business.
Prior to that, Speicher spent 20 years with data and marketing service provider InfoGroup, where he oversaw mergers and acquisitions and the development of shared services infrastructure.
He also served in the U.S. Air Force, where he flew on intelligence collection missions during the Cold War, Omnitracs said.
“Dan brings extensive technology expertise and extraordinary leadership skills to Omnitracs,” Graham said in the July 8 announcement. “His technical vision and strategic direction will be essential in ensuring we harness the best technology and business intelligence to deliver smart, hosted solutions that bring increased value and operational control to our customers.”
