CHICAGO, March 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- FourKites, Inc., the market leader in cloud-based supply chain visibility and real-time tracking, has announced that Dave Walker has joined the company as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).
With over 25 years of experience, Dave has been an integral part of the senior management team at multiple early-stage SaaS and software startups, many of which he helped guide through IPOs and acquisitions. Most recently Dave was VP of North American Sales at Trusteer, acquired by IBM in 2013.
As CRO of FourKites, Dave will be responsible for building a global sales organization with a scalable revenue generation model and systems that can accommodate the rapidly growing sales team and service offerings. While leading the company through expanding stages of growth, Dave will be creating and monitoring goals, revenue strategy, and channel partnerships.
"I'm excited to be part of such an experienced team whose mission aligns with my experience: we are addressing the critical and strategic gaps in the transportation and supply chain industries, namely supply chain visibility via real-time tracking for shippers, 3PLs, brokers, and carriers who need to know the locations of all of their freight," said Dave.
"Dave has an outstanding history of creating and executing strong revenue, sales, and financial goals for the companies he has worked with in the past. Dave's breadth of experience in building high power sales organizations at SaaS startups positions him as the absolute best person to execute the growth strategy that our investors and I have set," said Mathew Elenjickal, CEO of FourKites.
FourKites' mission is to reshape the logistics industry into one that's defined by transparency and efficiency. FourKites provides comprehensive real-time tracking and supply chain visibility solutions across transportation modes and digital platforms. Using FourKites, the shipper, the broker, and the carrier can share the same, real-time truck location and shipment status information - from more than 35 onboard GPS/ELD systems used by fleets to individual owner-operator smartphones and flip phones.
