SAN DIEGO, March 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Netradyne, a leader in artificial intelligence (AI) technology focusing on driver and fleet safety, today announced the appointment of Dale Willis as vice president of data services and insurance. Willis comes to Netradyne with an extensive background in both the automotive technology and insurance industries and plans to help advance Netradyne's service offerings by leveraging the company's robust data offerings as a means to help insurance companies better understand the roads drivers use every day.
Netradyne's advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies are creating deep driver, vehicle and environmental analysis; yielding unique opportunities to create efficiencies in risk identification, data trend analysis and timely payment of insurance claims. Their robust commercial fleet platform currently captures and analyzes several million driving miles each month and Willis' expertise will allow the company to turn this insightful data into comprehensive offerings insurance companies can use to underwrite and analyze professional drivers across the country. In parallel, Willis will support customers who are actively reducing fleet risk by managing relationships with insurance carriers to provide evidence of improvement. He will also foster relationships with captive program managers to help drive fleet sales growth.
"Netradyne is experiencing explosive growth, with new avenues and uses for our technology approach coming to life every day. With this comes a key focus on investing in top talent with expertise in these new industries. Adding Dale to our executive team is a crucial next step in continuing to scale the company," said Sandeep Pandya, president of Netradyne. "We are confident that he will help to lead this company into a new future, increasing our focus on data and insurance industries in addition to our core fleet product, and we look forward to leveraging Willis' unique ability to build a customer-centric organization and uncover new valuable product offerings."
Willis' keen business acumen will enable him to provide critical strategic counsel to the executive team and he looks forward to nurturing customer engagement by leveraging his strong fleet operations and technology background, knowledge in market research and skills in building strong client relationships. Willis brings 20 plus years of experience in the automotive and insurance industries. He previously held executive and management positions at Peak Telematics, Fleetmatics, National Interstate Insurance Company, Progressive Insurance and Navistar International Corporation, making him the perfect candidate for this new role.
"I am pleased to start the next chapter of my career with such an innovative and disruptive company in the technology space," said Willis. "The Netradyne team has a true passion for reducing risk and advancing AI and I look forward to assisting customers who have reaped the benefits of improved safety by highlighting these efforts to their insurance providers. I am also eager to help introduce the company's valuable technology to new customers and partners who have yet to experience the power of vision and AI."
