Telematics firm Visiontrack has appointed Richard Kent as its new vice president of global sales.

In his new role, Kent will be tasked with helping to grow the business internationally, and building on its UK market position. 

The company is aiming to further increase its global footprint this year, having launched a new US operation last year.

Kent brings more than 20 years of experience to his new role, having most recently been enterprise accounts director for Trimble for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Visiontrack commercial director Richard Lane said: “Despite a challenging 12 months, we have achieved significant growth in the UK, US and globally, with comprehensive plans for further expansion and product innovations in 2022. 

“Richard will be a fantastic addition to our team, and we look forward to him making a strong contribution to our international ambitions this year.”
