Tim Meadows has moved to fleet and workshop software specialist r2c Online as managing director.
His appointment comes after the business was acquired in April 2019 by Fleetcor Technologies Inc and sees him succeed Nick Walls, who founded the company in 2003.
Meadows joins from fellow Fleetcor company epyx, where he served as vice president and commercial director, and brings more than 25 years in the fleet sector, having held senior positions at LeasePlan, Lombard and Custom Fleet.
Meadows said: “r2c Online is, we believe, the de-facto standard SaaS platform in the UK for commercial vehicle compliance and maintenance across fleet operators, fleet management providers, workshops and manufacturers. My aim is to build on that position, enhancing and growing the business, using both its existing resources and those now available across Fleetcor.
“Especially, in the new normal, fleets are looking to their technology providers to deliver new ideas, benefits and innovations to help them cope with the unexpected conditions they now face. We’ll be working to meet some of those needs by remaining close to our customer base and continuing to innovate real solutions for the fleet industry.”
Commenting on his appointment, Aditya Varadpande, senior vice president and managing director at Fleetcor, said: “Since the acquisition of r2c Online last year, we’ve been working our way through an integration plan designed to create a seamless transition for customers and staff. The arrival of Tim marks the conclusion of that process. He is an excellent appointment with a superb track record and we are sure that he will make a success of this role.”
Meadows’ replacement at epyx is due to be announced shortly.
