Masternaut appoints new CTO; joins pan-European telematics leader from TomTom

Executive Team
Alex Rothwell, Chief Technology Officer, Masternaut
28 June, 2012

Masternaut, the pan-European telematics leader, has appointed Alex Rothwell to the position of Chief Technology Officer. Alex joins Masternaut with immediate effect from his role as Senior  Vice President at TomTom Solutions, where he gained extensive experience of integrating and building R&D teams across geographical borders and cultures. With an R&D background in microelectronics design and software development, Alex has overseen the transformation of infotainment platforms for the automotive and mobile sectors.

Alex will drive the strategic R&D and tactical delivery of new products to support Masternaut's go-to-market strategy. Backed up by a 100-strong R&D team, Alex will work alongside the sales and marketing teams to deliver integrated, market-leading products.

This senior appointment follows a period of rapid product development, as Masternaut continues to be the market frontrunner for R&D across a broad range of business telematics solutions. "Telematics 2.0" is the next phase in the evolution of these technologies, from track and trace to improved cost efficiencies, carbon reduction and driver safety standards.

Commenting on the appointment, Masternaut Chairman and CEO, Martin Hiscox, said: "With the appointment of Alex to the executive management team we are announcing our commitment to innovation in the M2M market. Alex has the depth of experience and technical expertise to deliver continued product development to customers and partners. Our focus remains on delivering customer value through investment in innovation to deliver even greater insights into vehicle use and driver behaviour."

Alex has built a successful track record in leading large engineering and development teams across the globe. At TomTom Solutions, Alex managed a team of engineers across six sites in Europe, Asia and the US. Previous roles include senior responsibility for R&D at Emerson, the global manufacturing and technology company, and over 10 years at Symbian, where Alex delivered technical consulting and specialized outsource work for its main shareholders, including Nokia, Samsung and LG, among others.

Alex added: "R&D plays a pivotal role in the commercial success of any technology company. Masternaut is the leader in innovation in the telematics sector, making my new role a dynamic, exciting prospect. I am thrilled that I have the opportunity to combine my experience with an already top-of-the-range product portfolio to deliver continued increases in the satisfaction levels of Masternaut's customers."
