With Caswell taking on the new role as CEO, former CEO Gary Tucker will transition into a role as consultant focused on strategy and business growth. Tucker is credited with having transformed the business away from consumers and toward commercial fleets and for successfully navigating Zubie through industry headwinds caused by COVID-19.
“Having served as Zubie’s CTO for the past four years, I’m excited about leading Zubie in our mission to deliver simple-to-use telematics software for rental operators, fleet managers, and dealers,” said CEO Caswell. “I look forward to placing an increased focus on growing Zubie’s technology and software capabilities and continuing to lead our growth in the rental and fleet markets.”
A 20+ year SaaS technology and product veteran, Caswell was previously Vice President of Technology for Insite Software, a globally recognized B2B commerce application by Forrester Research and Gartner. Prior to that, Chad was a founder at FeePay, a Tekne award-winning education payment software platform that supported 2.5M global users, native mobile, web back office and native mobile retail.
“The Board would like to thank Gary for his creative and effective leadership in establishing a sound foundation for Zubie’s future success,” said Ron LeMay, Zubie Board Chairman. “We are fortunate to have a talented executive in Chad to succeed Gary. Chad’s knowledge of the Company will permit him to capitalize on the existing foundation and seize the momentum associated with the Company’s improving performance and the post Covid-19 tailwinds.”
“After four years of leading the Zubie team, I’m proud to transition a healthy business with full-service stable of products and a growing customer base to Chad’s more-than-capable leadership,” said Tucker. “Chad was my first hire as CEO. He’s well-positioned to lead Zubie into a successful future.”
