In this role, AK will accelerate Eroad’s footprint throughout the U.S. and Canada, driving product innovation and adoption.
Following Eroad’s acquisition of Coretex in 2021, AK joined the team as chief innovation officer, where he positioned technological and engineering advancements. With over 20 years experience in technology and innovation, AK previously served as COO at Coretex, where he oversaw the company’s North American operations and product strategy.
“With an innate passion for innovation, I am excited for the opportunity to drive Eroad’s growth in North America and continue to serve the people that matter most - our team, our customers, and drivers,” said AK. “The future of transportation is being disrupted by massive connectivity, automation, and augmentation challenges and opportunities. With that, Eroad strives to push our technology even further as we assist customers through these disruptions and help them seize the opportunities presented by AI and machine learning in improving safety and optimizing performance.”
In addition to leading the North American team, AK will continue to serve in a dual role as Eroad’s chief innovation officer, where he will drive Eroad’s product roadmap.
“A new fiscal year brings the opportunity for growth, and we’ve taken this time to reflect and dive further into unique opportunities and challenges in the North American market,” said Mark Heine, CEO of Eroad. “We know that AK fits this role and these needs flawlessly and will continue to keep innovation at the forefront of everything we do at Eroad.”
