RentalMatics, a leading mobility solution for the car rental, car sharing and peer-to-peer industries, has announced the appointment of Simon Ward as its new VP of Sales. Simon joins the business with 18 years’ experience in the area of car rental.
Simon worked for HESC (Hertz European Service Centre) for seven years, helping to lead and develop its sales department while also facilitating the transition to online sales in the early 2000s. The bulk of Simon’s car rental experience has come from his 11 years spent with Cartrawler where he was Head of Car Rental Supply Department. Simon was key in aiding over 500 car rental suppliers gain access to new customers directly from major airlines, OTAs (online travel agencies) and a variety of comparison sites globally.
The RentalMatics platform is a multi-patent granted solution for the mobility industry and currently supports rental fleets across UK, Europe, North America, South America and Australia. RentalMatics has developed a SaaS telematics-based operating system which enables companies that manage large fleets to automate, visualise and manage their operations in real time and generate greater efficiencies. The RentalMatics technology allows businesses to see where their vehicles are, access their every movement, tackle theft and fraudulent activity, increase damage recovery, maximise vehicle usage, and transform insurance costs.
Colm Brady CEO of RentalMatics said: “I have worked with Simon for many years as a customer and supplier in previous roles and his knowledge of the car rental industry and approach to solving new and challenging situations will be a significant asset to the company as we continue to scale our business.”
Commenting on his appointment, Simon Ward the VP of Sales at RentalMatics added: “I first became aware of RentalMatics and its unique technology solution at an International Car Rental Show in 2018. Having worked in the car rental sector for over a decade I knew that this was a standout offering – something that every car rental company needs but doesn’t necessarily have. I’m delighted to join the team at RentalMatics and look forward to leveraging my experience to date in supporting the company’s growth mission.”
