Leading international telematics company The Floow has appointed Matt Chalk as Sales Director for the EMEA region.
Matt Chalk joins from Vodafone and has 12 years industry experience as a sales leader in the telematics and financial services sectors. Matt will report to David James, Chief Operating Officer at The Floow.
Based in Sheffield in the UK and Detroit in the USA, The Floow is one of the fastest growing and most innovative telematics providers in the world. The Floow’s unique capabilities in technology and data science create a user-friendly telematics platform that helps people to drive more safely by providing them with insights into their behaviour behind the wheel and guidance on how to improve it.
Matt’s appointment comes at a time when The Floow is expanding its footprint in the US, UK and mainland Europe. Recent international business research conducted for The Floow indicated that more than nine in ten (95%) insurance decision makers now see clear benefits of using telematics and the data science that powers it. Matt is joining The Floow to exploit this opportunity within Europe.
Matt Chalk said: “In the next five years, telematics is going to be a game changer not only for the insurance sector but also in helping Governments to tackle road safety, congestion, pollution and infrastructure issues. We are entering a new era of tech-enabled smart mobility and I am delighted to have joined The Floow team, a brand that I regard to be at the forefront of the telematics revolution.”
David James, Chief Operating Office at The Floow added: “Telematics isn’t just about the data, it’s about the quality of people behind the technology. As we prepare for a period of international expansion into new markets, we are investing in attracting the best people to our business - and Matt will be a welcome addition to our expanding international management team.”
