Tim Meadows has been named as the new managing director at fleet and workshop software specialist r2c Online.
He succeeds Nick Walls, who founded the company in 2003, following its acquisition in April last year by KeyFuels, a subsidiary of FLEETCOR Technologies.
Tim arrives from another FLEETCOR company, fleet e-commerce specialist epyx, which he joined in 2016 and where, most latterly, he was vice president and commercial director.
He has a track record of more than 25 years in the fleet sector, having held senior positions at LeasePlan, Lombard and Custom Fleet.
Tim said: “I’m very excited to be taking over at r2c Online. Since the company became part of the FLEETCOR family, we’ve been working closely with them on several projects and have found the team, products and services here to be of the very highest standard.
“r2c Online is, we believe, the de-facto standard SaaS platform in the UK for commercial vehicle compliance and maintenance across fleet operators, fleet management providers, workshops and manufacturers. My aim is to build on that position, enhancing and growing the business, using both its existing resources and those now available across FLEETCOR.
“Especially, in the new normal, fleets are looking to their technology providers to deliver new ideas, benefits and innovations to help them cope with the unexpected conditions they now face. We’ll be working to meet some of those needs by remaining close to our customer base and continuing to innovate real solutions for the fleet industry.”
Paul Holland, managing director of UK fuels at KeyFuels, added: “Since the acquisition of r2c Online last year, we’ve been working our way through a handover programme designed to create a seamless transition for customers and staff. The arrival of Tim marks the conclusion of that process. He is an excellent appointment with a superb track record and we are sure that he will make a success of this role.”
