Cadec Global, which helps companies stay connected to their private trucking fleets, announced that it has added two industry veterans to its senior management team: Eric Witty has joined as vice president, Product Management, and Brent Goldstein has joined as vice president, Software Engineering. Each has more than 20 years experience working in the wireless and fleet management industries. With the addition of these experienced executives, Cadec enhances its ability to meet customer requirements with timely and high-quality products and feature enhancements.
Witty is charged with developing innovative, market-driven products and services for Cadec’s private-fleet customers. He was most recently at Qualcomm, where he led the company’s DOT Hours-of-Service team and grew usage to over 200,000 trucks. Prior to Qualcomm, Witty held product marketing and engineering role at XRS/Xata. He has deep experience in HOS, CSA, IFTA and the rule-making process, plus SaaS, mobility, handheld applications and supply-chain workflow.
“Cadec’s PowerVue platform has all the right fundamentals – its architecture is perfectly suited for the modern private fleet – and that’s what attracted me to Cadec,” said Witty. “By focusing on private fleets we’re uniquely positioned to extend our open and flexible environment with new features and products that close competitive gaps and meet new and exciting market trends.”
As Vice President, Software Engineering, Goldstein is responsible for ensuring that the Cadec engineering team delivers high-quality software products and compiles a set of best practices for improving software development productivity. Goldstein brings to Cadec his expertise in analyzing customers’ business requirements and matching those with appropriate software functionality. He spent nearly 20 years at Motorola Mobility in a series of technical and management positions, and most recently held executive-level software engineering management positions at ACI Worldwide Payment Systems and Direct Capital. He holds a BSEE from the University of Missouri-Columbia and an MSEE from The Ohio State University.
“Combining my professional expertise and ability to quickly analyze customers’ needs, I look forward to working with the Cadec team to develop high-quality SaaS-based products that provide our customers with reliable functionality for their unique environments,” said Goldstein. “I’ll continue to look for new ways to improve our software engineering processes and operational efficiencies to give customers the right product at the right time."
“Eric and Brent have terrific backgrounds for Cadec,” said Tom Flies, chief operations officer at Cadec. “With deep understanding of compliance and mobility, they’re a great addition to Cadec’s private fleet management focus. We’re excited to have them as key members of the team.”
