The fleet management software company said the relocation to San Diego will bring it closer to sector partners
New Zealand-based fleet truck performance management software company EROAD announced Tuesday that it is relocating its North American headquarters from the Portland area to San Diego.
The press release said the move means EROAD is joining a growing number of area tech businesses focused on transportation and logistics, fleet telematics, video-based safety, and data-driven fleet management for commercial vehicles.
“A broadly recognized innovation sector, coupled with the growth of the advanced fleet technology ecosystem in the region, makes San Diego the ideal location for our new North America headquarters,” Akinyemi Koyi, chief innovation officer and president of EROAD North America, said a press release. “This move, coupled with the expansion of our U.S. leadership team with highly accomplished and tenured professionals, represents an important milestone for our business. These moves will help fuel our continued growth as we expand our fleet management, compliance, safety, and performance offerings.”
EROAD’s new base of operations in Carmel Mountain Ranch, a community in San Diego County, includes an office space and a fulfillment center for the company to ship to its customers across the country.
The move will bring EROD into the same neighborhood as Cubic, which develops fare and toll collection technologies, and Netradyne – a motion detection and biometrics software company which supplies Amazon with AI trackers to monitor freight drivers.
The company, which saw 46% annual sales growth in Fiscal Year 2023, also announced three new executive hires in finance, operations, and marketing in the same release. According to the release, Tracey Herman has been hired as executive vice president of finance; Kerynn Holtzman was hired as vice president of operations, and Sarah Wicker is now the company’s vice president of marketing.
EROAD’s move comes amid news of other companies either shuttering Portland-area locations — like Cracker Barrel — or moving out of downtown Portland. EROAD’s North American office was situated in Tualitin.
