Technology leader to drive Fleetcoach in next phase of growth

Fleetcoach has a new CEO who has a clear vision for fleet safety.

Technology leader Richard Rayner has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer of Fleetcoach, Australasia's leading fleet safety solution.

This appointment comes as the New Zealand-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company looks to accelerate its growth locally and in Australia.

Rayner brings two decades of experience in various IT, governance, and project management roles, where he has focussed on supporting organisations to thrive and grow.  

Fleetcoach Board Chair Mark Ingle says the board is looking forward to the insight and leadership Rayner will bring to the role:

“Rayner’s extensive background will support us in achieving Fleetcoach’s strategic goals as a New Zealand business already growing in Australia, and with an eye now on new markets. The board and senior leadership look forward to gleaning from his expertise.”

Rayner says he is excited by this opportunity, drawn to Fleetcoach’s unique approach to driver training, which is research-backed and provides tangible benefits to customers:

“Everyone else trains drivers by telling them what they should be doing and punishing them with bad grades for getting it wrong. Fleetcoach trains drivers by giving them the practical skills to be self-aware of their mindset, enabling them to reframe their behaviour when they are behind the wheel.”

Rayner is a former CIO for both Foster Group Ltd and Feisst Group Ltd, CEO of Vo2 Ltd, and has held project management roles with Livestock Improvement Corporation, the University of Waikato, Wintec, and Waikato District Health Board. He joins Fleetcoach from Company-X, New Zealand's leading software development and VR simulation agency.

“I’m continually on the lookout for companies that provide their customers with simple solutions to real-world problems. Fleetcoach does just this and is well poised for substantial growth. I’m hoping I can be a significant contributor to this growth.”  

The new CEO’s vision is simple: every driver in New Zealand and Australia should have access to Fleetcoach:

“For every death or disability that occurs on our roads, the wider consequences to families and community are significant. I really see Fleetcoach as being the best shot we have on both sides of the Tasman to reduce that impact.”

Rayner takes up the role immediately, having recently returned from the Workplace Health and Safety Show in Melbourne, where Fleetcoach was a sponsor and exhibitor.
