Written by Trimble   
Monday, 14 August 2017

Brian McLaughlin to Lead Trimble Transportation Mobility; Dave Wangler to Lead Trimble Transportation Enterprise

Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 14, 2017—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today that it has created two new divisions as part of its Transportation segment—Trimble Transportation Mobility and Trimble Transportation Enterprise.
The announcement was made in conjunction with the PeopleNet and TMW in.sight User Conference + Expo in Nashville.
Brian McLaughlin – President of Trimble Transportation Mobility
Brian McLaughlin, president of PeopleNet, has been appointed to president of Trimble Transportation Mobility. The newly-formed division will include several Trimble business units: PeopleNet, Innovative Software Engineering (ISE), Trimble Oil & Gas Services, Trimble Final Mile Mobility, Trimble Mobility Solutions India (TMSI) and several other mobile startup initiatives.
Fleets are increasingly looking for technology to enable them to solve complex business challenges, ranging from driver shortages and reduced capacity to increased safety and compliance with industry-wide regulations. The creation of Trimble Transportation Mobility aims to address these challenges by developing solutions that connect drivers, trucks, freight and data to improve performance and ROI.
“The transportation marketplace is evolving at a rapid pace and we must develop technology that drives efficiency, precision and simplicity throughout the supply chain. Trimble Transportation Mobility brings together a comprehensive set of solutions and industry expertise,” said Brian McLaughlin. “By improving collaboration across our respective businesses, we can ensure that Trimble continues to lead in delivering innovative products to our diverse set of customers and their drivers. We are positioning ourselves for continued growth through a market-centric approach to enable better, safer and greener fleets.”
McLaughlin joined PeopleNet in 2001, where he initially led the product innovation and marketing groups. He also served as chief operating officer (COO), and became president in 2011, the same year that PeopleNet was acquired by Trimble. In his roles, McLaughlin has helped to shape industry policy as it pertains to Electronic Logging Device (ELD) and other safety initiatives. In addition, McLaughlin serves the industry, including key roles within The American Trucking Association Technology and Maintenance Council, The National Private Truck Council and is also a board member of Trucker Buddy International.
David W. Wangler – President Trimble Transportation Enterprise
David W. Wangler, president of TMW Systems, has been appointed president of the newly formed Trimble Transportation Enterprise division, which comprises TMW Systems and ALK Technologies.
The Trimble Transportation Enterprise division will serve thousands of for-hire and private fleets, freight brokers, third-party logistics providers and other businesses through a portfolio that includes transportation management systems; routing, scheduling, mileage, mapping and mobile navigation solutions; business intelligence and data analytics; asset maintenance software; cloud solutions; and a variety of other products and services.
“A digital revolution is redefining the relationships between shippers, transportation service providers and end users of virtually every type of product. We expect the Transportation Enterprise technologies to play increasingly important roles in helping businesses address and, ultimately, benefit from these changes,” said Dave Wangler. “Our combined solutions offer the opportunity for asset- and non-asset-based businesses of all sizes to dramatically streamline their operations, reduce costs and improve overall competitiveness in a transformational business environment.”
Wangler, who joined TMW in 2006, has more than 30 years of experience in supply chain and manufacturing software. He previously held executive management positions in North America and globally for SupplyWorks (now part of Aptean), Baan, SKYVA International and Wonderware Corporation.
