Cartrack appoints two new executives


The telematics company has appointed Harry Louw as CEO of its South African operations and Jesse Young as its new Group Chief Information Officer. Both appointments are expected to support Cartrack’s growth strategy.

Louw brings 23 years of vehicle tracking industry experience to his role at the helm of one of the fastest-growing vehicle telematics platforms in the world. Young has more than 15 years’ experience in fleet telematics and is highly skilled in developing advanced technology and leading Software-as-a-Service platforms for the transportation industry in the United States.

Cartrack Global CEO Zak Calisto says he is confident that both executives are a good fit for the business.

“Both Harry and Jesse have a deep understanding of our fast-moving and highly competitive industry,” he says. “I have full confidence in their abilities to maintain our strong position in South Africa and globally as a leading SaaS telematics provider and the most trusted company for vehicle security and road safety. Jesse will also be leading our immensely talented research and development team in Singapore, and we welcome the support from the Singapore government regarding our commitment to drive the connected vehicle ecosystem.”

Cartrack remains confident that it can reach the milestone of one million subscribers in the near future, given the growing demand for solutions from both corporations and consumers in South Africa. Current active subscriber figures are in excess of 900 000.
