Princeton, New Jersey – December 2, 2011 - ALK Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of geo-logistics and navigation software, today announced the formation of a new group, Enterprise Solutions, comprised of its PC*MILER, CoPilot Truck and CoPilot Live Professional product lines plus supporting map data, software tools and professional services.
ALK’s Enterprise Solutions Group is responsible for sales, business development, marketing, product management and support for all products and services sold worldwide to transportation and logistics companies. The team is dedicated to growing ALK’s global footprint by delivering innovative mapping, routing, navigation and other geo-logistics solutions and serving the transportation, logistics and mobile enterprise markets.
Leading the Enterprise Solutions Group is Michael Kornhauser, Senior Vice President, who reports directly to Barry J. Glick, CEO of ALK Technologies. Executives also appointed to the newly formed team are Dan Popkin, Vice President Business Development, Worldwide; Dan Titus, Vice President Business Development, North America; and Craig Fiander, Vice President Marketing, North America. Chris Quin and Klaus Kremer lead business development and marketing for the Europe, Middle East and Africa markets.
“I’m very pleased to announce the formation of our Enterprise Solutions Group,” said Barry Glick, CEO of ALK Technologies. “This new organization, responsible for delivering to our customers and partners all of ALK’s extensive geo-logistics focused technologies, enables us to meet the growing needs of the global transportation, logistics and mobile enterprise markets for fully integrated transportation-specific routing, mapping, and navigation. The appointment of a leadership team with extensive industry and technology backgrounds is indicative of the importance we place on the group’s mission.”
“The consolidated product offerings and market-oriented focus of the Enterprise Solutions Group strongly positions ALK to lead in the fulfillment of growing global demand for more integrated and connected solutions,” said Michael Kornhauser, Senior Vice President. “By building upon our industry-standard PC*MILER product line and fully-featured CoPilot Live navigation solutions, we are creating value and maximizing the opportunities in the marketplace.
