Jeff St. Pierre, president and CEO of TTN Fleet Solutions, has announced the hiring of Shawn Houshmand as chief technology officer. Reporting directly to St. Pierre, Houshmand will oversee technology operations, architecture, design and development at TTN.
TTN Fleet Solutions helps customers achieve better business results with vehicle maintenance and repair technology and services. The company offers emergency roadside assistance, towing and accident management, scheduled and preventive maintenance, and call center solutions.
“Shawn’s consulting background combined with his experience as a technology leader for some of the nation’s largest and best-known brands will help TTN elevate and enhance our position as an innovator within the transportation maintenance industry,” St. Pierre explained. “As our service offering becomes increasingly automated and technology enabled — and as we add self-service tools and options to our business model — Shawn’s expertise will be invaluable to TTN and our customers.”
“Like many industries, ours is transforming. It’s becoming more Internet-enabled and data dependent,” St. Pierre continued. “Shawn understands how to connect technology and data in a way that provides meaningful benefit to our customers. Technology has always been a strategic advantage of TTN, and the addition of Shawn will make us even more competitive in that regard.”
Prior to joining TTN, Houshmand served as CEO of H&H Consulting. Before that, he served in a variety of strategic, technology-based roles for companies including American Airlines, Capital One and Kodak. His experience includes software architecture and design within a variety of industries, such as manufacturing, construction and financial services.
“I’m looking forward to developing, releasing, overseeing and improving game-changing software in the transportation maintenance space,” Houshmand said. “What we’re working on today has the potential to supercharge our own operations and, eventually, revolutionize the way our clients manage processes surrounding breakdowns, maintenance, and repairs. It’s an exciting time to be with TTN.”
