By Ken Briodagh September 06, 2018

Suntech International, a maker of GPS trackers and telematics headquartered in South Korea, recently announced the hiring of Robert L. Martin to lead its U.S. business. Building on the success of its telematics products in Mexico, Brazil, and across Central and South America, Martin will take responsibility as President and CEO of Suntech U.S. to bring the company’s innovative leadership in this field to industry partners in the USA and Canada.

Martin previously was North American Operations Director for Octo Telematics, an insurance telematics service provider, where he's worked since 2008. A former Washington D.C. lobbyist for promoting telematics and emergency communications, Martin also served as Executive Director of the national 9-1-1 emergency number (NENA) and emergency dispatch associations (NAED). He has more than 25 years of management, coalition building, and organizational communication experience, with special emphasis in the telematics and public safety industries.

“We're very pleased to have Mr. Martin join the Suntech International team,” said James Yang, President and CEO, Suntech International. “His experience and understanding of telematics operations makes him an excellent choice to lead Suntech U.S. We look forward to his guidance and support to establish partnerships with many more North American fleet management companies and telematics service providers, enabling them to continue to offer more reliable and innovative services to their customers.”

This month Suntech is announcing three new lines of 4G/LTE M1 hardware products, the ST4300, ST4500, and ST4900 series, with excellent capabilities for use in the asset tracking, vehicle tracking, and safety and security telematics markets in the U.S. and Canada.
