PeopleNet founder named GM of parent company Trimble

SUNNYVALE, Cal. — Ron Konezny, founder and CEO of PeopleNet, has been appointed general manager of parent company Trimble’s worldwide transportation and logistics operations, the company announced.

“Since establishing PeopleNet in 1994, Ron has positioned the company as a fast-growing wireless tracking and mobile communications provider in the US transportation industry. His expanded leadership role will be an asset in growing our global presence as more fleets source solutions internationally,” said Bryn Fosburgh, vice-president of Trimble.
