MyTrucking kicking into the next gear with new GM

Transport software management solutions company MyTrucking has announced its new general manager.

MyTrucking has announced the appointment of its new general manager, with Tony Warwood stepping into the role come November.

Warwood joined the MyTrucking advisory board last year and has already infused his wealth of knowledge and expertise into the mix.

He might be trading the big smoke for idyllic rural living, but he isn’t stepping off the gas just yet.

“MyTrucking really is a breath of fresh air. The core of what MyTrucking does, and indeed what it was founded on, is helping people,” Warwood says.

“Helping transport operators do what they need to do more seamlessly. It’s an exciting space to be in.”

As a leader, he describes himself as a coach, mentor and motivator, always seeking to unlock potential in whoever he works with.

Stepping into the general manager role for MyTrucking is taking Warwood back to his heavy vehicle mechanic days.

While an injury saw him need to take a slight diversion in his earlier career path, he’s never veered far from the transport world.

“I progressed into transport technology, combine the two and you have a great group of people bringing innovative products to the market,” Warwood explains.

Since then he’s amassed a huge amount of experience, most notably his 15 years spent with EROAD in a variety of roles from sales through to senior management, and recently chief commercial ffficer for Netlogix.

The decision to get involved with MyTrucking was a no-brainer for Warwood, who’s got a passion for developing innovative businesses and making the world their oyster.

“Being involved in a high-growth business that’s entering new markets and constantly evolving is a really exciting thing to be part of. The people in the team are outstanding – their whole culture and ethos is incredible.”

Warwood said he’s looking forward to the challenges that lay ahead and seeing MyTrucking shift into the next gear.

He’s also looking forward to a life away from the hustle and bustle of the Auckland city and hopefully, the chance to get back to Sunday drives in a Mustang in the Wairarapa.

Hello? It’s Australia calling…

MyTrucking’s current head of customer success, Nikola Berryman, is heading over the ditch to Australia to take up a new role for MyTrucking as head of Victoria sales.

Making the move in the New Year, she will be the first ‘MyTrucker’ on the ground there.

Headed for the sunny Victorian Surf Coast, Nikola is looking forward to getting out and meeting new customers, and perhaps a spot of surf lessons when she’s off the clock.

“Up until now, we haven’t had anyone based over there. It’s a logical step for us to better support our customers, both current and future,” she says.

The MyTrucking team will miss Nikola in NZ, but are excited about the move and the continued growth of MyTrucking.
