Recognized Exemplar of Leadership in Driving a Digital Future
Merchants Fleet is pleased to announce IT Vice President Kurt Taylor has been recognized by Constellation Research on its 2022 Business Transformation 150, an elite list of executives leading business transformation efforts around the globe.
Taylor joined Merchants Fleet in 2018 at the company’s Innovation Center in Rosemont, IL, and is responsible for end-to-end delivery of the company’s TotalView fleet technology platform, including new feature development, software quality assurance, and application management. Under Taylor’s leadership, the Technology team has implemented several major new features and hundreds of custom upgrades to the TotalView platform, providing clients with deeper control over their fleet operations, and allowing them to focus on cost savings, driver safety, business efficiency, and sustainability.
Over the past year, digital leaders have been greatly challenged by a perfect storm of disruptions due to COVID-19, generational shifts in the workforce, a hypercompetitive new customer experience landscape, and the relentless march of exponential digital change, among other factors. The BT150 nomination process took these influences to heart this year to make sure the list genuinely reflects today’s world and leading trends.
“I’m incredibly proud of the Technology team at Merchants Fleet, for ensuring our clients had the insights and support they needed to keep their operations running smoothly during the pandemic,” said Taylor. “We look forward to providing our clients with continued innovation that will help them make analytics-driven decisions as they begin to explore EV (Electric Vehicle) adoption.”
Nominations from peers, industry influencers, technology vendors and analysts powered the six-month selection process. Each executive on the list demonstrates an understanding of how the business environment is transforming in response to digital and exponential technologies, and these leaders are actively preparing their companies to excel during and after the transformation.
“In curating the next generation of Business Transformation 150 executives from our network, we emphasized those who are successfully navigating the historic challenges of the last year, while still effectively guiding their organizations to transform and evolve,” said Constellation Research’s VP and Principal Analyst, Dion Hinchcliffe. “I am excited to help them tell their stories to the world over the next year as we share from these leading lights in the digital world the many innovative ways they lifted their organizations up and propelled them into the future. I’m very proud of this year’s highly diverse group of BT150 inductees.”
