CHARLESTON, S.C. — Connected car and telematics provider Zubie announced that Gary Tucker has joined the company as CEO. Tucker leaves his role as CEO of dealer review site DealerRater.com.
Tucker replaces Tim Kelly, who left Minneapolis-based Zubie in June. He takes over from interim CEO Prag Shah, who returns to his role as chief operating officer. Zubie sells devices that connect vehicles to the Internet using an OBD II device with built-in Wi-Fi.
Tucker will guide Zubie's efforts to achieve growth among the insurance and fleet sectors of the automotive industry. Zubie is seeking greater scale of its data insights to reach enterprise customers, according to the company.
