Vinli Hires George Ayres as Executive Vice President of Partnerships


Reading time ( words)

Vinli, Inc. announces that it has hired George Ayres as its Executive Vice President of Partnerships. Most recently, Ayres served as a Client Partner for Automotive at IBM. Previously, he served as the VP Global Sales of Verizon Telematics and has also held leadership roles at both Ford Motor Company and Jaguar Cars over a career spanning three decades in the automotive industry.

"George has rare experience and unique skillsets in the automotive industry and is the perfect candidate to expand the Vinli ecosystem," says Mark Haidar, founder and CEO of Vinli.

"The automotive industry is constantly changing and there's a lot of expansion within the connected and autonomous vehicle space right now," says Ayres. "My motivation has always been to stay on the leading edge of this high-tech digital transformation, and that's why I'm joining Vinli. Their fast-moving and agile team is making really interesting things happen through innovative connected vehicle technology, data, and predictive analytics."

Vinli's cloud-based and containerized open micro-services platform allows its clients and partners to quickly respond to the rapidly changing mobility market. For example, understanding how customers drive and maintain a vehicle, and predicting maintenance and crashes, may influence a fleet company's insurance rates. The fleet company can also use this same data to incentivize drivers to improve their driving behavior and attention to vehicle maintenance.

However, Vinli sees the future as encompassing much more.

"Beyond automotive, industries from retail to insurance are using mobile technology, geo-location targeting, and micro-personalized data to be even more relevant to their customers," says Ayres "What these companies want to figure out is how to leverage transportation and vehicle data so they can engage with their customers better and integrate it with the other information they already have. Vinli is uniquely organized to lead in this space."

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.
