Industry veteran Mike Nalepka launched VideoProtects, an advocacy and consulting company focusing on the transportation video technology market. Founder Nalepka will be the chief executive officer, according to the company.
With over a decade of experience consulting and recommending technology solutions for hundreds of trucking companies of all sizes, Nalepka is narrowing his focus to video-based technology solutions that will meet the needs of both commercial and passenger vehicles alike, the company said.
“This is an exciting time for video technologies in the transportation market,” Nalepka said. “We have only just begun to understand the power of video onboard trucks and cars and the possibilities for making good and potentially not so good choices are endless. The video revolution started with some early adopting commercial fleets but soon video will be commonplace in and around not just the tractor and trailer but around cars as well. The mission of VideoProtects is to inform, advocate, and consult the transportation industry on the latest video technology.”
Nalepka formerly was general manager for Video Intelligence Solutions at PeopleNet. Prior to that, he served as the company’s vice president of business development.
Before joining PeopleNet, Nalepka held senior positions at TMW Systems as vice president of business development, vice president of region sales, as well as vice president and general manager of TMW Synergize. Prior to joining TMW Systems in 2010, Nalepka was the vice president of sales and fleet imaging solutions at DriverTech, and the national sales manager at McLeod Software.
