Fleetmatics Group PLC has appointed Shred-it's president and CEO to its Board of Directors. The appointment was effective on Nov. 26, according to the company.

Vincent De Palma has been CEO of global information security company Shred-it since 2009. His experience managing a global company for which fleet and service worker optimization is an operational imperative makes him a natural fit for the position, according to Fleetmatics.

"Given that Shred-it delivers its service via a sizeable global fleet, and given Vince's experience in managing that fleet at peak operational efficiency over the past five years, there is no question that his domain expertise will be a value-add to our Board," said Jim Travers, Fleetmatics CEO and chairman of the board. "Vince joins an already-strong team of like-minded, strategic business leaders who continue to drive Fleetmatics forward with incredible speed and success."

Prior to Shred-it, De Palma was president at Pitney Bowes Management Services and executive vice president of Pitney Bowes, Inc. from 2005 to '09. Prior to that, De Palma was president of Benefit Services and corporate vice president of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP) from 1999 to 2005.
