Cape May, New Jersey – [September 23, 2021] – eDrivingSM, a Solera company, and leading global provider of digital driver risk management solutions, has appointed Sarah Bechtold as Senior Vice President, Global Driver Risk Management.

Sarah leverages her unique and robust background to bring our global driver safety solutions to new customers, and to partner with new and existing customers in the development of implementation strategies and plans to maximize the success of each risk management program deployment.

Sarah has nearly 20 years of experience working for a Fortune 250 company, with past responsibilities including project and change management, training, marketing communications, sales and safety. In her safety role, Sarah was responsible for developing a global fleet safety strategy and implementing a program that would increase awareness around the importance of safe driving and ultimately reduce vehicle collisions.

“With Sarah’s first-hand experience of the deployment and management of a successful global driver risk management program, her knowledge will be invaluable to our clients and prospective clients,” said Ed Dubens, CEO and Founder of eDriving. “Having led an extremely successful pilot and rollout of the Mentor program to drivers across North America and Canada, Sarah is perfectly placed to support companies from approval and pre-pilot stages through to full program implementation and management.”
