SEATTLE — Fleet management technology provider Zonar has appointed Ron Cordova to its compliance team.

Cordova, who has nearly 25 years of experience in commercial vehicle law enforcement, joins Zonar as its newest compliance manager. In the role, he will drive execution of business initiatives and ensure that Zonar solutions meet the required regulations and address customer needs.

Cordova will also manage intra-department relationships and assist in defining, testing, and supporting products while being actively involved with relevant industry associations.

Cordova spent more than two decades with the New Mexico Department of Public Safety’s Motor Transportation Police Division, where he advanced to the rank of major and managed parts of the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit. He also served as the Commercial Vehicle Information Systems and Networks program manager for New Mexico.

In addition to his roles in law enforcement, Cordova served in various capacities with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance, including as president from 2005 to 2006.

"In order to help fleets stay compliant, it is critical to have an experienced and knowledgeable team focused on ever-changing rules and regulations, ready to provide counsel and support," said Fred Fakkema, vice president of compliance at Zonar. "Our customers' safety is our first priority, and Ron's remarkable breadth of experience will further strengthen Zonar’s ability to create products and solutions that make it easy for operators and managers to not only follow the law, but also keep themselves and other drivers safe."
