GPS Industries (GPSI), a provider of telematics and fleet tracking technology for low speed, has appointed Tim Dunlap as its new Chief Operating Officer.

Dunlap, an industry veteran with more than 20 years operations experience, comes to GPSI from ClubCorp. He joined the Dallas-based owner-operator of more than 200 facilities when it purchased Sequoia Golf in 2014. During Dunlap's tenure as COO of Sequoia Golf, it grew from a start-up managing seven facilities in Georgia to more than 55 across the U.S. 

"I am very excited to join the GPSI team and assist with the company's future growth," Dunlap said in a news release. "I look forward to utilizing my 20 years of management knowledge and sharing GPSI's many benefits." 

Prior to his time with Sequoia, he spent a decade increasing revenues and spearheading expense-management initiatives for a variety of properties operated by American Golf Corporation. Dunlap holds a degree in marketing from Long Beach State University, where he was also a member of the golf team.

"In Tim we have found a proven leader and operator who is a strong advocate for the 'voice of the customer,'" says Ben Porter, CEO of GPSI. "His presence on our executive team will help us continue to develop our business solutions platform that drives revenues and reduces expenses for fleet operators."

Formed in 2009 by Falconhead Capital in partnership with legendary golfer and businessman Greg Norman, GSPI is a provider of GPS tracking, telematics and API integration solutions for fleet operators of low-speed vehicles (LSV's) such as golf courses, master-planned communities, college campuses and resort properties. 

With its Visage Connectivity Solutions, platform, GPS Industries' devices and custom software solutions allow its clients to track, control and deliver content to their fleets.

It tracks more than 50,000 vehicles in over 50 countries. It has offices in Austin, Texas; Great Britain; Hong Kong; Sarasota, Fla; and Sydney, Australia. 

GPS Industries has installed its technology on over 900 LSV fleets, primarily in North America, Europe and the Middle East, which represents an estimated global market share in excess of 85 percent. GPSI is expected to keeping growing as it is currently developing additional consumer and commercial applications.
