FLEETCOR Technologies, Inc. announced that Ashley Thekkekara has been named head of the company’s newly created North America local fuel card business effective July 1, 2017.


Thekkekara is assuming the responsibility of the local fuel card business from Todd House, who announced his intention to resign. This new position is being established to realign the North America fuel card business into three market facing components: local fuel cards, partners and trucking. David Maxsimic will continue to head the North America Partner business and Greg Secord will continue to head the North America trucking business, but both David and Greg will take on additional responsibilities under the realignment.


“I would like to congratulate Ashley on his appointment. He is an accomplished executive with proven operational expertise that has helped lead our growth in fuel cards in North America,” said Ron Clarke, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of FLEETCOR Technologies, Inc. “We’d also like to thank Todd for his many contributions for the past eight years. Todd has recruited some terrific people, has been a big part of our journey and he will be missed.”


“I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished over the last eight years,” said Todd House. “I have worked closely with Ashley and have complete confidence that the North American local fuel card business is poised for years of growth under his leadership.”


Thekkekara joined FLEETCOR in 2009 and has most recently been in charge of the overall STP transformation initiative. Prior to that, Ashley held the position SVP of Global Credit and Rate Management. Before joining FLEETCOR, he was VP of Marketing and Analytics at Axiant, LLC.
