Dave Witts Leaves Metric for Creditcall
Two news releases hit my inbox this AM:
CreditCall expands its US team with the appointment of Dave Witts as President of US Payment Services, effective January 2nd, 2013. Dave’s extensive industry knowledge and experience will help to further increase CreditCall’s footprint in card payment processing for both parking and other high-growth markets including mobile payments. He will also spearhead CreditCall’s growth in the vending and ticketing markets in the US.
Joining CreditCall from UK parking meter manufacturer Metric Parking, Dave successfully grew the firm’s US sales, marketing and service organization; tripling its revenues in the past five years. Recently, he negotiated the agreement with Amano McGann to undertake distribution of Metric products in North and South America.
“Already established as a major player in the US, CreditCall is now in a position to dramatically increase its revenues from its core parking markets and also in its newer sectors such as mobile, transportation and vending. The combination of the opportunity and challenge is something that attracted me to CreditCall. I’m excited to be heading up such an innovative and dynamic organization with such potential for growth,” commented Dave.
And from Metric:
In June of 2012 Metric Inc. signed an agreement with AmanoMcGann for exclusive marketing and sales distribution rights in North and South America. Since then President of Metric Inc, Dave Witts has restructured the organization to better support the AmanoMcgann team. As of October 29th, Phil Sirois will be appointed Business Alliance Manger directly supporting AmanoMcGann with a dedicated team supporting project management and product support. Phil joins the Metric team after many years in the parking industry and will be an important addition to our team. Additionally Metric Inc. will be promoting Theresa Salazar to General Manager supporting the operations of Metric Inc.’s facility located in Mount Laurel, NJ.
Dave Witts, President of Metric Inc. states, “This is the best move that Metric can make to better support our exclusive distributor of Metric Products and services. Both Phil and Theresa will bring the support and experience needed to bring our product to market in North and South America. Since our agreement was signed in June, Amano McGann has jumped into the market with multispace parking equipment and solutions. I truly believe they have the transition under control and will move the market forward for Metric Inc.”
With business moving ahead as planned, Dave Witts has decided to leave Metric at the end of the year, now with the new organization in place. Mr. Witts has decided join CreditCall Ltd as President of US Payment Services, effective January 2, 2013. Mr. Witts states “ I am happy to have brought Metric Inc. to this point, and know that Amano McGann will grow our business further. I know that the Metric product is best fit for the US market and it is now time for me to embark on a new growth structure with CreditCall”
I’ve known Dave for years and am certain he will do extremely well for CreditCall. He is personable, has an ethic that is outstanding, and has been a credit to Metric. I’m sure he will be missed.
All the best, Dave
