Inilex®, a leading provider of aftermarket telemetry solutions for vehicles, has been named to the Inc. 500|5000 list for the third straight year. Inilex ranked No. 1056 on the prestigious national list, which recognizes America’s fastest-growing privately held companies. Inilex’s enormous growth makes it one of Arizona’s most prominent companies, as well as one of the most successful companies in the automotive telematics industry.
Inilex manufactures and sells SkyLINK – an intelligent vehicle recovery device that uses GPS and cellular technologies to locate stolen vehicles in real time. Unlike other car theft-recovery devices, SkyLINK provides broad, nationwide coverage and it works with all law enforcement agencies. Inilex also offers InilexGPS and InilexGPS Fleet, which enable large enterprise companies to remotely monitor and manage their assets and workforce.
“Auto dealers recognize the high-value SkyLINK can deliver to their customers, and at the same time, consumers are increasingly realizing the benefits of including SkyLINK with their new vehicle purchase,” said Michael Maledon, Inilex CEO. “It’s this market demand that is fueling our growth and we are rapidly scaling to meet it.”
SkyLINK and InilexGPS are both uniquely positioned in the growing “connected car” ecosystem. According to market research firm Infonetics, the connected car segment will experience a 25 percent compounded annual growth rate through 2018 and will reach almost $17 billion in total market revenue as companies learn about the safety and security associated with connected cars. Inilex is poised to capture a large share of that total market because its products are specifically tailored to meet the needs of a variety of companies ranging from major national auto dealers to local businesses. SkyLINK is available at more than 600 dealerships nationwide and is quickly becoming the foremost vehicle recovery device that even local police forces prefer because of its real-time, quick tracking technology. For example, recently Inilex was pivotal in helping police apprehend a kidnapper during an urgent Amber Alert.
Inilex, a leading provider of intelligent telemetry solutions for vehicles, is continuing to expand its executive team with the addition of Brad Walls as the company’s vice president of corporate and business development. Walls brings a demonstrated track record in new business innovation, service, product management and long-term strategic planning to Inilex.
In his new role, Walls will lead Inilex’s national and international business development initiatives, helping to broaden its customer base and increase the market foothold for its intelligent telemetry solutions. He will also be charged with identifying strategic business opportunities and ensuring all operations are run with maximum efficiency.
“Brad has the right mix of leadership, relevant industry experience and talent, and is a welcome addition to our executive team,” said Michael Maledon, CEO of Inilex. “Last year was a record year of growth for us, and Brad will play an integral role as we continue to expand into new markets on both the national and international levels.”
Walls joins Inilex from TMX Finance, where he helped lead business development and managed a diverse project portfolio, including market analysis studies, product management and customer satisfaction measurement. Prior to that, Walls held key positions with Enterprise Holdings, which operates the largest fleet of vehicles in the world.
Walls will operate out of Inilex’s headquarters in Phoenix. He holds a bachelor’s degree in corporate communications from the University of Texas-Arlington, and is an active member of community organizations such as the United Way.

Forbes received applications from thousands of companies vying to be named ‘America’s Most Promising.’ To select and rank the list, Forbes evaluated a slew of variables to determine the companies’ trajectories. It refined its search by partnering with CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data research firm that specializes in assessing private companies. CB Insight’s Mosiac software scans 45,000 sources to measure a company’s health. Mosaic gathered those myriad signals into a final score that Forbes uses as an initial guide in producing the list. After verifying sales numbers, speaking with each company and debating their merits and blemishes, Forbes produced its final ranking.
