Inilex Appoints Cichon as CTO; Promotes Ream

Inilex, a leading provider of intelligent telemetry solutions for vehicles, is strengthening its leadership team with the addition of Robert Cichon as the company’s new chief technology officer (CTO), and the promotion of Kelly Ream to director of training.

Cichon joins as a seasoned technology veteran with more than 20 years of experience developing, implementing and managing mission-critical applications. A true technologist with strong business skills, he will play a key role in shaping Inilex’s technology strategy as it embarks on its next phase of growth. Cichon will lead the company’s technology team and drive core innovations that meet the needs of Inilex’s growing client base and open doors to new business opportunities.

Cichon most recently served as the CTO of Newtek Business Services, where he managed the company’s nationwide technology resources and large-scale IT initiatives. Prior to that, he spent six years contributing to the growth of Newtek’s retail web hosting business as its president and chief operating officer.

Earlier, Cichon worked for American Express, leading numerous tier 1 technology projects and building several successful software development teams. He holds both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Computer Information Systems, and is a primary inventor on a U.S. software patent.

“Robert has a strong track record of applying technologies that solve important customer problems, and brings to Inilex the proven ability to architect and lead highly successful technology teams,” said Michael Maledon, CEO of Inilex. “His expertise and leadership will be valuable assets as we continue to advance the vehicle telematics industry and maintain a brisk pace of innovation.”

Inilex has also promoted Ream to director of training, a newly created position. He will be responsible for creating, conducting and supervising development programs for Inilex’s employees and key partners. Ream formerly served as the company’s regional sales director for the East Coast.


Inilex Named to Forbes’ List of America’s Most Promising Companies

Inilex, a leading provider of automotive theft recovery and telemetry systems, has been named to the prestigious Forbes America’s Most Promising Companies list. Selected from thousands of applicants, Inilex was recognized by Forbes as one of 100 privately held up-and-comers with strong sales and hiring growth, exceptional management teams, sizeable market potential and strategic partnerships.

Headquartered in Phoenix, Inilex has experienced substantial growth in the past year, rapidly gaining momentum among auto dealers and consumers, and continuing to expand its line of advanced vehicle-recovery solutions. It has assembled a strong management team and built upon the success of its flagship SkyLINK vehicle-recovery solution with the introduction of both consumer and fleet monitoring services.

“Being named to this impressive list of America’s 100 Most Promising Companies is a honor that recognizes the accomplishments of our entire team,” said Michael Maledon, CEO of Inilex. “Our development team has delivered state-of-the-art technology, and our sales and support teams have done an exceptional job in building loyalty with our customers.  As we move into 2013, we are poised to expand our market share of customers looking for the most advanced theft recovery and asset management solutions in the automotive industry.”

Inilex was also recently named to the Inc. 5000 list, which identifies fast-growing companies.

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.
