About the client
Radius was founded by CEO Bill Holmes as a fuel card company in 1990 but now provides an array of products and services including telematics, telecoms and insurance, boosted by a number of recent acquisitions. These include business telecoms provider Reliance Network as well as telematics firm Sure-Trak and Key Telematics, expanding its telematics work, while it also acquired commercial insurance broker The Burley Group last year. Radius now offers a wide package of products and services for fleet operators and has 23 offices in more than 15 countries worldwide.
