We’re excited to introduce Motive’s new Head of Market Strategy, Gary Johnson, who brings to Motive more than three decades of experience in fleet safety, human resources, and employee management.

“I’ve had the pleasure of watching Motive grow from afar throughout the years,” Johnson says. “The company’s innovative vision is evident not only in its leadership, but in the Motive technologies that drive the physical economy forward. It’s an honor to be joining this exceptional team during a time when accurate AI and automation are changing the game for commercial fleets.”

Johnson comes to Motive from Lytx, where he honed his safety and compliance expertise over eight years. As Motive Head of Market Strategy, Johnson owns a marketing-based role with a broad scope. He’ll support all areas within Motive Marketing, including webinars, presentations, networking, and written communications. He’ll also serve as an experienced subject matter expert on transportation-related issues.

In the past, Johnson held safety and compliance leadership roles at Ryder Systems, FedEx, Transport Corporation of America, and other fleets. He’s a Certified Director of Safety (CDS), awarded by the North American Transportation Management Institute, and holds numerous accreditations in Occupational Safety and Health. He has presented at several state and industry events, government forums, and conventions hosted by the American Trucking Associations, the Truckload Carriers Association, the American Society of Safety Professionals, and others.

Even with his years of experience, Johnson considers the people he’s met along the way most impactful of all. “I’m honored to call many colleagues my friends and to have the opportunity to continue meeting new ones, especially now at Motive,” he says.
