“As our new President, Rocky will be key to taking FourKites to the next level,” said Elenjickal. “He has a proven track record in delivering big wins for customers, building world-class teams, championing workplace diversity and culture, scaling processes and growing thriving partner ecosystems.

Prior to SAP, Subramanian served in various roles at Oracle/PeopleSoft (NYSE:ORCL), Renaissance and NCS Pearson. He also advises as a volunteer mentor, and supports organisations with missions focused on education accessibility and eradicating hunger.
“From the beginning, I have been inspired by FourKites’ vision. It goes far beyond visibility; FourKites is helping companies lower costs, improve customer satisfaction, enhance workplace productivity and achieve their sustainability goals. It’s helping get food, medication and critical supplies to people who need them — faster and more reliably than ever before,” said Subramanian. “Paired with the company’s world-class products, pace of innovation, rapid deployment, thriving partner ecosystem and the scale at which we can help our customers, the potential for FourKites’ global impact is limitless. I’m excited and proud to join Matt and the entire FourKites team on this mission.”
Subramanian’s appointment comes on the heels of significant momentum for FourKites. In 2022, the company realised 70% growth in new customers, with more than 1,200 of the world’s most recognised brands — including 50% of the Fortune 500 — now using FourKites to track more than 3 million shipments around the world every day. In addition to strategic investments in 2021 from industry heavyweights Qualcomm Ventures, LLC, Volvo Group Venture Capital AB and Zebra Technologies, over the past year, FourKites inked strategic partnerships with a number of industry titans to continue executing on its bold vision to provide visibility everywhere.
