Former CEO and Director of Motion Acquisition Corp brings more than 20 years of leadership experience as IntelliShift charts latest expansion
COMMACK, N.Y., December 1, 2021 – IntelliShift, the leading cloud-based fleet and safety management platform, today announced the addition of Michael Burdiek to its company board of directors. Burdiek, most recently the CEO and Director of Motion Acquisition Corp, brings more than 20 years of executive leadership experience, as well as extensive board advisory expertise, to IntelliShift. Prior to founding Motion Acquisition Corp, he spent nine years as the CEO and a board member of CalAmp, where he was instrumental in the company’s transition to a SaaS business model and in helping strengthen its mobile technology offerings.
Burdiek joins IntelliShift at an exciting time, as the company charts its next stage of product growth and innovation. As a member of the board, Burdiek will advise the organization on its transformative strategy to help solve key industry challenges and address new opportunities. This includes recent enhancements to IntelliShift’s AI Video dash camera solution, which increases on-the-road safety and improves driver experience and retention as the industry grapples with record high talent shortages. Burdiek’s industry expertise will be key to building upon this approach to better serve customers and deliver exceptional business outcomes.
“Between the driver shortage, supply chain disruption and ongoing fuel volatility, fleets have to be strategic in order to meet and exceed their goals,” said John Cunningham, Founder and CEO of IntelliShift. “We see an incredible long-term opportunity in delivering a solution that not only improves decision-making, but optimizes fleets across their ecosystem. We look forward to leveraging Michael’s insights as we continue making this value a reality for our customers.”
Burdiek, in addition to his most recent role at Motion Acquisition Corp, serves on the board of directors for DocGo and Five9. He played a key role in ensuring the success of DocGo’s merger with Motion Acquisition Corp and continues to contribute to the organization today. Earlier in his career, he held executive leadership positions at Telenetics and Comarco, Inc.
“As further highlighted at IntelliShift’s ConnectedOps 2021 Summit, the company is deeply attuned to the challenges that are top of mind for the global transportation industry. Success in addressing these challenges requires a strong network of customer and community relationships, collaborative partnerships and true innovation. IntelliShift’s commitment to industry leadership is evident, and I’m proud to be in a position to help the organization take the next step in its evolution and growth,” said Burdiek.
