2014 ‘Women of M2M’ Honoree Tamara Chamberlin Shares Secrets of her Success
by Maria Montenegro
A group of remarkable women from around the U.S. were honored in Chicago last Thursday for their contributions to advancing adoption of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technology which is disrupting traditional business models and creating new efficiencies and products across a host of industries. Tamara Chamberlin, vice president of sales with Verizon Networkfleet, was among the honorees that traveled to Chicago for the 2014 ‘Women of M2M’ awards dinner hosted by Peggy Smedley, editor of Connected World Magazine.
I was fortunate to spend some time with Tamara before the evening ceremonies kicked off and was inspired by her passion for Verizon Networkfleet and the telematics industry. On top of her very successful track record which garnered a seat at this prestigious table, Tamara absolutely loves what she does which is a key ingredient to her career and personal satisfaction.
Tamara strongly believes that driving the right culture is the way to succeed in business, and to that end her mantra is company first, team second and self last. This selfless philosophy helps to ensure that actions and decisions will be motivated by the best interests of the company and the clients it is serving.
In addition, Tamara also shared insights about the state of the fleet management telematics industry and the sectors where this technology is taking off. After years of a ‘slow burn,’ Tamara cites that adoption rates are now ‘skyrocketing,’ and that fleet management telematics strategies are enjoying steady growth among state and local governments, in addition to service industries such as plumbing, heating and construction. She also added that there is a hunger by organizations for data analytics which is also fueling interest in fleet management telematics. Verizon Networkfleet offers fleet management solutions which provide a wide variety of monitoring and management capabilities for increased productivity and improved customer service.
