Tech veteran tapped to lead ITS company GMV Syncromatics

Posted on February 4, 2020

Technology company GMV has announced the appointment of Rich Archuleta as CEO of its Los Angeles ITS company, GMV Syncromatics, effective January 2020.

Archuleta is replacing Ian Sephton who, after seven years as CEO, will continue to serve on the Board of Directors of GMV Syncromatics.

Career highlights include a 26-year stint at Hewlett Packard (HP), where he started out in semiconductor research, and he soon gained a reputation as a strategic business leader. He re-booted HP’s struggling PC notebook business, was subsequently named Mobile Computing’s “Person of the Year” and was launched into larger GM roles within HP.

Archuleta’s management roles at HP included product and operating responsibilities across multiple units of the $4B business, which employs 2,500 worldwide.

In 2007 Archuleta was appointed CEO of Plastic Logic, a company he grew from 30 to 400 employees with a research office in Cambridge, a product development department in Silicon Valley, a display factory in Dresden and operations near Moscow. Afterwards he worked as a consultant to diverse technological companies.

GMV Syncromatics currently provides its Intelligent Transportation System solutions to over 130 operators and public-transport authorities in 25 different states across the U.S. Its flagship clients include the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation, the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and MV Transportation.
