Iteris Board Names Joe Bergera as President and CEO


Iteris, Inc the provider of information solutions to the transportation and agriculture markets, has appointed Joe Bergera as president, chief executive officer and director, effective September 23. He will succeed interim CEO, Kevin Daly, who will continue to serve on the company’s board of directors. This appointment represents the culmination of the company’s six-month nationwide CEO search.

Bergera brings more than 20 years of experience in the technology industry and has held a series of executive roles with global software and service companies. Bergera served as Group Vice President for Software of Roper Technologies, Inc. since 2011 and as President of iTradeNetwork, a Roper subsidiary since 2013. Through his tenure, Mr. Bergera has accumulated direct experience in Iteris’ core markets of transportation and agriculture, for both the private and public sectors. Bergera earned his B.A. in Government from Colby College, M.B.A. from the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago, and A.M. from the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago.

“We are very pleased that Joe will be leading the company during this critical transition period as the company expands its presence in the precision agriculture market, balancing it with our solid foundation in transportation,” said Kevin Daly, Iteris’ interim CEO. “With significant experience in a number of relevant businesses and technologies, we anticipate Joe will provide both strategic and operational value to the company on a going forward basis. His experience with complex technology organizations in multiple markets should serve us well as Iteris continues to evolve its business model.”

“The Board of Directors of Iteris is grateful for Kevin Daly’s service as the interim CEO over the past six months,” said Greg Miner, Chairman. “Under Dr. Daly’s leadership, the company has begun to demonstrate the value its products and services can bring to important markets such as transportation and agriculture, and the company is in an even better position today than it was when Kevin stepped in. With Joe’s leadership, we expect the company to continue its strong execution as we demonstrate the value of data analytics and information solutions to the transportation and agriculture markets.”
