Mark Greene, TracPlus's New CTO to drive wildfire innovation.
TracPlus, a leading commercial provider of wildfire response management systems, is proud to announce the addition of Mark Greene as its new Chief Technology Officer. Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, Mark brings extensive experience in strategic technology development and a proven track record of driving innovation in the face of global challenges.
Mark says he’s excited to join TracPlus to help guide the team to create innovative solutions that protect both people and the environment and achieve the vision of bringing every firefighter home safe, no matter how demanding their mission.
“The challenges posed by climate change and its impact on wildfires have created an urgent need for innovative solutions. I’m looking forward to leveraging my experience to develop technologies that not only increase the safety of wildland firefighting, but also contribute to the overall effectiveness of wildfire prevention and mitigation efforts.
“It's an honour to be part of a team dedicated to providing innovative solutions in the wildfire industry and making a real difference in the world,” says Mark.
Mark joins TracPlus having spent most of his career in B2B SaaS companies, including IoT (Internet of Things) and vehicle telemetry organisations.

TracPlus specialises in developing leading telemetry and data solutions that make wildfire fighting organisations safer and more efficient. TracPlus is the only commercial provider to deliver a whole-of-country solution for integrated aircraft tracking in the wildfire management space. We do this by tying multiple data streams and asset types into a single view of the truth for mission-critical operations and deliver situational awareness to operators, irrespective of who owns the asset, what the asset is, who provides the tracking, or what the platform or signal type is — be it IP, IoT, cellular or satellite.
Our powerful, cloud-based platform enables our customers to track, manage, monitor, and message their personnel and resources, including land, maritime, and aviation assets, to keep crews safe, conserve resources, and maximise coordinated efforts.
As the trusted provider of the mission-critical tracking and communications platform for first responders, government agencies, militaries, and other critical operators around the world, TracPlus has been present at virtually every major disaster response globally in the past five years.
TracPlus has its roots in search and rescue after a boating triple-fatality in 2003 off the coast of New Zealand's South Island. The vessel had a traditional 121-style rescue beacon which provided a basic locational signal but due to the requirement of multiple satellite passes to pinpoint the rescue location it meant that four possible locations for the party were identified on different sides of the country. It wasn't until almost three hours after the initial incident occurred that the rescue team were able to find the vessel by which time three of the six occupants had succumbed to the treacherous conditions.
Following this incident, the pilot of the rescue helicopter and a local technology enthusiast got together to come up with a better way to find people in distress; by actively tracking them all the time, not just when they need help. In late 2005, a small satellite-based tracking terminal was fitted to a helicopter and 18 months later, TracPlus Global was born. Since then we've earned the trust of customers in over 40 countries, have supported over 9,500,000 operational hours of firefighting, search and rescue, EMS transfers, and more.
