“We founded Gorilla Safety with the singular goal of helping to to ensure all roads become safer for every motorist. As insurance industry professionals, my co-founder, Tommy Johnson and I, saw firsthand myriad voids in the fleet safety management process.

We are proud to see Gorilla Safety honored for that,” said Gorilla Safety co-founder Mark Walton.
“We thank the American Business Awards and TU-Automotive Awards judges for acknowledging the benefits our pioneering solution brings to the marketplace and for recognizing the importance of safety. This recognition will help elevate awareness of the important role fleet safety plays on our nation’s roads. We greatly value each of these honors, and are confident that our app has the power to truly change the way fleet safety is performed and managed, ultimately impacting the safety of many,” noted Gorillas Safety co-founder Tommy Johnson.
