Irving’s RollKall Adds Chief Revenue Officer, Co-Founder Takes on Chief Innovation Officer Role

The new CRO's career highlights include roles at Deloitte Consulting, ESPN Digital Media, and Uber Eats, where the exec played a key role in making Los Angeles the first city to reach 1,000 restaurants among all Uber Eats locations.

Derek Beckman has been appointed chief revenue officer of Irving-based RollKall, an industry leader of innovative extra-duty law enforcement technology solutions, in a move the company said is a strategic step as the company seeks greater innovation and community impact.

The company said that Beckman brings a “rich tapestry” of experiences to his new role with a diverse background encompassing financial services, sports media, logistics, and blue-collar staffing. His career highlights include roles at Deloitte Consulting, ESPN Digital Media, Uber Eats, and Workrise (formerly RigUp), where RollKall said he demonstrated exceptional skills in scaling operations and strategic planning.

“[Beckman’s] remarkable track record of scaling businesses and his visionary leadership are exactly what RollKall needs at this pivotal moment in our growth,” CEO and President Brad Duea said in a statement.

Duea said the new CRO’s “strategic insight and operational expertise will be invaluable as we continue to innovate and expand our services to support law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve.” 

Duea assumed his job in December.

Among Beckman’s career milestones is his impactful tenure at Uber Eats, where he started and led the restaurant growth team, overseeing sales, account management, onboarding, and customer support teams and demonstrating exceptional skills in scaling operations and strategic planning.

Beckman played a key role in making Los Angeles the first city to reach 1,000 restaurants among all Uber Eats locations. He led the Uber Eats launch and managed the partnership with McDonald’s across Southern California, marking the first enterprise partnership for the food delivery service.

RollKall said that Beckman’s appointment is significant for its alignment with the company’s mission.

The company said Beckman’s passion for initiatives that foster economic growth and empower communities resonates deeply with the company’s mission.

“Joining RollKall is a natural progression in my career, and I am excited to contribute to a company that supports our law enforcement heroes and enhances public safety,” Beckman said in a statement.

RollKall also announced that Ben Poch, co-founder of RollKall, will develop new market opportunities in his role as chief innovation officer.

Poch has served in various roles within the company, including his current position on the board. With his diverse background in startups and as an entrepreneur and technology virtuoso, the company said that Poch is poised to lead RollKall’s path towards growth and innovation in the coming years.

“The addition of Derek to the leadership team and Ben’s new role, coupled with Brad’s leadership, solidifies our commitment to innovation and excellence. We are poised for an exciting phase of growth and societal contribution,” Chris White, RollKall founder and chairman of RollKall’s board, said in a statement.
