We’re delighted to announce that Patrick Pélata, former COO of Groupe Renault and Executive Vice President – Chief Automotive Executive at Salesforce.com, is officially the newest member of the Vulog board of directors. Patrick’s arrival comes at a time of accelerated growth, in a booming vehicle sharing market where many major OEMs are partnering with us to power their new mobility initiatives.
“Vulog is a key player in the automotive tech ecosystem and a global leader in carsharing technology, boasting tremendous accomplishments across Europe, North America, and Asia,“ said Pélata. “I am excited for the opportunity to contribute to the company’s evolution, as we see Vulog’s technology rapidly deployed across the world’s greatest cities and prepare for the eventual transition to the autonomous shared vehicle.“
“We are both proud and thrilled to welcome Patrick Pélata to Vulog’s board, “ said Vulog’s CEO, Gregory Ducongé. “His exceptional experience in the automotive and technology industries, combined with his strategic vision of the future of the automotive sector, will be invaluable assets in our next phases of development. He immediately connected with Vulog’s mission, mostly because of his unwavering commitment to the development of new mobility.“
In addition to his new role on our board, Patrick Pélata was recently entrusted by French President Emmanuel Macron to lead a public mission on new mobility concepts with electric and autonomous vehicles. Alongside Xavier Mosquet, a partner at BCG and former advisor to the Obama administration, Pélata is preparing a list of proposals to position France as a global leader in new mobility.
Welcome on board, Patrick!
