Creation of the Europcar Lab
The Group has decided to create a specific entity, called the Europcar Lab, designed to foster innovation and improve customers’ mobility. Establishing the Lab is a key milestone that will help Europcar further develop its portfolio of innovations in mobility.
The Europcar Lab is leaded by Fabrizio Ruggiero, MD of Europcar Italy, in charge of new mobility services, and includes a group of experts who are focused on the design and prototyping of innovative leading edge solutions and closely monitoring market opportunities.
The first illustration of Europcar Lab seizing market opportunities is Europcar’s recent acquisition of a majority stake, alongside the founders, in Ubeeqo, a French start-up specialising in car-sharing and pioneer and leader of the business market.
Also, Europcar strengthens its corporate governance with the establishment of a Supervisory Board and a Management Board. The Management Board consists of Philippe Germond Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of Europcar Group, Caroline Parot, Chief Financial Officer, Ken McCall, MD of Europcar UK and Fabrizio Ruggiero, MD of Europcar Italy. The full governance, will be announced shortly.
