He will draw from his more than 18 years of experience to lead Keolis’ efforts in building smart, sustainable mobility solutions including: the modernization of transit systems; the development of new modes of transportation, such as microtransit, autonomous on-demand shuttles; and the introduction of new digital solutions.

Since 2011, he has worked in the U.S., Europe and Asia designing and implementing emerging mobility innovations such as autonomous vehicles in France and leading Mobility as a Service initiatives in Helsinki and Manchester, UK.
