Rian will also join the Emerald Automotive management team, which has a wealth of experience in bringing low-volume vehicles to market, as Chief Financial Officer and Board Director.
“The Board and I would like to thank Rian for the fantastic job he has done as Chief Financial Officer of Intelligent Energy over the last five years. We owe him a debt of gratitude for his professionalism, dedication and the very significant contribution he has made to Intelligent Energy’s growth,” said Intelligent Energy Chief Executive, Dr Henri Winand. “Intelligent Energy continues to make tremendous progress on a number of fronts in the field of low emission vehicles, most recently forming a joint venture company with the Suzuki Motor Corporation in Japan to develop and mass manufacture fuel cell systems.”
“After five years in which I have seen Intelligent Energy grow rapidly in terms of turnover, key target markets and its position as a leading clean power systems company, I am delighted to have the opportunity to now lead IE Low Emission Vans while remaining part of the Intelligent Energy family,” commented Rian Urding, Chief Executive Officer of IE Low Emission Vans.
