NGVA Europe Appoints New Secretary General
The Board of Directors of NGVA Europe has appointed Andrea Gerini, formerly of Centro Ricerche Fiat (CRF), as the new Secretary General of NGVA Europe, effective March 1.
Mr Gerini, who was Head of Collaboration and Strategic Programs Area for the Powertrain Department at Centro Ricerche Fiat in Italy, has experience and solid technical expertise in the sector of natural gas and other alternative fuels. He holds a degree on Mechanical engineering and during the years he took different positions dealing with the R&D programs addressing the engine technologies development and the use of alternative fuels.
“Mr. Gerini’s considerable experience with CRF’s Powertrain Department will significantly benefit the cooperation between NGVA Europe and NGV Global as we seek to promote natural gas fuel for transportation,” said NGV Global Executive Director, Diego Goldin. “We very much look forward to welcoming Mr. Gerini at our Board meeting to be held as part of NGV Global 2017 in Rotterdam, now only three weeks away.”
NGVA Europe looks forward to continue paving the road to sustainable mobility by highlighting the important role that the use of gas in transport can play and will keep working closely with European policy makers, the NGV industry, gas companies and vehicle operators.
Andrea Gerini succeeds Matthias Maedge, who will now act as the General Delegate of IRU (International Road Union) Brussels Delegation.
