Movin’On Conference Adds 9 CEOs in New Governance Structure

With this year’s Movin'On theme as “Connect,” Michelin announced it would be sharing governance of the Movin’On platform with CEOs from nine other international companies, with a goal of “bringing Movin’On to the next level to enhance its impact and reach.”

“It brings together companies as well as personalities who are convinced, as I myself am, that mobility is a factor of progress,” he said. “We will work together to make it sustainable and inclusive. This new governance is a major step in the development of Movin’On.”

MIchelin said the governance will set Movin’On’s strategic directions, facilitate co-innovation and experimentation of new solutions, as well as the establishment of new partnerships.

Rodolphe Saadé, chairman and CEO, CMA CGM, speaks with Asha Sumputh, CNBC journalist and the event’s emcee, during the opening ceremony of the 2021 Movin’On Conference on June 2.

Menegeux said that as a united front, the Movin’On governance team believes that “mobility is at the heart of human development. It is essential for our societies and acts as a force of progress.” He encouraged all Movin’On participants to connect and innovate together and use the Movin’On platform to explore tomorrow’s sustainable solutions and partnerships.
