As the new Chief Growth Officer, former Tesla Director Peter Bardenfleth-Hansen will be responsible for the further growth and development of StreetScooter's international sales organisation and its innovative energy and logistics services. Former Ford Manager Ulrich Stuhec will be taking on the role of Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and driving product development and new platform and technology development, including autonomous driving. He will also be responsible for the China expansion of StreetScooter. The current CTO Fabian Schmitt will take on a new role in the company.

Jörg Sommer, CEO of StreetScooter GmbH, explained: “I'm delighted that we have succeeded in attracting two internationally experienced top managers from the automotive industry and the e-mobility sector to StreetScooter. I'm convinced that with Peter Bardenfleth-Hansen and Ulrich Stuhec joining us, we can pave the way for our company to enjoy successful international growth. Together we will maintain our market leadership in e-commercial vehicles and turn StreetScooter from a vehicle manufacturer into the leading energy and logistics platform for the last mile.”

Dane Peter Bardenfleth-Hansen was part of the first European Tesla team and was instrumental in transforming the company from a small start-up to a global heavyweight in electric vehicle production. In particular, he developed a number of key markets for Tesla, including Norway, Japan and the Middle East. Regarding his new role, he said: “Joining StreetScooter is in many ways my ideal progression in a quest to change the heart of mobility from fossil fuels to renewables. It was necessary to start that revolution by electrifying personal mobility but the real difference will not happen until the transportation of goods is 100% sustainable and particle pollution is out of our cities - and StreetScooter is leading that change.”

Ulrich Stuhec, who has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, played a key role in driving the development of autonomous vehicles at Ford Motor Company in the US. He can boast a total of 25 years' experience in automotive development at Ford in the US and Brazil, and at BMW in Munich. In a range of management positions, he has been involved in the development of numerous cars and trucks, SUVs and commercial vehicles for markets in the US, Europe, China, India, Brazil and Russia. He began his career in production planning and in-house consulting at BMW.

“I look forward to working with the StreetScooter engineering team to develop new products and fine-tune existing vehicle programs, to integrate leading-edge technologies and to help shape the company's amazing growth with the outstanding management team,” Stuhec said.
