FISITA, the international federation for the automotive mobility engineering profession, welcomes international automotive supplier Continental as a corporate member to its Honorary Committee.
Continental joins over 60 other leading organisations from many of the most influential companies within the global automotive and mobility systems industry as part of the FISITA Honorary Committee. The select group works with FISITA in support of its mission to advance the development of safe, sustainable and affordable mobility solutions and support the global automotive engineering profession.
Chris Mason, FISITA CEO, said: “We are thrilled to welcome one of the leading international automotive brands to FISITA’s Honorary Committee. Continental was founded in 1871 and since then has built expertise in a range of specialism’s including tyres, automotive safety systems, connectivity and powertrain components, so it’s a pleasure to bring them on board to collaborate with our existing membership.”
“It’s an exciting time to be joining FISITA’s Honorary Committee as we have recently formed an Industry Committee for members that will support the international automotive industry in its transition to the mobility sector. This important group will provide valuable strategic direction to the broader FISITA membership and enable our corporate members to engage with their peers and collaborate on key issues as they create the mobility solutions of today and the future.”
“As the concept of mobility is currently being redefined, collaboration and knowledge sharing among stakeholders is essential. I am happy to serve on the Honorary Committee and look forward to working with the FISITA members to support the positive efforts of the organization and contribute to the development of safe, sustainable and affordable mobility solutions,” said Jeff Klei, President, Continental, North America.
Honorary Committee members are exclusively invited to attend and contribute towards FISITA’s global events and activities, and take the lead in developing and delivering the by-invitation technical leaders event, the World Automotive Summit.
