Vulog, a provider of carsharing technology, has named Gregory Duconge as its new CEO. Vulog offers in-car technology, a software platform, and mobile applications.

Following an 8.4 million euros ($9.55 million) growth financing in 2015 from Ecotechnologies Fund (managed by Bpifrance) and London-based Environmental Technologies Fund, Duconge will be responsible for leading the company into the next stage of its growth, according to Vulog.

“I am very happy to welcome Gregory as the new CEO of VULOG,” said Georges Gallais, Vulog’s co-founder and director of innovation. “He is bringing fantastic experience from the tech industry as well as knowledge of the global market.”

Duconge previously served as chief financial officer for the Powertrain Systems Business Group at Valeo, an automotive supplier. Between 2009 and 2013, he served as chief operating officer of Miyowa, a mobile networking and messaging software business that was sold to a large American technology company in 2012.

“Vulog is a recognized technology leader in the rapidly-growing carsharing industry, and I am very happy to have the opportunity to join the company as CEO at such a pivotal moment,” Duconge said. “I am excited to work alongside Georges and the team at VULOG, establishing VULOG as a key player in new generation carsharing worldwide.”
