I have been passionate about “New Mobility” since I met Sue Zielinski and became part of SMART in 2005. Subsequent meetings and forums helped reinforce that I really love the thought leaders, academics and entrepreneurs involved in this work. I find it inspiring to see how these minds work, and the ideas they come up with.
