Geotab appoints Christoph Ludewig as VP OEM Europe

Smart Transport member Geotab has appointed Christoph Ludewig as vice president OEM, Europe, with immediate effect.

Ludewig, previously Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services CEO, will help expand and leverage the fleet teletmatics and connected transport provider's relationships and business with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

He will also work closely with the company’s existing management team to help accelerate growth by supporting Geotab’s overall business development in Europe.

Within the last two years, Geotab has entered into partnerships with OEMs including Ford, General Motors and Mercedes-Benz. It is also recently developed a digital key platform that can make any vehicle with a key fob shareable.

In his new role, Ludewig will support the continuous development of customised OEM solutions. 

Edward Kulperger, senior vice president EMEA at Geotab, said: “We are thrilled to officially welcome Christoph Ludewig, a proven and passionate OEM industry and connected mobility expert to the Geotab team.

"With Christoph at the helm, we are in a solid position to strengthen our relationships with Europe’s leading automotive manufacturers as we continue to build on our commitment of providing world class products to the fleet and mobility ecosystem together with our OEM partners and platform.”

Ludewig added: “Connected, data-rich vehicles are the future of mobility and I have seen first-hand the benefits that Geotab’s open platform and integrated telematics offering can bring to customers.

“I am delighted to join Geotab to not only share my wealth of expertise in order to help grow the company’s OEM division in Europe but also to help reaffirm Geotab’s commitment working collaboratively with vehicle manufacturers around the world who are committed to ensuring that their end-customers have access to the data-driven insights that they need.”
