Philippe Desnos joins Ecobat Battery Technologies
In order to spearhead the transition from its existing individual business units to become Ecobat Battery Technologies, parent company Ecobat Technologies and the Ecobat group has recruited Philippe Desnos as vice-president and managing director of the new pan-European entity.
Desnos brings considerable aftermarket experience with him to this new role at Ecobat Battery Technologies. His career within the automotive industry began with his appointment as engineering manager at Lucas in 1995. Desnos moved to Delphi in 2002 and held a number of positions there, most recently that of president of Delphi Product and Service Solutions, a post held since January 2014. Ecobat states that this aftermarket experience makes Desnos the “ideal candidate to steer Ecobat Battery Technologies as it follows its strategic course and develops into Europe’s number one battery partner.”
“Taking the helm at this exciting time is both a great privilege and an opportunity, as we have to ensure that the existing businesses, all of which have operated very successfully within the wider group, continue to grow from their excellent foundations,” comments Desnos. “In order to allow them to do so, we are developing our partnership philosophy, which brings multiple benefits across all our business relationships from supplier to manufacturer to recycler, but, most significantly, to our customers, who will continue to be our primary concern and therefore, our most important partners.”
In addition to his workplace experience, Philippe holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Warwick Business School in the UK, a Master’s degree in Automotive Systems from ESTACA University in France and a further Master’s degree in Engine Management Systems from Paris 6 University. He also speaks French, English and German.
