Bannwil, 22 September 2022 - Car subscription pioneer Carvolution is bringing a heavyweight of the Swiss automotive industry on board with Morten Hannesbo. Hannesbo (59) is a Danish and Swiss dual citizen and was Vice President of auto-schweiz for 12 years and CEO of AMAG for over thirteen years. He led AMAG purposefully and successfully through digitalisation and several growth phases. Hannesbo has worked in the automotive industry for over 35 years, with experience in Germany, France, the UK, Austria, Switzerland and Denmark.
After stepping down as CEO of AMAG 2021, Hannesbo remains committed to the Swiss mobility and automotive industry with a focus on sustainability and, in addition to the new board mandate at Carvolution, also holds mandates at bicycle manufacturer Scott Corporation SA, KSU A-Technik AG and Swiss eMobility, where he acts as Vice Chairman.

In his new role as a board member at Carvolution, Hannesbo will support the young company with his expertise and extensive network to further accelerate its growth. Hannesbo explains his decision: "The mobility of the future will be much more sustainable, transparent and flexible, and our transport users will be connected. We will see enormous changes in the next ten years and at the same time people will be even more mobile than today. With my involvement in Carvolution, I want to contribute to this development."
The Carvolution founding team is delighted about the prominent expansion of the Board of Directors. Olivier Kofler, CEO and co-founder of Carvolution, emphasises: "Today, we have one of the largest fleets in Switzerland, and we need to continue to achieve very ambitious goals. Morten will ask us the right questions, challenge and encourage us, helping to make our plan a reality."
