Houston, TX — The CarSharing Association announced today Emily Fleck has been named as its new Executive Director, effective today, April 5th, 2016.
Emily Fleck is a long time veteran of the shared mobility industry, with deep experience in industry operations and technology through her work at PhillyCarShare of Philadelphia (acquired by Enterprise Holdings in 2011) and Metavera Solutions of Toronto (acquired by Enterprise Holdings in 2015). Her most recent work was with movmi Shared Transportation Services of Vancouver BC, where she provided marketing, business development, and operations consulting work.
“While still at PhillyCarShare in 2010 I was deeply involved with the group of organizations writing the charter of what would become the CSA,” said Fleck, speaking from her current hometown of Houston, Texas. “I’m thrilled to be now leading the association I helped bring into existence.”
“Emily has extensive experience in car sharing both as an operator and a vendor,” said Megan Hansen, Interim Board Chair of the Carsharing Association and Program Manager of HOURCAR in the Twin Cities. “She helped guide HOURCAR through some difficult transitions and always provided very thorough and knowledgeable advice. I’m very excited to welcome Emily to the Carsharing Association, and look forward to working with her to grow our membership worldwide.”
Among Fleck’s first tasks will be reaching out and re-acquainting with the CSA’s current membership as well as launching preparations for the 2016 CarSharing Association Conference, to be held later this year.
“I LOVE attending the CSA annual conference. It provides us with a unique opportunity to learn how to implement new trends directly from the people creating them,” said Diego Solórzano of Carrot Carsharing from Mexico City, also a member of the Carsharing Association’s Board.
The Carsharing Association annual conference is an exciting event that draws attendees from around the word. Location and dates for the 2016 conference will be announced soon.
