UITP is pleased to announce that Mohamed Mezghani has been elected as the organisation’s new Secretary General.
Mr. Mezghani – serving as Deputy Secretary General for four years - will replace Mr. Alain Flausch who will retire in December after six years.
Mr. Mezghani has more than 25 years of experience in the public transport and urban mobility related sectors. Since joining UITP in 1999, Mr. Me zghani has held a variety of positions ranging from Senior Manager and Director of the Knowledge and Membership Services department to Adviser and Deputy Secretary General.
Mr. Flausch welcomed the choice of his successor, insisting that Mohamed Mezghani is an excellent person to lead UITP: “He knows the organisation, he knows the public transport ecosystem and he certainly knows what are the next steps for UITP to keep developing as the international reference in the sector.”
Mr Mezghani is delighted toaccept the position: “I am honoured to have been chosen to take this role and I want to thank Alain for the devotion and vision he had as Secretary General”. UITP is a leading organisation in sustainable mobility, with talented professionals that are always focused on the needs of our members. I look forward to continue working with the team at UITP in expanding our membership to better represent all regions and sectors.”
Mr. Flausch will remain Secretary General until January 2018 and will then ensure the smooth transition of power to Mr. Mezghani during the preceding months.
