A new leader for Ecobat

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 has good aftermarket pedigree, having worked for a number of prominent companies within the automotive industry beginning with Lucas in 1995, followed by Lucas TRW and then Delphi where, since 2013, he has been president of the aftermarket operation.

This experience in the global aftermarket makes Desnos a good candidate to steer Ecobat Battery Technologies as it follows its strategic course.

“Taking the helm at this exciting time is both a great privilege and an opportunity,” said Desnos. “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. 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.”
