FTEX, a pioneer in GaN-based precision motor control and connected systems for small electric vehicles, is proud to announce the appointment of Alfredo Perez Pellicer as a member of the board of directors. Effective immediately, Perez Pellicer will take a leading role on the board bringing his extensive experience in the e-bike industry, and contributing his passion for the company’s technology and vision.
Perez Pellicer is one of the co-founders of Ebikemotion, which became MAHLE SmartBike Systems following the acquisition by MAHLE, a leading company in the automotive industry. He brings with him a wealth of experience and a proven track record of success in bringing e-bike systems to market.
