CIO of Park My Fleet, Kristin Slanina, Discusses the State of Electric Vehicle Technology

Kristin SlaninaOur first guest is Kristin Slanina, Leader, Expert, Visionary, and CIO of Park My Fleet, which builds staffed mobility hubs for fleet vehicles. The state of electric vehicle (EV) technology and its relationship with consumers require data points no one had. She orchestrated and led five teams to compete in driving electric vehicles from NY to LA for a 10-day televised production. Kristin, at the wheel of a Tesla, traveled alongside various teams, each equipped with a distinct electric vehicle, covering a total distance of 3300 miles. She takes the story and “EV 101” on the road, speaking to audiences from CFOs to dealers and resellers. This past summer, Kristin traveled Europe, encountering many EV charging issues.  So, she investigated and explored the benefits of super apps, a type of software that is all about efficiency.

Just imagine landing anywhere and immediately being able to pull up an app that can give you all of the related electric vehicle charging information and route information you could possibly need. Her stint as COO of TrueCar, an online portal for car-buying for consumers and a network of over 10K certified dealers, developed during a highly competitive recruiting process, where she was referred to as the “purple squirrel” for her unique pedigree as a core engine engineer. Her “future-of-mobility” expertise, consumer-fulfillment strategies, and savvy business leadership made her an ideal experiment for TrueCar.  For more information go to: kristinslanina.com.
