Tantalum Corporation has appointed Ozgur Tohumcu as its chief executive officer to help develop its position as a leading provider of connected car technology.
The company's end-to-end ecosystem of services is underpinned by a global billing and payment platform, Pay.Car, and integrates insurance, crash detection, roadside assistance, parking and accident management services.
Tohumcu joins Tantalum from Ericsson, where he was the vice-president, IT and cloud, responsible for Western & Central Europe.
The move sees the current CEO, Cédriane de Boucaud Truell, take the position of president while also remaining on the board as a key investor director.
Ian Drew, chairman of the board at Tantalum, said: “Ozgur's vast experience across the technology landscape and a deep understanding of the potential for the connected car will be key to growing our international footprint."
