VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, MI--Nov. 6, 2013: Ricardo, Inc., a multi-industry consultancy for engineering, technology, project innovation and strategy, announced today that the company's president, Thomas Apostolos, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA), the US industry association that promotes electric drive technologies and infrastructure. The appointment serves to strengthen the offering to clients of both organizations, by bringing together Ricardo's technology expertise with EDTA's collaborative goal of ensuring economic competitiveness, environmental sustainability, and energy security.

"EDTA is a natural fit for Ricardo," says Mr. Apostolos. "Ricardo has been challenging convention in the transportation and energy industries for almost a century, which is exactly what is required to meet EDTA's goals. I look forward to working with EDTA's distinguished board members in this highly dynamic industry."

Ricardo has been the technology lead on several hybrid and hybrid-electric vehicle programs, and has designed and built several vehicle demonstrators showcasing various EV and HEV applications. One of those vehicles, the HyBoost, was recently awarded the Prize for the Environment by the Automobile Division of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. This technical expertise, combined with that of the other members, will aid in establishing a unified voice to policymakers and the public.

"Ricardo enjoys a long standing reputation as an industry leader that has made a lasting, global impact in transportation and energy sectors, and the company is consistently producing results that advance electric drive," said EDTA President Brian Wynne. "We are excited to welcome Ricardo as our newest member, and Mr. Apostolos' expertise will be invaluable to our Board as we work towards the goal of electrified transportation."
