Managing Partner, New Mobility Consulting
Jochen (Joe) Renz is an Electronics Engineer from Stuttgart, Germany (Home of Mercedes, Bosch, Porsche, etc), and now resides in Chicago, USA. After a 20-year corporate IT career, he co-founded New Mobility Consulting with his brother Alexander (Alex). Simply put, cars and IT are in their blood.
We understand the car as an important building block in the future of multi-modal mobility. However, much of disruptive innovation happens in the form of solutions around the car and in the broader mobility ecosystem. Alex and Joe go far beyond the car itself and take a holistic view of the emerging smart mobility and transportation space aka New Mobility World®.
KNOW THE DRILL
Mobility is transforming, not only itself but our behaviours, cities and economies too. Ted Levitt’s much-quoted mantra that “people don't want to buy a quarter-inch drill, they want a quarter-inch hole” is useful in that it succinctly sums up the philosophy behind the changes that the automotive industry is witnessing today.
