Giorgio RizzoniGiorgio RizzoniGiorgio Rizzoni, director of Ohio State's Center for Automotive Research, has been appointed to the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) COMVEC™ Executive Council. 

The Executive Council advises and guides SAE in the planning and organization of COMVEC™ including selecting keynote speakers and panelists and organizing panel discussions and technical sessions. The council is composed primarily of commercial vehicle industry executives. The Ohio State University is one of only two universities on the council, the other being Virginia Tech.

COMVEC™ is the only event in North America that addresses vehicles and equipment spanning the on-highway, off-highway, agricultural, construction, industrial, military and mining sectors. The events content is driven by the need to reduce CO2 emissions and improve vehicle efficiencies for fuel savings and covers the latest and critical need-to-know information affecting global commercial vehicles today and in the future.

“It’s an honor to be appointed to the COMVEC™ Executive Council,” said Rizzoni. It recognizes the fact that CAR is deeply engaged in research topics that are highly relevant to the commercial vehicle industry. We have a number of partners in this industry; it makes perfect sense for us to be involved, and it is an honor to have been invited to be a part of this prestigious group.”
