Joining the company as Chief Innovation Officer is Andre J. Champagne, founder and former CEO of Hollywood Trucks. Mr. Champagne will be responsible for driving product development and market development through innovation.

As founder of Hollywood Trucks, Mr. Champagne built a company dedicated to providing the entertainment industry with state-of-the-art and eco-friendly logistics and transportation services. During his tenure, Mr. Champagne’s innovations led to the world’s first “off-grid” trailers, called Ecoluxe, which obtained multiple patents and global recognition.

“I chose to join Blue Duck Scooters because I am very excited about micro-mobility, which is poised to change the world and transform economies. Our children will not look at cars as we do today; micro-mobility is the future of transportation,” said Mr. Champagne.
