Traffic information provider INRIX, who was initially focusing on the United States showed in the last six months strong ambitions in Europe. So far the European business has been managed remotely from the U.S. by Kush Parikh, INRIX vice president of business development (read more here). It seems the time is now ripe for launching a proper local organization headed by a European figure with connections in the navigation business. Hans-Hendrik Puvogel, the new general manager at INRIX Europe will take part in a panel about connected services at the Canalys Navigation Forum next week in Budapest.

Before joining Jentro, Mr. Puvogel was working as managing partner for KMC Consultants (2003-2006), a Germany-based management consultancy company. Prior to this he spent several years in the publishing business working for Handlesblatt (1997-2000), the Bertelsmann group (1995-1997) and Optimad Media System in London (2000-2003).
