Welcome back to eSpotlight, a series of guest blog posts written by companies in the California Mobility Center (CMC) ecosystem! Since we’ve announced our operational launch (yay!) and have opened our doors (virtually or socially distanced, of course), we wanted to give our Partners, Members, Clients, and Preferred Service Providers a chance to tell the story about our work together and what they bring to the future mobility table. We hope you enjoy this guest post by Derek Jones, Director of Mobility Solutions at Guidehouse.
In late 2020 we announced Guidehouse as one of our first preferred service providers. Guidehouse, a global consulting services firm, will help CMC Clients across a range of advisory, consulting, outsourcing, and digital services, creating scalable, innovative solutions that prepare Clients for future growth and success.
Accelerating Mobility Evolution
By Derek Jones, Director of Mobility Solutions, Guidehouse
At Guidehouse, we recently partnered with the CMC to help clients prepare for and thrive in the global mobility transformation. The evolution of powertrains that use fuels beyond petroleum and are increasingly connected, automated, and shared presents a universe of opportunity with limitless possibilities. We’re thrilled to be part of the CMC’s work in this space.
Headquartered in Northern California, the CMC uniquely sits alongside two key ecosystems in this universe: Sacramento’s policy influencers and Silicon Valley’s technology innovators. As global consumer demand grows for mobility solutions that also address climate, equity, and commercial needs, we’ve seen the value of dedicated venues offering tools, insights, and visibility for accelerating products and services through to commercialization.
The CMC’s multifaceted approach—technology demonstration, open-sourced standards development, evidence-based policy formation, and applied research—provides a venue equipped to foster diverse product and service acceleration that serves all market levels.
Guidehouse will bring CMC stakeholders our global mobility industry platform, along with expertise, data, and tools, powered by our experiences supporting private and public sector organizations across industries. By working shoulder-to-shoulder with the CMC, its Clients, and its Members, we look forward to fostering ground-breaking innovations in California that reverberate through markets around the world.
