Iranian born Houshangi is coming to Think from McKinsey & Co and will take charge of Think's expansion to new market, in Asia, the Americas and Europe. Eivind Garshol on the other hand will take charge of Think's Human Resources department. Both of them will be working from Think's Oslo headquarters.
“We are growing really fast as an international operation, and we need the best corporate talent available to guide and manage this expansion around the world – I think we have this and more in Houtan and Eivind,” Think's CEO Richard Canny said in a statement.
Personal changes and additions aside, Think and BBC completed earlier this week the 4,500-mile (7,242 km), 12-country European tour which started about a month ago.
The car was driven by presenter Peter Curran, who was accompanied by his three-member crew. They traveled from London to Denmark, then Norway, Sweden, Austria, Germany, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and back to England.
The Think City Car, the electric city car which has already won the hearts of some European customers, can achieve a top speed of only 100 km/hour (62 mph) and sprints from naught to 100 in 6.5 seconds. During summer and with the heater off, Think can travel in between 170 km (105 miles) and 203 km (126 miles).
