David Arsenault is the president and one of the co-founders of Effenco, a pioneer in the electrification and connectivity of heavy-duty vocational vehicles. In 2006, shortly after completing his master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, he and two other students founded Effenco. David’s vision was to improve the energy efficiency of these heavy-duty trucks; the least efficient segment in the transportation industry and one of the largest sources of air pollution. Today, thanks to their unique and patented technology based on ultracapacitors, Effenco develops solutions that make it possible to achieve the complete electrification of these heavy-duty vehicles. Before starting his own company, David worked for jet engine manufacturer Pratt & Witney.
