MILAN, July 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — hlpy, the Italian start-up that is reshaping the world of roadside assistance, announces the appointment of Stefano Sarti. The former Managing Director of ARC Europe Group, the largest mobility assistance network in Europe, has been newly appointed Managing Director International & Equity Partner in hlpy to foster the international scale up, flanking the founders Valerio Chiaronzi, Graziano Cavallo and Enrico Noseda. Sarti will take up the position as of August 2022 and will develop hlpy’s network in the main European markets and beyond.
Sarti holds a Master’s degree in Business and Economics from the Universities of Turin and Aix-en-Provence and more than 20 years of Executive leadership trajectory in the Automotive and International Automotive Assistance sector. He began his career at FIAT and soon after took on various international assignments for different brands such as Targa Service.

The onboarding of Stefano in hlpy truly confirms the appeal of our business model as a tangible opportunity for the mobility ecosystem to innovate and set new standards,” said Valerio Chiaronzi, hlpy Founder and CEO.

I’m extremely proud to be part of this challenge to strengthen my entrepreneurial origins along with a group of people I highly admire and respect,” said Stefano Sarti.
