Based in New York, Gigi plays a crucial role in the development of the Modular Vehicle and Drivetrain System (MVDS), which consists of four core hardware modules and two software/OS modules. This system is designed to prioritize aesthetics, minimalism, and the use of sustainable materials, setting it apart from conventional automotive designs that often rely on standardized components and toxic materials. Gigi’s responsibilities extend to overseeing technology and intellectual property development partnerships with various mobility and engineering companies located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Gigi works closely with key team members at Olympian Motors, including Eren, the CEO and Chief Architect, and other department leads, contributing to the company’s goal of capturing 7% of the U.S. automotive market by 2030. Under Gigi’s leadership, the company has achieved significant reductions in tooling, machinery, fitment, and labor costs, and has notably faster production lead times compared to traditional automakers. This efficiency is part of Olympian Motors’ broader strategy to bring high-quality, aesthetically pleasing electric vehicles to market more quickly and sustainably.
