“Domestic charging in the UK is becoming ever more prevalent, and as the adoption of electric vehicles is increasing, we need to ensure we have the best team in place to support the rise in demand. Gary is a well-respected figure in the automotive sector and brings a wealth of valuable and highly relevant experience to the role.
“This is an ideal time to grow our market presence as the UK is on the precipice of mass adoption of EVs. With Gary on board, we will have laser-sharp focus on Andersen EV’s growth strategy in the UK and beyond by maximising our relationships with OEMs and dealer groups.”
