Evida Power, a leading designer and manufacturer of lithium-ion battery packs for electric vehicles (EVs), has announced the appointment of David Roberts as executive chairman of the Board.
Roberts’ appointment aims to support the management team’s efforts to capitalise on the growing demand for Evida’s products and services and to prepare the company for further expansion.
Roberts joins Evida with a wealth of automotive experience gained during a career that has spanned more than 30 years, primarily in the manufacturing sector. His strong track record of achievement includes the successful turnaround of Chrysler UK and its sale to the PSA Group, and the development and implementation of a complete quality assurance strategy at Aston Martin.
Roberts has also served as executive chairman for a wide ranging portfolio of global companies including Parsons Peebles, GB Federal, Soda Club and the Trimite Group.
In his new role, he will be responsible for developing and implementing strategy, ensuring operational and production stability and optimisation of resources.
The expansion of the leadership team comes in response to a growing demand from OEMs for Evida’s battery pack and integration solutions, and the company’s desire to expand its product portfolio and develop new businesses.
