Electric vehicle (EV) charging point manufacturer Evolt has appointed Myles Barker as its business development manager.
He will work with government funding schemes to help councils and private sector businesses to buy, install and maintain new EV charging equipment.
Barker has previously worked with councils and private businesses at Cenex (the centre of excellence for low carbon and fuel cell technologies), where he was the technical specialist working on the Plugged-in Midlands project for more than three years.
He also formed part of the secretariat for the UK Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Association (UK EVSE), where he wrote a charge point procurement guide for public and private sectors.
Justin Meyer, general manager for Evolt, part of APT Controls, said: “As councils increasingly focus on providing charge points for not only the public, but also the increasing number of council-owned and commercial electric vehicles, we want to be at the forefront of this demand."
