Andrew Lawson joins EO Charging as director of fleet and Gary Parker joins as head of public sector and bid management.

Lawson has spent 18 years at Mercedes-Benz Vans and has most recently held the position of sales director for the company. EO said he has led his team to secure business with customers such as Amazon and the United States Postal Service.

EO said Lawson brings experience to drive EO’s fleet sales globally and further develop its customer base, which includes the likes of Amazon, DHL, and Tesco.

Having spent the past 10 years in various roles within the EV sector, Parker joins EO from BP Pulse, where he led the public sector team on all local authority contracts, such as D2N2, the concession based DBO public charging network contract.

Charlie Jardine, chief executive officer of EO, said: “As more and more companies look to seize the benefits of an EV fleet, our comprehensive charging solutions have become a critical ally to fleet managers.

“In his new role as director of fleet, Andy will be an asset to both new and existing EO customers, supporting their transition to an EV fleet with our best-in-class charging ecosystem.

“Gary joins us to expand our public sector offering. Our full-stack charging solution makes us the perfect partner for both businesses and governments, and Gary’s experience working with local authorities and public sector organisations across the UK brings vital expertise to our growing team.

“Andy and Gary will help EO accelerate its mission to become the go-to provider of fleet charging solutions globally.”

EO’s team of nearly 200 employees is set to expand in 2022.

EO deploys electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, hardware-agnostic cloud-based software, electrical installation, grid upgrades and ongoing service and maintenance for fleets.
