The Electric Vehicle (EV) charge point manufacturer, Evolt has appointed Myles Barker as Business Development Manager.
He will be working with government funding schemes to help councils and private sector businesses to buy, install and maintain new EV charging equipment.
Myles is well known in the EV industry for his work 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 from start to completion 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.
Having worked with more than 15 different borough, district and county councils, Myles has a track record that includes helping to develop Wiltshire County Council’s ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV) strategy, and project consultancy to assist the London Borough of Hackney find sites for, and install on-street rapid charge points.
He also helped five different vehicle OEMs including Daimler, Nissan, Renault, Toyota and Vauxhall to install charging infrastructure in the Midlands.
Justin Meyer, General Manager for Evolt, part of APT Controls, says Myles’ appointment is a real coup for the company explaining, “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.
“By appointing Myles we have secured a specialist with a proven track record and considerable knowledge of the industry, and who is already incredibly well respected.”
