EO Charging, a global provider of electric vehicle charging solutions for depot-based fleets, has appointed Richard Staveley as its new CEO. Founder Charlie Jardine will transition to the role of president and founder.

Jardine will relocate to the US later this year to focus on growing EO’s presence in North America and other global markets.

"After 10 years of growing the business, it is a real privilege to hand over the CEO reins so I can focus on expanding the business globally. It is my pleasure to announce Richard Staveley as EO's new CEO. His leadership and strong investor backing place EO in an excellent position to advance our goals and further galvanize our presence as the go-to partner for fleet electrification globally," said Jardine.

EO Charging said Staveley’s appointment is poised to leverage its foundation, backed by strategic investments from Zouk Capital and Vortex Energy. The company received an $80 million investment funding in February 2023.

The company said Staveley is renowned for his transformative approach and success in driving growth within PE and VC-funded companies in the e-mobility, IoT, and telecommunications sectors. Currently, he serves as chairperson for Zest, an EV Charge Point Operator in the UK's public charging e-mobility sector.  

EO Charging said Staveley and Jardine will drive forward the company's mission of expanding its fleet charging solution business in North America and across Europe while maintaining the company’s position as a frontrunner in the fast-developing UK market.

This shift aligns with EO Charging's strategic aim to become the go-to partner in EV fleet charging globally as the adoption of zero-emission transportation continues to gain momentum within the EV charging infrastructure sector. 

"Leveraging our market position as a foundation for growth and with the support of our committed investors, we have a tremendous opportunity ahead of us. EO Charging is well-positioned and well-prepared to address the challenges and growing demands of this fast-expanding sector,” said Staveley.  “I am excited to lead the company through its next phase of development, focusing on innovation, charging-as-a-service, and market expansion.”

Over the past several years, EO has grown significantly and has now deployed over 85,000 chargers worldwide, and its customers include Amazon, DHL, Uber, and Tesco.

EO has made the Financial Times FT1000 the fastest-growing company for the third time, solidifying its disruptive position in the EV market.
