Fulcrum has expanded its Electric Vehicle infrastructure solutions team as it continues to support the roll out of a comprehensive UK EV charging network.
In response to the UK government’s net-zero target, which will see an end to the sale of new petrol and diesel cars in the UK by 2030, the listed Sheffield-based based multi-utility infrastructure and services provider has experienced a significant increase in enquiries and demand for its specialist EV charging infrastructure capabilities and has bolstered its business development team to support further growth.
The latest additions to the team, are experienced EV sector professionals, Helen Fox-Walker and Zuber Patel.
Ms Fox-Walker, having spent the majority of her career working with multi-site SME and Industrial & Commercial customers, will focus on commercial installation projects including fleet transition, and destination charging solutions.
She developed her expertise in the EV sector with EON Drive and Arcadis, supporting the roll out of ultra-fast chargers nationally and providing consultancy services to support the electrification of organisations with large vehicle fleets.
Mr Patel brings a wealth of experience from the EV charging industry to Fulcrum, having been at the forefront of the charging sector in a business development role with charge point operator Alfa Power. In that time, he delivered contracts with clients including local authorities, golf clubs, schools, hotels, independent landowners and a forecourt operator with more than 900 UK sites.
As part of his role with Fulcrum, he will deliver workplace and residential charging infrastructure projects.
“The drive towards EV, led by the government’s net-zero strategy, has created a significant increase in demand for our services,” said Andy Hirst, Group Director of Business Development.
“We are continually developing our capabilities and expertise to support the roll out of a UK-wide EV charging network, and Helen and Zuber, who are fantastic additions to our team and are both highly-experienced in the sector, will help us support our growing portfolio of customers.”
