EV charging company Indra has appointed Leighton King as its first Chief Commercial Officer. With an established track record of over 20 years’ experience within the automotive and marine industry, the appointment of King is just one of a number of key moves the company is making as part of its ambitious growth plans.

Leighton said: “Indra is the global leader in the development of pioneering electric vehicle charging technology. Today, Indra has the world’s smartest and most reliable EV charger, plus it is extremely simple to use. In the future we will bring products and services to the market that will completely transform the energy ecosystem surrounding electric vehicle charging.
“Indra is committed to helping drivers save time and money when making the switch to EV, and I am excited about doing all of this within a business that is passionate about the need to accelerate the switch towards clean energy solutions.
“Technology such as ours is key to ensuring that switching to an EV is cleaner, greener AND cheaper!”
