Richard Staveley, CEO of EO Charging.

Staveley takes the lead at EO Charging while Charlie Jardine, president and founder, pursues growth opportunities in the United States.

EO Charging, a global pioneer in electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions for depot-based fleets, announced today the appointment of Richard Staveley as its new CEO. Founder Charlie Jardine will transition to the role of president and founder. Jardine plans to relocate to the United States later this year to focus on expanding 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 position EO excellently to advance our goals and further solidify our presence as the go-to partner for fleet electrification globally," Jardine said.

Staveley's appointment is set to leverage EO Charging's strong foundation, supported by strategic investments from Zouk Capital and Vortex Energy; the company received an $80 million investment round in February 2023. 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 United Kingdom's public charging e-mobility sector.

With Staveley as CEO and Jardine on the ground in the United States, they are expected to drive the company's mission of expanding its fleet charging solution business in North America and across Europe while maintaining its 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 gains momentum within the EV charging infrastructure sector.

"I am delighted to take on the CEO role at such a pivotal time for the EV charging industry. 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. I am excited to lead the company through its next phase of development, focusing on innovation, charging-as-a-service, and market expansion," Staveley said.

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