Under the leadership of CEO and co-founder Kenneth Herschel, Viggo has rapidly risen to prominence in Denmark. Now, the company is the country’s third-largest taxi company exclusively operating EVs. Additionally, Viggo has captured a significant market share in urban areas with its ultra-rapid charging stations. These are tailored to the needs of professional drivers and fleet customers.

Herschel commented:

“Kim Meikel has substantial expertise in supporting the growth of infrastructure companies by raising capital and securing infrastructure financing. His skills will be key as we scale up our presence nationally and internationally, focusing on our rapid-charging business, where we aim to quadruple the number of charging points in 2024.”

Joining the new appointment news is Nikolaj Køster, as Chief Business Development Officer. Køster boasts extensive leadership experience at American mobility companies. He is poised to drive Viggo’s international expansion plans forward by establishing key partnerships.

Viggo has its sights set on a global scale. The company is actively preparing to establish ultra-rapid charging hubs in major European cities. Its first international station is slated to launch later this year.

Kim Meikel Rose shared his excitement:

“I’m excited to join Viggo as the company strategically pivots towards developing a leading public charging network for professionals.

Our distinctive edge lies in our ability to provide solutions specifically designed to meet the high demands of commercial fleets and urban business customers. This approach presents a uniquely de-risked investment proposition for infrastructure investors tapping into the global mega trend of electrifying mobility and commercial transportation.”

Since 2019, Viggo has evolved from an innovative EV-based taxi service to a frontrunner in ultra-fast charging infrastructure. The company has 315 cars and 315,000 users currently in its network. It aims to deploy 3,000 high-powered charging points across major European cities by 2030.

Viggo’s recent senior appointments and expansive vision underscore its commitment to driving forward the transition towards sustainable urban transportation solutions, making waves in the global e-mobility landscape.
