Tritium DCFC Limited, a global developer and manufacturer of direct current fast chargers for electric vehicles (EVs), have announced the appointment of Glen Casey as the company’s new Chief Operating Officer (COO).
With over 20 years of executive experience across automotive, energy and engineering manufacturing, Casey will step into this role after serving as Tritium’s Interim Director of Global Operations since May 2021.
Prior to joining Tritium, Glen Casey held senior leadership roles in several large, complex manufacturing businesses including Philips, Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) and Nylex Limited, where he was involved in major transformations and operational improvement in Australia, Asia and Europe.
Jane Hunter, Tritium CEO, said: “Tritium has a technology advantage with world-leading DC fast chargers and, in this challenged supply chain environment, we require an experienced operations leader with a proven track record who can successfully navigate manufacturing complexity and enable the Company to meet strong market demand.”
“With Glen onboard, we gain a leader who has been with the company for nearly a year and in that time hit production records. Glen has the knowledge and real-world experience to help Tritium globally scale our manufacturing operations and continue to optimise and mature those processes.”
In his role as COO, Casey will oversee company-wide operational performance, global supply and product distribution and customer support services as Tritium continues its global expansion. The new COO holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Swinburne University of Technology.
Glen Casey, Tritium COO, said: “I’m thrilled to be joining Tritium at such an exciting time for the Company and industry. I believe the future of transportation is electric and Tritium has uniquely positioned itself for sustainable, global expansion and ascendancy.
“I look forward to working alongside the Company’s impressive management, board of directors and staff to capitalise on the opportunities that lie ahead in this rapidly maturing e-mobility industry.”
Last month, Tritium joined President Biden at the White House to announce the Company’s new US manufacturing facility in Lebanon, Tennessee. This new facility is expected to employ more than 500 people over the next five years. Plus, it will produce more than 10,000 DC fast charger units per year, with the potential to produce approximately 30,000 units per year at peak capacity.
