EVgo Names President; CTO and Chief Revenue Officer Exiting EV Charging Company

January 17, 2024 by Joe Panettieri

EVgo has named Chief Operating Officer Dennis Kish to the president post, while Chief Technology Officer Ivo Steklac and Chief Revenue Officer Tanvi Chaturvedi will depart the electric vehicle (EV) charging company.

The changes are designed to simplify and consolidate the company's business development, marketing and technology functions -- all of which now report to Kish, EVgo said. Steklac will serve as a strategic advisor to the company during a transition period and will depart during 2024 -- though exact timing was not disclosed. Chaturvedi is expected to remain in her role at EVgo through the end of February 2024, the company added.

Steklac has been with EVgo since 2018. Chaturvedi, a Google Nest veteran, has been with EVgo since Janury 2022.

EVgo Financial Performance: As part of the announcement, EVgo reinforced that it expects to meet or exceed the company's financial and operating goals for fiscal year 2023. But the company has not yet announced a specific date for disclosing those official financial results.

EVgo, founded in 2010, is based in Los Angeles, California. The company operates more than 950 fast charging locations across 35 states and 65 metropolitan areas. EVgo's partner program spans automakers, governments and utilities.

EV Charger Infrastructure and EV Automobile Sales: Market Headwinds, Challenges

The EVgo changes come amid challenging times for some EV charging infrastructure companies an EV automobile makers. Among the anecdotal market challenges to note:

Further complicating matters, rising interest rates in 2023 made it more expensive and/or cost prohibitive for some EV-focused businesses to finance corporate expansion this past year.

Still, the overall EV charging market remains in growth mode. Indeed, the EV charger market should reach about $123.04 billion in 2032, up from $35.47 billion in 2023, according to Custom Market Insights. That's a 27% compound annual growth rate (CAGR), the research firm said.
