Addition strengthens voice-of-customer at EV charging infrastructure company

PALO ALTO, CA, March 28, 2024 – Voltera, a leading developer, owner, and operator of charging and refueling infrastructure for zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) fleets, is pleased to announce the appointment of Marie Robinson to its Board of Directors, effective immediately.

Marie Robinson brings extensive experience in supply chain, logistics, and operational excellence from her distinguished career, most recently serving as EVP and Chief Supply Chain Officer for Sysco. In this role, she led global supply chain operations across 353 distribution centers, managing over 20,000 associates with P&L accountability, and played a crucial role in the electrification of Sysco's truck fleet as part of their corporate social responsibility strategy. Her expertise in driving operational efficiency and scaling infrastructure solutions will be invaluable to Voltera as the company continues to expand its portfolio of zero-emission vehicle refueling facilities across the United States.

"Marie's deep understanding of the logistics and supply chain challenges faced by fleets transitioning to zero-emission vehicles is a perfect match for Voltera's mission," said Matt Horton, CEO of Voltera. "Her strategic vision, proven track record, and significant contributions to supply chain transformation and sustainability initiatives will be instrumental in guiding Voltera's growth and enhancing our capabilities to support the electrification of transportation at scale."

Robinson's appointment comes at a time when Voltera is accelerating its efforts to deploy critical charging infrastructure necessary for the widespread adoption of zero-emission vehicles.
