The company says John Walsh brings over three decades of experience in transit and school bus electrification solutions.

EO Charging, a European provider of software, maintenance services, design and construction for depot-based van, truck and bus fleets, announced that John Walsh has joined the company as chief commercial officer of its Americas business. The company says Walsh brings more than three decades of experience in the transportation industry to the company, with expertise in transit and school bus electrification solutions. Walsh will lead all commercial aspects of EO’s Americas business to support the company’s recently announced expansion into the U.S. market.

Walsh began advising EO in March of 2023. Prior to that, he served as the chief commercial officer of Proterra Inc., a heavy-duty electric transportation company, leading the Powered, Transit, and Energy divisions’ growth efforts. Walsh held the titles of president and chief operating officer of Davey Coach Sales, Inc., and president of the REV Group. Walsh has also served as vice president of sales and marketing at ARBOC Specialty Vehicles and CEO of VPG Autos. He spent over two decades at National Bus & Sales Leasing, Inc., where, as president, he grew the business from a local dealership into a national entity.

Walsh joins a growing EO Charging Americas team led by President Austin Hausmann, formerly of Chanje and Smith Electric Vehicles, who brings over 13 years of dedicated commercial EV OEM leadership to the company.

REE Automotive, an automotive technology company and provider of full-by-wire electric trucks and platforms, reported its financial results and operational highlights for the three months ending March 31.

According to the results, the first quarter Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), calculated by subtracting total expenses from total revenue, narrowed by 29% quarter on quarter (QoQ) to $25.2 million compared to $35.2 million in Q4 2023 and narrowed by 12% year-over-year (YoY) compared to $28.6 million in Q1 2023. REE said the YoY decrease was mainly driven by operational efficiencies implemented, which reduced payroll and related costs and other operational expenses, as well as lower share-based compensation expenses. These decreases were partially offset by losses from remeasurement of warrants and financial expenses related to convertible notes as well as an increase in income tax expenses. The decrease compared to the previous quarter was mainly attributed to the increased non-recurring engineering development costs in Q4 2023.
