Hyzon Motors Inc. has announced that Dr. Bappa Banerjee has been named chief operating officer (COO), effective May 1. As the company’s first chief operating officer, the company says Banerjee will oversee Hyzon Motors’ global operations, manufacturing, engineering, commercial and end-to-end supply chain. In this role, Hyzon says Banerjee will “lead the operations team to ensure the delivery of high-quality products to customers and provide strategic direction for Hyzon’s continued growth as the company develops and delivers hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles throughout its markets.”

Hyzon says Banerjee has more than two decades of experience leading operations, engineering and commercial functions for global companies including GE Transportation, a Wabtec Co. and Caterpillar. Throughout his career, Banerjee has held full profit and loss responsibilities at multi-billion-dollar top-line businesses and demonstrated a proven track record of growing sales across international markets while reducing costs through the implementation of lean manufacturing processes, Hyzon says.

This included developing battery and fuel cell electric solutions, purpose-built to meet the needs of the challenging, harsh mining environment.
