TeraWatt appoints two new executives to lineup

Justin Turner was appointed chief revenue officer and West Owens was appointed chief financial officer.

TeraWatt Infrastructure has announced the appointment of Justin Turner as chief revenue officer and the promotion of West Owens, senior vice president of finance and structuring, to chief financial officer. The company says that Turner brings deep domain expertise to the role, having previously held the CRO role at Flock Freight, while Owens brings years of financial leadership experience in the energy and consumer finance sectors. The company says these appointments will support TeraWatt’s mission to build the nation’s first multi-state EV charging network for medium- and heavy-duty fleets.

At TeraWatt, Turner will oversee the global revenue, marketing and customer success functions as the company enters its next phase of growth. Bringing over a decade of leadership experience, the company says that Turner has grown organizational revenue over 20x in prior roles, and oversaw a variety of functions such as GTM strategy, sales, acquisition, retention and overall customer experience at logistics companies including Flock Freight, STORD, GlobalTranz and Coyote Logistics.

Owens joined TeraWatt in 2021 as senior vice president, finance and structuring. Taking on the role of CFO, Owens will be responsible for setting the financial reporting and capital strategy and execution for TeraWatt, including deal sourcing, structuring, diligence, negotiations, management, accounting, FP&A, operations and strategic advisory. Prior to TeraWatt, the company says he successfully advised multiple early-stage energy companies, including OhmConnect, Gradient and SunShare. As a former senior executive at multiple other companies, including SolarCity (acquired by Tesla), AMS and Future Family, Owens raised more than $2 billion in diversified capital.

As part of the White House’s EV Acceleration Challenge to support America’s historic transition to electric vehicles, TeraWatt says it recently committed to delivering one terawatt-hour of charging for light-, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles by 2025, which is equivalent to powering over 160,000 homes for a year.
