FORMER Nissan fleet director Peter McDonald has been appointed director for mobility at smart charging specialist Ohme.
Having extensive experience in fleet and the general automotive space, Peter McDonald has left Nissan after two years as fleet director, and moved to scale-up Ohme.
The smart EV charging firm has brought in McDonald to help grow the brand, expanding on existing relationships and building new ones with automotive clients.
Having spent 25 years working for OEMs, spending time at Volkswagen Group in the UK, China, and Germany, as well as six years with SEAT UK as head of fleet and business sales, McDonald enjoys an enviable reputation in the industry, having won multiple awards during his time with manufacturers.
At his most recent posting within Nissan, he helped to expand the company’s best-selling electric vehicle propositions with businesses and organisations, and was involved with the brand’s work in electrifying vehicles within fleets.
McDonald commented on his new position, saying: “I really enjoyed my time at Nissan, and, before that Volkswagen Group, but I couldn’t miss the opportunity to join Ohme, a scale-up in the Energy Technology field.
“As energy and mobility merge, I believe new innovative customer solutions will come to the fore to support both private and fleet customers in smart charging. Ohme is in a great position to lead in this field.”
Ohme founder David Watson said: “I’m excited that Peter has come on board. Ohme has grown significantly in recent years as we’ve grown our relationships with UK automotive firms and fleets.
The addition of Peter gives us even greater credibility and experience to capitalise on the growing market opportunities. I look forward to working with Peter and together growing the Ohme brand proposition.”
