“With the seismic shift in the competitive landscape for EV charging over the last few months, it is essential that EVgo doubles down on investments in our culture and employee engagement so that we can attract – and retain – best-in-class talent,” said Khan. “An essential part of growing as a business is developing our internal community – and the introduction of our first Chief People Officer is a vital next step in building upon EVgo’s people initiatives to position us to continue to achieve our mission of Electric for All.”
