Electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure company Liberty Charge has appointed Shaun Quirk as COO to oversee the increased roll out of on-street charging points.

Quirk joins Liberty Charge, the joint venture created by Liberty Global and Zouk Capital, from SSE, where he was responsible for both the planning and delivery of 1,600-plus Source London charge points across 22 London boroughs.

His appointment follows Liberty Charge’s first major deployment in the UK earlier this year - 20 units in the London borough of Waltham Forest - and ahead of a pipeline of several further sites with a number of local authorities.

He will be responsible for working closely and building relationships with charge point operators and key stakeholders in local authorities looking to deploy on street EV chargers.

Quirk said: “This move is a case of the right role, right company and right time.

“EV as a sector is on the cusp of a major period of growth and central to its successful adoption as a technology will be the role of on-street and public charging.

“That puts Liberty Charge right at the centre of this movement, which promises to be a huge focus area for the UK economy for years to come.”

Commenting on the appointment, Neil Isaacson, CEO, Liberty Charge, said: “The UK is one of the world’s foremost nations when it comes to addressing climate change and EV adoption is a key element to its strategy.

“Successfully hitting the UK Governments’ net zero targets will require companies across every segment of sustainability to be in the best position possible and be able to scale effectively, whilst delivering what our customers demand, that’s why we’ve appointed Shaun.”
