Volta names news chief revenue officer
Volta, one of this year’s Emerging 8 honorees, welcomed a new chief revenue officer to its executive leadership team on Monday.
Joining the company focused on commerce-centric electric vehicle charging networks is Brandt Hastings, who brings nearly two decades of experience in digital media and advertising to Volta.
“Volta is unique in our ability to create commerce through EV charging, and our platform can connect brands to one of the most influential shifts in consumer and mobility behavior,” Volta founder and chief executive officer Scott Mercer said in a news release.
“Brandt’s background in developing effective, data driven media solutions perfectly matches Volta’s ambition to create a real-world media platform with truly measurable impact,” Mercer continued.
The company highlighted Hastings’ experience in building revenue growth strategies will be a key asset as Volta continues to successfully scale the value of its premium EV charging network. The company projects that its work in developing innovative commercial solutions for top global brands and advertising agencies will build on Volta’s existing partnerships and unlock new opportunities.
Prior to joining Volta, Brandt held key revenue leadership positions at iHeartMedia and Clear Channel Communications, where he established a track record of building innovative new business models that delivered superior, measurable results for marketers and advertising agency partners.
“I am excited to join Volta as their charging stations double as an ad platform telling high impact stories using sustainable technology,” said Hastings, who will report to Mercer and be based in the New York area.
“Volta is the most utilized EV charging network in the U.S. which is important to me as it not only helps to combat climate change, it is also a proven, unique platform for advertisers,” Hastings added.
