EZ-Charge appoints new Operations Director to fuel growth


Charge Point Operator EZ-Charge has promoted Peter Shadbolt to Operations Director as part of its large-scale growth plans.

Peter who was previously Chief Technology Officer will oversee the company’s strategic development and operations across product development, customer service, user experience and network rollout to ensure it achieves its short, medium and long-term objectives. He will still be responsible for his current technical duties in his new role.

The appointment forms a key step in EZ-Charge’s growth strategy in the public and private sectors. It follows the appointments of Helen Masters as Head of Sales and Partnerships and Rob Perry as Sales Manager. The company has a series of commercial developments planned across this year.

Peter said: “This is an exciting time at EZ-Charge, we have an incredible product and an excellent foundation for growth. We are developing a first-class leadership team to enable us to scale and I’m proud to be part of it.

“We have a clear strategy on how we can help the UK achieve a strong and reliable charging network to ensure a smooth continued transition to electric and I look forward to helping to deliver it with the team. Our goal is simple, to continue to disrupt the market by making EV charging easy by providing accessible, simple to use and reliable charging points.”

Peter has worked in the EV charging industry for more than four years and joined EZ-Charge almost three years ago.

Phil Shadbolt, Founder and CEO of EZ-Charge said: “Congratulations to Peter on his well-deserved promotion. Peter has been an integral part of our growth to date and his new role provides us with the required senior structure to help take us forward.”

Based in Bicester, Oxfordshire, EZ-Charge is a leading EV charge point operator. It designed, installed and manages one of the UK’s largest regional public charging networks, Park & Charge Oxfordshire, with 250 chargers across 20 sites.

It has developed some of the market’s most advanced software systems, the EZ-Charge dashboard, which provides live access to the most powerful data from its chargers. Its team supports the public and private sectors in following the transition to electrification.
