Growth continues at Australian electric truck company, SEA Electric, with the announcement of Bill Gillespie joining the company in the position of President – Asia Pacific.
Mr Gillespie brings to the business a wealth of automotive industry experience in both the passenger vehicle market with Toyota, Kia and Nissan then more recently in the truck industry with Hino Australia.
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Bill to the SEA Electric family,” said Tony Fairweather, SEA Electric’s Founder and President.
“This is an exciting time for SEA Electric, especially in the Asia Pacific region, with Bill set to anchor the market development team, enabling the region to achieve its substantial growth forecast.
“Glen Walker assumes the focussed responsibilities of Vice President – Asia Pacific Operations, where he will continue his incredible work in providing a complete family of high quality, well designed, application-ready and efficiently produced electric vehicle products to the Asia Pacific region.
“I am very excited by the future possibilities for SEA Electric in combining Glen’s comprehensive international Transport Industry experience with Bill’s proven business growth accomplishments. What a team!”
For Mr Gillespie, he joins SEA Electric at an exciting time for the manufacturer, which will be launching its Australian produced range of 100 per cent electric-powered trucks at next week’s Brisbane Truck Show.
“I’m incredibly optimistic about joining the SEA Electric business at a time when the market demand for zero-emission logistics and vehicles is growing, and to have a role in an Australian company with a global footprint like SEA Electric is a once in a career opportunity,” said Bill Gillespie.
