Evatran Group, Inc. (“Evatran”), the manufacturer and distributor of Plugless, the only wireless electric vehicle (EV) charger available in the world, is opening a Bay Area office. Strategic growth plans for Plugless include continued expansion and support of automotive industry, dealer, installer and customer networks. The Bay Area, being one of the top EV markets in the world, was the natural choice for the first West Coast office for Plugless.
The new office includes two new hires for Plugless. Bret O’Neal, an EV charging, solar energy, and battery storage veteran, handles business to business sales and is the market lead. Mia Yamauchi is the new Consumer Sales Lead with event management and brand ambassador experience with brands like Dodge, Wells Fargo, State Farm Insurance, Verizon and Apple. Most recently she promoted the 2nd generation Chevy Volt for General Motors in the Bay Area.
Plugless is currently looking to fill the first Installation Services Specialist position in the Bay Area. Visit the job listing for more information.
“We plan on exponential growth this year and having a local network available in the Bay Area makes strategic sense,” said Rebecca Hough, CEO of Evatran. “Our presence among all the corporate and research & development offices of the EV industry in the area is a plus too.”
