The Electric Vehicle Council of Australia welcomes ORIX’s General Manager of Business Solutions, Mary Moran, to their board of directors.

The Electric Vehicle Council of Australia (EVC) has announced that Mary Moran has been appointed to their board of directors.

The EVC is Australia’s peak body for the electric vehicle industry. It represents organisations involved in providing, powering and supporting electric vehicles. Its primary mission is to accelerate the electrification of road transport for a sustainable and prosperous Australia.

 

“We welcome Mary to the board and the wealth of experience and energy she brings,” said EVC CEO Behyad Jafari. “With Mary’s background of taking several new technologies from concept to reality, I’m sure she will provide the practical, relevant advice that will benefit the entire Electric Vehicle community.”

 

During her career, Mary has held a range of executive and consulting roles in the fleet, mining, utilities, financial and professional services sectors, across the globe. These roles have focussed on helping large corporates embrace new products and how to utilise emerging technology to drive sustainable growth.

 

“The EVC plays a critical role in helping Australians understand electric vehicle (EV) capability, commercial possibility and environmental benefits. It’s an exciting time to join the board and to be part of a commitment of building a better future where EVs are an integral part of a connected vehicle ecosystem. ” said Mary.

 

Since 2015, Mary has been a part of the ORIX Australia senior executive team, initially as General Manager of Technology and Innovation and now in her current role as General Manager Business Solutions.  In July of this year, ORIX Australia was named on the 2019 AFR BOSS Most Innovative Companies List for the third consecutive year. 

 

“Corporate and government fleets make up over half of all new vehicle sales in Australia and are significant suppliers to the second hand market1. So they have an important role in driving the electric revolution and it is important that their interests are represented,” said Mary.
