The London based start-up, Aerovolt, appointed François Randin, Swiss entrepreneur and electric vehicle charging infrastructure pioneer to its Board of Directors. According to the company, they are building the world’s first charging network for electric aircraft and eVTOLs.

Aerovolt believed it was obvious that François Randin, who designed and launched the very first charging station for electric aircraft in 2020, and Aerovolt decide to join forces developing solutions for more sustainable aviation.

Randin has been the founder and CEO of two electric mobility start-ups, which have both been bought by blue chips. Founded in 2009, Green Motion says it was amongst the first start-up designing and manufacturing charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, acquired by Eaton in 2021. Founded in 2018, evpass believes it is the largest charging network for electric vehicles in Switzerland and has been acquired by Shell in 2023.

“He is bringing to the team his unique 15 years’ experience in our business, his international network and an extensive start-up and entrepreneurship expertise,” said Philip Kingsley-Dobson, Aerovolt‘s Founder and CEO.

The UK start-up has been focusing on its domestic market but is planning an international roll out once the next financing round is completed.
