Hyzon Motors Inc., global supplier of zero-emission heavy-duty fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), appointed John Edgley president of International Operations, effective immediately.
In his new role, Edgley will oversee and manage Hyzon’s Europe, Australia and New Zealand business regions, including full commercial, operational and financial responsibilities.
In his expanded role, Hyzon says Edgley will be responsible for leading the global cabover FCEV program. The cabover vehicle configuration is preferred across Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Edgley’s appointment ensures the development of this market critical platform is integrated and standardized across the global organization, the company says.
Edgley joined Hyzon Motors in July 2021 and has been heavily engaged in shaping the company’s global strategic efforts as part of Hyzon’s global executive leadership team, according to Hyzon Motors.
“John Edgley’s appointment extends the technical, organizational, and operational expertise of our European team,” said Hyzon President and interim CEO Parker Meeks. “Under John’s leadership, the Hyzon Australia and New Zealand organization has been built and has successfully brought the Hyzon rigid truck platform forward in conjunction with Hyzon’s global engineering function, embodying our mission for global collaboration across the organization. I am confident that with John’s operational knowledge and industry experience, our ongoing development and delivery of the cabover vehicle platform will be integrated across the organization to further leverage our core fuel cell technology and global development.”
