01 Jul 2019

 Australian lighting and technology business, Evolt, has announced the appointment of a new chief executive team to drive market expansion and innovation within a highly disrupted Electrical and Lighting industry.

Joel Moss, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, says that this company change is a key part of the strategy to ensure Evolt's continued growth in a rapidly changing industry. "By appointing a deeply-experienced and enthusiastic executive team, we are ensuring that Evolt continues to provide product excellence and thought leadership in the new electrical evolution."

These new appointments will drive an era of positive change and rapid growth for the business under Moss's continuing leadership:

Trent Jerome - Chief Financial Officer

A veteran finance, operations and M&A specialist from the telecommunications industry, whose recent achievements include finalising the sale of AAPT. With 25 years of experience including capital raises of $25m and a depth of cross-functional leadership experience, Jerome stated "I jumped at the opportunity to join Evolt as I recognise the unique opportunity they have in the marketplace to rapidly expand."

Andrew Parker - Chief Innovation Officer

A smart building specialist, entrepreneur and former global director of strategy for Schneider Electric's Smart Space business, Parker brings years of first-class expertise and innovation to the company. On his appointment, Parker explained that he's "looking to innovate Evolt's already strong lighting and tech offering with connected technologies and powerful cloud platforms to solve customer needs."

Ben Green - Chief Marketing Officer

A successful entrepreneur and founder of two tech companies, Green recently held the position of Smart Space Director within Schneider Electric. Green has extensive experience in the IOT industry and specialises in brand transformation and go-to market strategy. In the lead up to his new role, Green is "looking forward to further increasing Evolt's brand equity and using data-driven decision making to expand the company's reach across both residential and commercial markets."

Fred Nimarota - Executive General Manager Sales                                                             

An experienced senior executive and former Managing Director of Aurora Lighting, Nimarota joins Evolt with considerable expertise in the lighting industry. A results driven leader, Nimarota will add his skills in sales and negotiation to the team; and states that "during a time when the industry is experiencing major disruption, I'm committed to delivering relevant new products and building strong customer partnerships."

With this high calibre executive team in place, expect to see a series of innovative changes to Evolt who will be targeting growth in a highly disrupted industry. From new lighting and technology solutions, to major partnerships, Evolt will be pushing the boundaries of what is expected from a lighting and technology company in 2019 and beyond.
