RAW Charging, a rapidly growing provider of electric vehicle charging solutions and infrastructure for the UK’s net zero future, is pleased to announce the appointment of Tim Eggar as a non-executive Chairman, effective immediately.
Tim is a highly respected non-executive Chair and Board Director, with a wealth of experience across the energy sector. He was a government minister for 11 years and Energy Minister between 1992 and 1996. Tim was appointed as Chairman of the Oil and Gas Authority in March 2019, a role he still holds.
After leaving Parliament, Tim became chairman of Agip UK and M. W. Kellogg Limited. In 1998, he was appointed as CEO of Monument Oil and Gas until its acquisition by Lasmo. From 2000 to 2004 he headed up ABN AMRO’s Energy Corporate finance worldwide business.
Tim sits on the strategic advisory board of Braemar Energy Ventures, an early investor in ChargePoint.
From 2004 he held a number of roles including chairman of Harrison Lovegrove & Co, Indago Petroleum, 3legs Resources and, most recently, chairman of Cape plc and MyCelx Technologies Corp.
Tim joins RAW Charging following the recent appointment of David Richards CBE as a non-executive Director. The Company continues to deliver on its ambition of providing an extensive network of reliable, convenient EV charging infrastructure across the UK and supporting the UK Government’s transition away from diesel and petrol cars.
2021 was a year of rapid growth for RAW as it delivered on its strategy of helping asset owners with their EV charging requirements. The Company has recently won a number of major contracts with blue chip customers such as Greene King, for whom RAW is installing chargers across 800 pubs and hotels; McArthurGlen, where RAW is installing EV chargers at designer outlets across the UK and Europe; and Aviva Investors, for whom RAW is providing EV charging at 60 commercial property sites. RAW has also recently acquired Franklin EV Limited, adding 128 EV charging points and a further 370 managed chargers to the RAW asset base. This growth positions RAW well for 2022 when it will continue to provide asset owners with EV charging solutions ahead of the 2030 deadline in the UK.
Bruce Galliford, CEO, RAW Charging, said:
“We are delighted to have Tim joining the Board of RAW Charging. Tim has a wealth of experience in the energy sector that the Company can draw upon as it delivers on its EV installation strategy. We look forward to the next year as we continue to grow RAW Charging and provide UK and European asset owners with EV charging solutions to enable the energy transition.”
Tim Eggar, Non-Executive Chairman, RAW Charging, said:
“RAW Charging is a hugely exciting business and I am pleased to be joining the team. The shift to EV is a major structural change in the energy market and I look forward to lending my experience to the team as we navigate this extremely important period for UK infrastructure. I am confident that RAW Charging will continue on its rapid growth trajectory.”
