“As a kid, I was a huge fan of superheroes saving the world. While comics are fantasy, the spark of saving the world has remained in me throughout adulthood. Now, I’m in a position where I can switch from fantasy to real life and play my part in saving the world. I’m leading a company with a vision to revolutionize EV charging, allowing EVs to become the norm.”
