John Holland – Commercial Director, Europe and Middle East – Momentum Dynamics

Momentum’s focus to date has been on charging electric bus and truck operations. However, in response to accelerating global customer demand for automatic wireless charging of private passenger cars, particularly in luxury segments and high utilization taxi operations, Momentum is expanding its global footprint and product offerings.
