With more than two decades of executive experience across automotive, energy and engineering manufacturing, Mr. Casey will step into this role after serving as Tritium’s Interim Director of Global Operations since May 2021.

“Tritium has a technology advantage with world-leading DC fast chargers and, in this challenged supply chain environment, we require an experienced operations leader with a proven track record who can successfully navigate manufacturing complexity and enable the Company to meet strong market demand,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. “With Glen on board, we gain a leader who has been with the Company for nearly a year and in that time hit production records. Glen has the knowledge and real-world experience to help Tritium globally scale our manufacturing operations and continue to optimize and mature those processes.”
In his role as COO, Glen Casey will oversee company-wide operational performance, global supply and product distribution and customer support services. Mr. Casey holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Swinburne University of Technology.

I look forward to working alongside the Company’s impressive management, board of directors and staff to capitalize on the opportunities that lie ahead in this rapidly maturing e-mobility industry.”
