NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Ideanomics (NASDAQ: IDEX), a global company focused on accelerating the commercial adoption of electric vehicles, announced today that Robin Mackie has been appointed Chief Operating Officer and Macy Neshati has been appointed Chief Commercial Officer, effective immediately.
"With these appointments, Ideanomics is strengthening our corporate structure and leadership team so we can better meet the needs of our customers and ultimately emerge a winner in the EV space," says Alf Poor, Ideanomics Chief Executive Officer. " Robin and Macy have deep industry expertise and each played a pivotal role in building up Ideanomics into a leading EV company with some of the best technology and people in the industry. I look forward to their ongoing contributions."
As Chief Operating Officer, Mackie will oversee the performance of all operations throughout the Ideanomics group. He will also support the CEO and board in implementing the company's vision and strategy.
In his previous role as President of Ideanomics Mobility, Mackie led the development of Energica, Solectrac, U.S. Hybrid and WAVE from promising start-ups to industry leaders. He has also served in leadership roles at Express Group and Smith Electric Vehicles, and formed a consulting group to support the growth of commercial electric vehicle start-ups, and fleet operators transitioning to commercial electric vehicles.
As Chief Commercial Officer, Neshati will oversee an enterprise-wide commercial strategy for Ideanomics centered on securing contracts with high-value customers. Central to this is enabling collaboration between Ideanomics Mobility, now including VIA Motors, and Ideanomics Energy to offer customers an integrated EV and charging solution. Neshati will also be accountable for securing government funding and grants to accelerate Ideanomics growth and EV deployments.
Neshati previously served as the CEO of Ideanomics' subsidiary U.S. Hybrid, where he formed strategic partnerships with Global Environmental Products, Toyota Tsusho and A-1 Alternative Fuel Systems. Under his leadership, U.S. Hybrid evolved from a small, project-focused company into an industry leading organization recognized for its proven zero-emission solutions for specialty vehicles. Neshati has served in leadership roles at the Antelope Valley Transit Authority and BYD, bringing deep knowledge to Ideanomics about what end-users want in an EV solution.
