Levo Mobility LLC has added Maggie Clancy and Walter Watson as chief commercial officer and chief operating officer, respectively.
Levo, a joint venture of Nuvve Holding Corp., affiliates of Stonepeak Partners LP, and Evolve Transition Infrastructure LP, provides fleet-as-a-service (FaaS) solutions that enable fleets (such as those in school districts) to switch to electric vehicles.
Both Clancy and Watson join Levo after working at National Express LLC, a North American company that operates more than 26,000 vehicles to support paratransit, fix route, shuttle, and school bus passenger needs. National Express has more than 22,500 in about 550 school districts in 34 states and three provinces.
They’re expected to guide Levo’s strategic direction and go-to-market efforts while it continues to pursue fleet-electrification opportunities across the United States.
Clancy will lead all aspects of the joint venture’s customer-acquisition efforts, driving relationships with school districts and other key decision makers. She has more than two decades of experience in marketing, brand, and strategy. She holds a BA from Northern Illinois University and an MBA from Loyola University-Chicago.
Watson will oversee all operations for Levo, ensuring a smooth and effective process for customers to expedite fleet electrification and support decarbonization initiatives. He has worked for 15 years in senior and executive positions in finance, maintenance, operations, commercial, and procurement. He holds a BS in finance from the University of Nebraska and is enrolled for an MBA at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
"We are thrilled to welcome Maggie and Walter to Levo – their collective experience and relationships bring valuable skillsets to Levo in its mission of electrifying transportation and leveraging vehicle-to-grid solutions," said Gregory Poilasne, chairman and CEO of Nuvve. "The team at Levo will provide turnkey solutions that include full financing support for fleets transitioning to electric vehicles and build on Nuvve's existing intelligent energy platform that currently serves more than 80 customers across 11 countries, including 13 U.S. states."
"As a parent, transportation professional, and someone that cares deeply about our environment, I believe transitioning fleets to electric is perhaps one of the most important and most achievable opportunities to reduce our global carbon emissions for future generations," said Clancy. "I am thrilled to be part of the Levo team and look forward to partnering with local leaders who desire safer and cleaner transportation for their communities."
"Through Levo and our partnership with Nuvve, Stonepeak is pleased to advance the electrification of transportation, which offers a meaningful immediate opportunity to combat climate change given transportation emissions represent close to 30% of total U.S. greenhouse emissions today," said Stonepeak Managing Director Trent Kososki. "Maggie and Walter bring critical relevant experience to their roles at Levo, which should offer peace-of-mind to customers as they switch to zero-emission, electric vehicles."
