InstaVolt, one of Europe’s largest rapid EV charging networks, has strengthened its senior leadership team as it celebrates securing top position in a prestigious index measuring company growth.

The award-winning company has appointed Jo Kerr as Group Marketing Director and Mark Sherrard as Sales Director. The joint announcement comes after InstaVolt was named as the leading company in the ORESA Growth Index 2024 Top 100 thanks to a compound annual growth rate of 362.55 percent.

Jo Kerr joins InstaVolt from Cinch.  As Brand Director, she engaged presenter Rylan Clark to help drive the company to become the UK’s fastest growing direct to consumer online car buying brand.

Previously, she was Managing Partner at worldwide creative agency Iris, responsible for the Shell account globally.

During her 25 years’ experience in senior leadership roles in marketing, Jo has worked with a range of brands including Barclays, Motorola, Vodafone, GSK, Alcon and HP.

On joining InstaVolt, Jo said: “I am delighted to have joined the team at such a pivotal time for EVs and charging. Without doubt we’re at the tipping point of EVs becoming the norm and I want to make sure that InstaVolt is the first name consumers think about when it comes to charging their cars on the go.”

With almost 20 years’ experience in the energy sector, Mark Sherrard joins InstaVolt following a two-year spell as Commercial Director at the net zero provider eEnergy where he created a sales message and process that generated an 87% increase in revenue and grew the pipeline from £98m to £227m.

Prior to his role at eEnergy, Mark was Head of Sales at specialist energy supplier Yu Group. During this role, Mark led the sales team to contract and onboard over 2,000 new customers from other failing suppliers.

He said: “InstaVolt has the best reputation in its field and it’s incredibly exciting to join at this stage when there is so much momentum.

“I’ve spent much of my career in supporting sustainable energy endeavours, as well as being a car nut. This is the perfect fit.”

InstaVolt’s CCO Simon Smith, said: “We’re delighted to welcome on board Jo and Mark as we enter a new phase of growth. Their track records and experience speak for themselves and will add breadth and depth to the senior leadership team.”

InstaVolt now has 120 full time employees and is gearing up to deliver on its commitment to install 11,000 ultra rapid chargers in the UK and Ireland.

Together with installing 5,000 chargers across Spain and Portugal and more than 300 in Iceland, InstaVolt’s aim is to be the benchmark for reliable, contactless EV charging across the world.
