Los Altos, CA, July 14, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Board of Directors for ADOMANI, Inc. announced today the election of Jim Reynolds to its Board. Mr. Reynolds is a 13-year veteran in the school, commercial and transit bus industry, most recently serving as the President and CEO of A-Z Bus Sales of Colton, California. During his time with A-Z, Mr. Reynolds grew the company’s top line revenues, profit and market penetration by double digit percentages.
Edward Monfort, ADOMANI Founder and CTO, expressed his excitement about Mr. Reynolds joining the board stating, “We are a technology driven company that has carved out a market in the all-electric vehicle space as well as the electric hybrid arena. We have many new products that are market ready including Class 8 trucks and school buses. Mr. Reynolds joining our Board brings the needed factor of sales and marketing leadership to the company.” “With over 30-years of sales and marketing experience, not only in the bus industry but consumer electronics, Jim is a great fit for ADOMANI’s needs as we move forward,” said Kevin Kanning, ADOMANI’s COO.
Mr. Monfort added, “We will be moving our headquarters from Florida to California over the next several months. Jim’s contacts, relationships and bus experience will be very important to our continued growth.” Mr. Kanning followed up saying, “ADOMANI will continue to develop business opportunities throughout the country, but we know California is on the forefront of Green Technology and this is where we intend to focus.”
Jim Reynolds said: “My previous executive positions have allowed me to see new, novel and intriguing technologies in the transit, school bus and commercial truck industry. After meeting the ADOMANI team over the last few years, I’ve been captivated with their fresh ideas, aggressive goals, and impressive demonstration vehicles that I’ve driven and ridden in. Their repowered all-electric 40 foot 50 passenger Blue Bird All American school bus they delivered to the Gilroy Unified School District as part of a Health Trust/Breathe California Disruptive Innovation Grant was quite impressive. Their patented technology utilizes over 90% of the OEM parts to significantly reduce emissions and the cost of fuel from over $4.00 a gallon to $.45. The grant design also included solar assisted fueling. Joining the ADOMANI Board places me in a strong position to leverage my experience and network in the Bus and Truck industry in ways that will assure market success for the ADOMANI grid integrated, electric and hybrid vehicles and repower drivetrains.”
Mr. Reynolds served on the Dealer Advisory Committee of Blue Bird Corporation and is a member of the School Transportation Coalition Committee, the CalAct Professional Association in the Commercial & Transit Space, and CASBO & CASTO, an association for development of school transportation officials and directors.
