This shows that customers appreciate our smart, sustainable, and beautifully designed products and we are right on track towards our goal of becoming one of the leading companies of our kind in Europe.”

Joke Van der Eerden joined Charge Amps at the start of 2022. She brings over 20 years of experience from driving sales growth in Western Europe and has previously held leading positions within the automotive and EV industries. In her most recent role, van der Eerden headed up the Benelux operations at EV Box, where she increased the company’s partnerships and implemented a strategic plan that led to its orders and revenue increasing threefold in just three years.
