LISLE, Ill. – National Express LLC is pleased to introduce Nick Voisard in his new role as its Senior Director of Electric Vehicles for North America. Nick is an industry veteran who has over ten years of experience in the contracted school transportation industry, including working with manufacturer, Lion Electric.

Working with current and prospective customers, Nick will provide customized, comprehensive solutions and fleet replacement schedules to ensure customers are equipped with the necessary resources needed to allow for smooth transitions.

National Express currently has customers in all of our divisions utilizing electric vehicles in their fleet and possesses a thorough understanding for replicating and expanding our EV footprint across North America on a much larger scale.

“We are delighted to have Nick step into this newly created role of leading our growing Electric Vehicle portfolio in North America. This is especially noteworthy as we approach Earth Day on April 22 as it is a testament of National Express’ commitment to creating a greener future,” said Gary Waits, CEO of National Express, LLC. “We are no stranger to the world of EVs as we are currently active in the EV market in all three of our divisions.
