“Few people have grown a company’s sales of alternative vehicle technology from $2 million to more than $20 million, and Jay has done this twice,” said Tod Hynes, president and founder of XL Hybrids.
“Our technology and value proposition is proven, and our suppliers and installation partners are ready to scale, so now is the prime time to add an industry-leading sales expert and accelerate our growth in the coming years,” Hynes added.
