How Charlie is building a better working world

“In 2016 I established Mobility2030, one of the first cross-sector e-Mobility consulting teams in the UK, looking at the interconnected themes of e-Mobility, electrification, smart infrastructure and the financing ecosystem. At the time, these themes were considered somewhat marginal and exotic – certainly not part of consulting or EY clients’ core business. I have personally been passionate about driving these themes forward and building a business and cohort of colleagues who will take these themes to the next stage. Given the current climate situation, this is the most important challenge we are facing together.”
