ChargeNet, which operates a nationwide electric vehicle (EV) charging network and is a rapid and hyper-rapid commercial EV charging distributor, today announced the appointment of its new chief executive, Danusia Wypych (pronounced Dah-nu-sha Vih-pik).

Wypych has a diverse background in key New Zealand industries including the energy and transport sectors. She served most recently as head of new ventures and transformation programme manager at Transpower New Zealand. Prior to this she worked at Z Energy where she was the company’s first sustainability manager and later led a number of transformational projects over her eight years with the company.

Key objectives of Wypych’s tenure will be maintaining ChargeNet’s momentum in rolling out a comprehensive charging network across the country and delivering new customer-centric technologies, increasing charging density and accessibility.

ChargeNet board of directors chair Terry Allen said Wypych would bring unique dual experience from the electricity and liquid fuels sectors.

“We look forward to Danusia’s leadership as ChargeNet and the EV charging industry mature commercially. We are excited at the prospect of Danusia driving the continued expansion of our network, building new customer-centric technologies, and increasing ChargeNet’s value proposition.”

In talking about her new role, Wypych said: “It is an honour to join a company that is leading the transition towards a net zero carbon future. And as Aotearoa New Zealand progresses its transition towards electric mobility, it’s essential there is a reliable, equitable, and accessible EV charging network that meets the needs of the community, and supports people easily in making the switch to EVs.

“How we move is deeply connected to how we live. A strong transport network has better health outcomes for New Zealanders, better education outcomes, and better overall quality of life – it can drive prosperity and economic growth.”
