Kristof Vereenooghe is the CEO of EVBox, the global market leader in charging solutions for electric vehicles and related cloud services. Mr. Vereenooghe is a proven technology executive with deep SaaS-Cloud software expertise and a track record in transforming startups into key players in their industry. Before joining EVBox, Mr. Vereenooghe had a leading role within different startups that have become key players in their industry such as Bynder, LUMA Marketing Technologies and Xeikon.

EVBox is the leading global manufacturer of electric vehicle charging stations and charging management software. With over 60,000 charging points across more than 45 countries worldwide, EVBox helps electric drivers get access to charging infrastructure at any point in their journey.

Founded in 2010, EVBox made its breakthrough when the market for electric vehicles (EVs) was still in its infancy. Its founders set their hearts and eyes on a clear concept: a fully modular charging station that facilitates easy installation, maintenance upgrades, and above all, uncompromising quality and durability.

Soon, EVBox became the sole supplier of public charging infrastructure in cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Monaco. Meanwhile, EVBox played an active role in promoting Smart Charging technologies and roaming of charging infrastructure with industry partners and public organizations.

In 2017, EVBox was acquired by energy utility and global service provider ENGIE, who identified EVBox as a disruptive, leading cleantech company making a difference in the fast-growing industry of electric mobility. In 2018, EVBox acquired the ultra-fast charging station manufacturer EVTronic, adding 700 previously installed fast charging stations to EVBox’s European network.

Today, with projects running across Europe, North America, South America, and Asia, EVBox moves forward by perfecting its original recipe with a second generation of hardware and software that are easy to use, energy-efficient, scalable, and future-proof.

The evolution of EV charging equipment will be fascinating to watch-- both from a consumer perspective and from a grid/utility perspective. I'm happy that there are enthusiastic and bright leaders like Kristof in this space!
