Fastned strengthens management team with new CFO
Fastned, the charging company that is building a European network of fast charging stations, will strengthen its management team with CFO Victor van Dijk from mid November. Victor previously worked at ING as Managing Director Debt Capital Markets (DCM) where he was responsible for corporate DCM in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
With Victor van Dijk, Fastned has attracted a driven CFO with both a strong financial background and extensive experience in the financing of (sustainable) companies by institutional investors. Victor and his team have built up ING’s DCM position in Germany, Switzerland and Austria and led capital market transactions for large companies, including a large number of transactions for German car manufacturers. Victor's management experience combined with his knowledge of financial reporting provides a solid foundation to further professionalize Fastned's financial department.
“We are very happy that Victor is joining our team. Not only does he have the right financial background for this position, he also has a strong personal interest in electric mobility. We look forward to working with him.”
“I am extremely excited to join the Fastned team and contribute to sustainable mobility. Electric vehicles will see tremendous growth over the next decade and fast charging is an indispensable element in this transition. With its current fast charging network and its scaling potential, I believe Fastned is uniquely positioned to capitalise on this growth and become one of the leading European fast charging companies.”
