Moon joins the electric-motor-enhancing technology company after founding and serving as chief technology officer of ThisFish Inc, a software company dedicated to making seafood supply chains more transparent. He also worked as software lead and data specialist at Corvus Energy.
The Vancouver-based company said Moon will work to increase the adoption of Exro’s technology profile by the transportation, agriculture, heavy industry, energy, construction, automotive and recreational vehicle sectors.
"We are now commercializing Exro with key strategic partners and customers," CEO Sue Ozdemir said in a statement. "The appointment of Steven Moon as chief product officer ensures Exro will be seamlessly integrated into the marketplace, with an exceptional customer experience and significant energy savings and performance gains in electric motors."
Ozdemir herself was appointed in September, and the company said she has already begun meeting commercialization milestones. For instance, the company’s first delivered e-bike product came with a 25% boost in torque and acceleration.
Moon, for his part, is impressed.
"Exro has developed ground-breaking technology that dramatically increases the power, speed and efficiency of electric motor systems," Moon said. "As we focus on commercialization, I am excited to help our partners and customers fully integrate Exro into their operations."
