As the EV Manager at Maven, General Motor’s mobility platform, Kelly leads overall strategy and deployment of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure. Since joining Maven, Kelly has overseen the deployment of hundreds of EVs in six markets into rideshare and delivery platforms, powering millions of all-electric miles.  In her role she is responsible for partnering with cities, utilities, and Electric Vehicle Service Providers to inform the investment of charging infrastructure that support large fleets of electric vehicles today, and will support autonomous electric vehicles in the future. Prior to General Motors, Kelly worked at Evercar, which applied the solar power purchase agreement model to transportation electrification by renting electric vehicles to municipalities and rideshare drivers on a total cost of ownership basis.

 

Kelly studied Economics and Business at Central Michigan University and received a Master’s from Indiana University in Bloomington.
