Nathan Dunlop leads strategy for Tritium, a Brisbane-based company which leads the world in EV battery charging, recently listed on the NASDAQ and counts US President Joe Biden as one its most important customers.
Nathan joined Tritium when the business had fewer than 100 employees. Since then, Tritium has expanded internationally, working from three overseas offices, managing 600 employees and deploying more than 6,700 DC fast chargers to over 40 countries worldwide.
Recently, Nathan has supported Tritium in the journey to becoming a publicly listed company, launching on the NASDAQ in January this year with a market cap of around $2 billion. Just after that, President Joe Biden announced a $230 million contract for Tritium to rapidly expand production in the United States. The company’s new facility in Tennessee is expected to produce 30,000 charging units per year to provide fast and reliable power to electric vehicles across the USA.
Tritium is now the world’s second largest fast charging company, but it is anything but an overnight success. It has been slowly building on the technology its founders developed over 20 years ago in Australia’s annual solar-powered car race. Built to withstand the harshest environments, Tritium’s products are playing a leading role in the global transition to a cleaner and more sustainable future.
What makes the United States such an attractive market for Nathan and his team? What are the specific challenges of setting up business offshore? And how will the continued expansion of electric cars impact Australian consumers? Join Nathan and several other successful Brisbane companies at the next AmCham event.
