Volta Charging’s Founder & CEO Selected from a Record-Breaking Field of 800 Nominees
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (October 5, 2020) – Volta Charging, the industry leader in innovative electric vehicle charging networks, today announced that Ad Age’s 40 under 40 List has honored Scott Mercer, Volta’s Founder and CEO. He joins the slate of 40 talented individuals who have been instrumental in advancing the advertising industry in a demonstrable way during the last 12 months.
“Ad Age’s 40 Under 40 Award recognizes Scott as a visionary not only in the electric vehicle field, but also in the advertising space,” said Nadya Kohl, Chief Marketing Officer at Volta. “It is an important affirmation of the uniqueness of his Volta media model – inviting brands to benefit from an advertising format that simultaneously offers access to high value audiences and attainment of important sustainability goals,” she added.
Volta’s innovative approach couples digital, place-based media with electric vehicle charging stations in historically unavailable “out of home” locations – steps from the front door of the premier retailers that consumers visit every day.
Volta’s advertising-driven charging network is the largest free electric vehicle charging network in the U.S., providing universal access to all electric vehicle drivers at over 1,300 stations in most major media markets. Drivers have benefitted from over 75 million free electric miles to date, which is the total equivalent of planting over 250,000 trees. Brands that advertise on Volta’s stations include Porsche, Rxbar and Hulu, at locations like Whole Foods, Amazon Fresh and Walgreens
For over a decade, Volta has been building a nationwide electric vehicle charging network to drive the world forward. Named after Alessandro Volta, the inventor of the electric battery, Volta’s award-winning charging stations benefit brands, consumers, and real-estate locations by providing valuable advertising space to businesses and free charging to drivers. Strategically located in places where consumers already spend their time and money, Volta’s chargers are currently the most used electric vehicle charging stations in the United States. Headquartered in San Francisco, Volta is bringing to communities the means of building a sustainable fueling network for the 21st century. To learn more, visit voltacharging.com.
