Hyzon Motors Inc. has selected Shawn Yadon to be president of commercial operations, the fuel cell electric mobility company announced June 29.

Yadon will be responsible for the commercialization of the North American market, effective July 1. He will also help support the strategic position of the production and sales of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

“As the momentum in North America continues to accelerate for zero-emission commercial vehicles, we are excited to deepen our talent pool with the addition of Shawn,” Hyzon CEO Craig Knight said. “His extensive experience and relationships in the commercial trucking industry coupled with his advocacy and breadth of knowledge in government affairs positions Hyzon well to bring zero-emission vehicles to fleet operators today.”

Yadon has held numerous positions in his nearly two-decade career in corporate and government affairs. He most recently served as CEO of the California Trucking Association, a position he has held since 2014. There he was responsible for representing the trucking industry while working with lawmakers and regulators, including during the start of CTA’s ongoing fight over Assembly Bill 5 regarding the classification of contractors. Prior to that, he was vice president of corporate affairs in the office of the CEO at Copart Inc.

“I look forward to leading Hyzon Motors’ commercial activities and advocating at all levels alongside the trucking industry for the governmental support, commitment and investments necessary for Hyzon to optimize the deployment and delivery of cutting edge zero emission commercial vehicles in addition to essential hydrogen infrastructure requirements,” Yadon said. — Transport Topics
