At Allstar, we’ve been prioritising EV charging solutions for several years now and are already serving a large number of customers across the United Kingdom with combined fuel card and EV charging products for on the road and at home payment solutions.

With this in mind, we’re excited that our parent company, FLEETCOR®, has appointed Tom Rowlands as Managing Director of Global EV Solutions, emphasising our commitment to an all-electric future.

A global role

In this newly created role, Tom will take over operational responsibility for FLEETCOR’s EV product solutions globally, with current activity focused on the UK, Western Europe, and North America.

Tom previously served as Vice President of Strategy for FLEETCOR across Europe, during which time he was instrumental in driving the company’s EV strategy, including building EV charging and management solutions as well as growing the charging network. This also included the strategic investments in UK-based Mina.

A market need

This new appointment comes at a pivotal time for the UK’s businesses. With government-mandated deadlines creeping ever closer, there must be the infrastructure and strategy in place to be able to cope with a surge in demand, along with more robust back-end systems that can drive efficiencies for businesses.

Tom’s mission will help us at Allstar to continue to develop and launch innovative solutions that will smooth the transition to EVs for businesses of all shapes and sizes up and down the country.

Having been so involved in helping Allstar build market-leading solutions for electric fleets, I am delighted to head up FLEETCOR’s Global EV Solutions team and look forward to driving EV adoption for fleets, especially in the UK,” says Tom Rowlands, Managing Director, Global EV Solutions.

Our commitment to helping the transition

Tom’s appointment is the latest demonstration of our strategic commitment to helping companies with  the transition of their commercial fleets to EV powered vehicles through providing simplified payment solutions

Allstar recently launched Allstar Homecharge, powered by Mina, which simplifies the payments and management of EV charging at home by providing complete transaction visibility through one platform. Allstar also has one of the largest multi-branded EV charging networks in the UK through key strategic partnerships including Allego, Source London, PlugNGo, and Mer. The network represents more than 5,700 charge points across more than 2,000 locations.

Now we are focused on continuing our mission of expanding our EV footprint and rolling out market-leading products and services to help support fleets navigating the complexities of operating mixed EV and ICE fleets in the future.
