Director of Engineering
Rich Steele is a co-founder of FreeWire Technologies and serves as the Director of Engineering. He spearheaded the effort from development to production of the Mobi Charger and Mobi Gen product lines. Prior to FreeWire, Rich spend years in the lithium-ion battery cell industry, developing and managing pack technologies at Leyden Energy before its acquisition by A123 Systems. His previous roles included many years in aerospace engineering, designing spacecraft components at Lockheed Martin.
CEO and co-founder Arcady Sosinov started with the mission to accelerate EV adoption. Extensive research around driver habits and charging infrastructure limitations led Arcady to one conclusion - EV chargers can be deployed more rapidly if the chargers can move to the vehicles. The inabilities of charging station deployment to keep up with driver demands were especially prevalent among technology companies in Silicon Valley.
In July 2015, FreeWire launched a three-month pilot program at LinkedIn’s Mountain View campus in to provide their employees with EV charging. After a successful pilot service, the program was expanded into FreeWire’s first commercial contract. FreeWire is still providing EV charging service for LinkedIn employees today.
Later that year, FreeWire was selected by Elemental Excelerator for the demonstration track of the 2015 cohort. Through the program, FreeWire partnered with Hawaiian Electric and later Vector. Working with two major utilities was a monumental step in uncovering the real market need for cloud-connected mobile battery systems.
Today the vision is clear and the roadmap has been drawn (subject to change as with all roadmaps of young companies). FreeWire believes in the electrification of everything as a key component to a decarbonized, sustainable world. The company will continuously strive to achieve full electrification beyond the grid with the unique capabilities of its cloud-connected mobile battery systems.
