His typical day starts at 7am. Walking or cycling to the office, it’s quiet when processing the paperwork. Performance vs forecasts for investors is imperative. At the beginning of 2020, Evoy secured €7.3 million in capital from an ongoing series of investment rounds, with €3 million coming from the European Union’s Innovation Council, but accountability and upward management, and keeping investors informed is imperative. 8am and staff are in. Meeting with my other experts, my wonderful team. How can I help? Important to listen to them and their updated perspective on Evoy’s evolution. It’s up to me to support them and adapt where necessary. Their challenges are mine so it’s important to me to find solutions for them. Evoy’s range is their target. Often self-imposed by them, but Norway at large, aims to be the world leader in developing this carbon free sector.
The afternoon is more recently spent on sea trials using craft fitted with our high output electric engines. A small collection of craft that we can use to demonstrate our expertise in the market, such as the new Axopar 25 Electric with our 300hp outboard, the Hydrolift 22 with our 120hp outboard and the incredible Goldfish X9 RIB with our 400hp inboard. 3pm is 10am EST, I start fielding calls from the USA so the afternoon, can be split between sea trials or back in the office to address those enquiries. It’s exciting that we have so much interest from the USA. At 5pm I am thinking about my family, if I possibly can, I will get back home for a family meal and saying good night to my children just 7 and 10 years old. It’s what it’s all about, preserving the world they will inherit from us. The way the business usually works is another influx of e-mails that need attention and I’m often working from home until midnight.
