Hyzon onboards John Edgley as President of International Operations

Hyzon Motors Inc., a global supplier of zero-emission heavy-duty fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), recently announced John Edgley has been appointed President of International Operations, effective immediately. In his new role, Edgley will oversee and manage Hyzon’s Europe, Australia, and New Zealand business regions, including full commercial, operational, and financial responsibilities.

In his expanded role, Edgley will be responsible for leading the global cabover FCEV program. The cabover vehicle configuration is preferred across Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Edgley’s appointment ensures the development of this market critical platform is integrated and standardized across the global organization.

Edgley joined Hyzon Motors in July 2021 and has been heavily engaged in shaping the company’s global strategic efforts as part of Hyzon’s global executive leadership team. As Managing Director of Hyzon Motors Australia since joining, Edgley has also built and managed the regional business in Australia and New Zealand. Under Edgley’s leadership, the Melbourne, Australia based team has delivered Australia’s first domestic assembly facility for fuel cell electric trucks, secured Hyzon’s first ISO accreditations for safety, quality and the environment, and led the design, engineering and development of the Hyzon rigid vehicle platform.

“John Edgley’s appointment extends the technical, organizational, and operational expertise of our European team,” said Hyzon President and interim CEO Parker Meeks. “Under John’s leadership, the Hyzon Australia and New Zealand organization has been built and has successfully brought the Hyzon rigid truck platform forward in conjunction with Hyzon’s global engineering function, embodying our mission for global collaboration across the organization. I am confident that with John’s operational knowledge and industry experience, our ongoing development and delivery of the cabover vehicle platform will be integrated across the organization to further leverage our core fuel cell technology and global development.”

“This is a pivotal moment for Hyzon and we have a huge opportunity ahead to deliver innovative solutions to decarbonize the transportation industry,” said Edgley. “I’m delighted and honored to serve as Hyzon’s President of International Operations and work closely with the European team to steer the business toward a standardized, delivery-focused future. I firmly believe in Hyzon’s proprietary fuel cell technology, local engineering expertise, and R&D capabilities to accelerate the clean energy transition and am committed to advancing this momentum by adhering to our long-term growth strategy.”

Before joining Hyzon, Edgley worked as Chief Investment Officer for a multinational industrial conglomerate with operations in water and wastewater treatment, marine construction, infrastructure, and diversified portfolio investment. Earlier in his career, he served as Director and Managing Director for Australian companies specializing in private equity, strategic new business creation, and healthcare. Edgley holds an MBA from Harvard University and a bachelor’s degree in Engineering from the University of Melbourne.
