Volta Trucks names Duncan Forrester chief communications officer

Prior to running his own consultancy, Forrester served as vice president and global head of PR for the start-up electric Polestar brand

Volta Trucks has appointed Duncan Forrester to the role of chief communications officer. 

Forrester joins the Volta Trucks management team with “extensive experience” in PR for start-up and electric vehicle companies. As a consultant, he had supported Volta Trucks since mid-2020 as well as helping a number of other innovative start-up automotive brands. 

Prior to running his own consultancy, Forrester served as vice president and global head of PR for the start-up electric Polestar brand, having previously worked for BMW Group, Volvo Cars in Gothenburg and McLaren Automotive.

Rob Fowler, chief executive officer of Volta Trucks, said;  “I’m delighted to welcome Duncan to Volta Trucks. He has played a significant role in the company as a consultant over the past year, including the launch of the Volta Zero and as we have developed our presence in the marketplace. 

“I am therefore pleased that we have the opportunity to bring him in-house as part of the Management Team. Duncan’s appointment is a great example of how we are now scaling and growing the company and bringing in experts in their respective fields as we proceed towards the production of the first Volta Zero vehicles later in 2021.”
