Faraday Grid appoints new Chief Financial Officer to support accelerated global growth

Faraday Grid, the energy technology company, has appointed Mark Corben as Chief Financial Officer to support the company’s accelerated global growth.

Mark previously spent five years as the Chief Financial Officer of Tideway, the investor-owned utility company building the Thames Tideway Tunnel in London. He was part of the executive team which set up the company and he led the process to raise equity and the multi-format debt capital markets programme. He previously worked for 17 years at investment bank UBS focusing on corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions and capital raising across Europe.

Mark joins Faraday Grid as the company scales rapidly across the globe to help communities meet the challenge of resolving the energy trilemma. Faraday Grid recently opened new Innovation Centres in Washington D.C. and the Czech Republic, with more global milestones expected throughout 2019.

Andrew Scobie, Founder and CEO of Faraday Grid, said: “Faraday Grid’s purpose is to provide clean, affordable and reliable energy to everyone. Mark’s perspective and experience, developed through his leadership roles, will ensure he makes a significant contribution to building Faraday as a primary systems provider to the future energy ecosystem.”

Mark Corben commented: “I am thrilled to be joining Faraday Grid and playing my part as it transforms the electricity system. I look forward to building our finance capability to support the company as it accelerates its growth.”
