Neal Roche of Gridtest on panel for Green LAVA

The CEO of Gridtest is one of our favorite entrepreneurs – not only for the support he has shown for Green LAVA but because he has an innovative product in a great space and he is moving smartly forward.  So when he accepted an invitation to participate in this week’s Green LAVA event at ROC (604 Arizona, 90401) we were pleased.  Joining Neal on the panel will be Jordan Ramer (EV Connect), Lachlan McLean (US Renewables Group) and moderator Marty Metro (Used Cardboard Boxes).  Should be a fun evening.  Register at Green LAVA.

CEO and founder Neal Roche, a 20-year veteran of the test and measurement industry, leveraged his experience and industry knowledge to establish Gridtest Systems in 2011. In creating Gridtest Systems, he is addressing an entirely new set of  challenges faced by Electric Vehicle (EV) manufacturers and charging infrastructure providers that comes with using electricity to power clean transportation. Gridtest is the only EV charger test equipment manufacturer to address these challenges by effectively testing and verifying interoperability and performance, in accordance with US and International standards. Mr. Roche’s testing background provides him with a unique perspective to address R&D lab and field deployment testing.

Throughout his career, Mr. Roche honed his business expertise working sales, marketing and product line management in the US, Europe and Asia at both publicly traded companies and start-up enterprises. He earned his diploma in Telecommunications Engineering from Atlantic College in the Dublin, Ireland.

Please join us on Thursday evening for our first event at the new venue.  All attendees must register in advance.  SIG events are free to LAVA members; all others are $35.
