Wallbox has appointed Beatriz González to the board on completion of Wallbox’s business combination with Kensington Capital Acquisition.
A financial and investment industry veteran, González brings experience in advising and amplifying growth of leading start-ups within transportation and broader technology sectors.
She has also served as a board member for almost all Spain’s unicorn start-ups to date, including Wallbox, Cabify and Glovo.
In addition to board positions with other organisations including Spotahome, Filmin and Idealista, González is founder and managing partner of Seaya Ventures, a European & Latin-American Venture Capital firm focused on accelerating startup growth; counting more than US$350m of assets under management.
“Beatriz González has a proven track record with aiding and advising some of the most promising transportation and technology companies in the world,” said Wallbox co-founder and CEO, Enric Asunción.
“Her experience strategising with organisations to help them achieve and maintain a global presence will play a vital role in helping us continue to scale our business and expand into new markets and territories.”
With the latest appointment, Wallbox’s board, following the business combination with Kensington, now includes Enric Asunción, Anders Pettersson, Francisco Riberas, Diego Diaz, Pol Soler and Beatriz González.
“The addition of Beatriz González to Wallbox’s Board of Directors is a testament to the promise of Wallbox’s market dominance and continued growth potential,” added Kensington chairman and CEO, Justin Mirro.
“Her seasoned background in investments, corporate strategy and business development, will play a crucial role in our expansion as Wallbox continues its growth trajectory and prepares to enter the public markets.”
In June, Wallbox and Kensington Capital Acquisition announced a business combination, expected to result in Wallbox becoming a publicly traded company on the NYSE.
