Veloce Co-Founder and VP of Product & Technology, Mike Schenck, Appointed to New Role in the Midst of Veloce’s Rapid Growth and Team Expansion
Loveland, CO, March 15, 2023 – Veloce Energy is excited to announce the promotion of Mike Schenck from Vice President of Product and Technology to its senior leadership team as the company’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Schenck, a power electronics engineer and Virginia Tech graduate, founded or served as a senior technical advisor to multiple companies and worked for several renewable energy manufacturers and developers, prior to co-founding Veloce in 2020. He brings nearly two decades of engineering and technology leadership experience.
“Having Mike on board as a co-founder was already a huge win for Veloce. This transition is well deserved as our growth trajectory continues,” said Jeff Wolfe, CEO, Veloce Energy and fellow co-founder. “In his new role, Mike will be tasked with growing the team and product and innovation roadmap. Like the rest of our leadership team, Mike thoroughly understands the biggest needs in today’s commercial energy storage and EV charging infrastructure and product development sectors. Perhaps more importantly, he understands the rapid pace at which these advancements need to be made.”
Under Schenck’s leadership, the company has achieved several major milestones including two this year: the UL9540A fire test certification giving Veloce’s VPort the energy storage industry’s smallest footprint and most recently the demonstration of the VPort’s Blackstart, dark-start/cold start capabilities in critical need scenarios
“We are facing unprecedented transformation and challenges in the energy space – especially at the Grid Edge. I truly believe Veloce’s rapidly developing technology suite will serve as a major part of the solution to many of these challenges. We must re-imagine the full-stack - everything from ways and means to software management to hard-tech to address the challenges of the coming energy transition. I’m excited to continue this venture,” Schenck said.
