Nxu Announces CFO Transition

MESA, Ariz., Dec. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nxu Inc., (NASDAQ: NXU) (“Nxu”, “the Company”), a domestic technology company developing and manufacturing innovative EV charging and energy storage solutions for the infrastructure we need to power our electrified future, announced that it has accepted the resignation of Apoorv Dwivedi, its Chief Financial Officer, who will be pursuing other opportunities. Nxu has appointed Sarah Wyant, its current Vice President of Finance, as Interim Chief Financial Officer. Dwivedi will continue to support the company in an advisory capacity as needed through the first quarter of 2024. 

“Nxu has built a strong bench of talent on the finance team, with deep experience in public company operations and capital markets expertise. Sarah has been critical to building out financial rigor within Nxu since she joined us earlier this year, and she has a strong understanding of our business strategy and long-term plans,” said Mark Hanchett, Chairman and CEO at Nxu. “I’m confident in her leadership and look forward to continue advancing Nxu’s mission alongside her.”

“I am sincerely grateful for the opportunity to have been part of this incredible journey, working alongside a dedicated team and witnessing the growth of our company,” said Dwivedi. “As I continue to partner with Sarah and her team on this seamless transition throughout the first quarter of next year, I am confident in the future of Nxu. The company boasts a remarkable product that addresses a critical gap in the electrification industry, contributing to the sustainable future of transportation. With a clear, strategic path forward, I have full confidence in the talented team that will continue to drive Nxu toward even greater success.” 

“First, I want to thank Apoorv for his leadership and vote of confidence as we enter this transition. Building on the strong foundation of continuous improvement and collaboration I worked to establish in our internal financial operations, we will continue to create value for our shareholders, capitalizing on the momentum Nxu has generated in recent months,” said Wyant. “With our impressive financial team helping to lead the way, we have an exciting future ahead and I'm proud to be in the position to contribute so significantly during this time.”

Wyant joined Nxu in May of 2023 and has driven critical process creation and improvement across FP&A, tax, audit, accounting, stock-based compensation, and procurement functions. Wyant brings almost 20 years of experience in corporate accounting and finance, cross-functional team leadership, and business strategy to Nxu. Prior to joining Nxu, she served as Associate Director of Accounting and Financial Planning & Analysis for Carvana, a publicly traded Fortune 500 automotive e-commerce company. At Carvana, Wyant worked to build the corporate accounting function from the ground up, implementing processes and systems while hiring teams of strong contributors who believed in the organization’s business mission. She crafted the organization's financial strategy within its retail business function, where she oversaw the unit’s financial operations and drove enterprise-wide change with her tactical and progressive approach to achieving operational change and financial impact. Prior to her career at Carvana, Wyant worked in public practice as Audit Manager at Eide Bailly LLP in Phoenix and Audit Supervisor at BKD CPAs & Advisors in Denver.
