Mark Jamieson Becomes CODA CFO

Electric vehicle and battery manufacturer CODA announced today it has appointed Mark Jamieson to the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO), with responsibilities in finance, human resources, information technology and recruiting.

Prior to moving to CODA, Jamieson served as CFO for HD Supply and Ryder Systems. The biggest part of his career he spent with General Electric (GE), a company for which he worked for more than 30 years.

His career with GE took Jamieson through various positions, including domestic and international assignments. He ended his career at the company after serving as CFO of GE Industrial Systems.

"Mark's knowledge of nearly every facet of finance and his experience in global manufacturing organizations with highly complex supply chains will be vital to CODA's continued expansion and development,"
said Kevin Czinger, CODA CEO.

CODA announced earlier this year it will build a battery manufacturing facility in Ohio, after it will receive a grant from the Department of Energy. According to the company, the plant could employ more than 1,000 workers in its first stages. The facility in Ohio would be operated by Lio Energy Systems, a joint venture between CODA and Lishen Power Battery.

CODA will also bring to the US the Chinese made CODA Sedan, an electric vehicle based on the Chinese Hafei Seibao. The car uses an electric motor that offers 134 hp and 300 Nm of torque. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack developed by the company’s partner, Lishen.

"Introducing a new, transformational technology and reinventing the automotive category requires cross-functional experience and an entrepreneurial spirit. We are confident that Mark will have an immediate impact on our rapidly growing business,"
added Czinger.
