Mr. Rama has nearly 30 years of experience with publicly-traded companies in growth stages. His leadership and experience will be a strong asset for Blink as it continues its global expansion and increases its charging station footprint.

“We are thrilled to have someone with Michael's knowledge and experience in navigating high-growth companies as part of Blink's senior management team. His leadership will be instrumental as we enter into the next phase of our growth,” stated Michael D. Farkas, Blink Founder and Chief Executive Officer.

“I am confident that Michael will further strengthen our leadership team with his strategic and financial knowledge and will be able to immediately add value to our short and long-term growth goals. I am looking forward to seeing the positive impact he will make within the management team, with investors, the Board of Directors, and all Blink stakeholders.”

In his new role, Mr. Rama will be focused on further strengthening the financial foundation of Blink and working to reduce market volatility through strong financial processes, smart investments, capital raises, and strategic opportunities.

Rama said, “I am very excited about joining the Blink team and am excited to furthering the build-out and strengthening of the finance and accounting functions in order to support the Company's drive towards growth. Blink is one of the most exciting companies in the explosive electric vehicle charging space, and I look forward to working with Mr. Farkas and the rest of the Blink team as we increase the footprint of the Company's charging stations.”

Rama will succeed Mr. Jonathan New, the Company's CFO since 2018 and a key officer following Blink's initial public offering on Nasdaq in February 2018. Mr. New will be stepping down in order to pursue other interests.

He joins Blink following nearly a decade with NV5 Global, where he served as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. From October 1997 until August 2011, Rama held various accounting and finance roles with AV Homes, Inc. (formerly known as Avatar Holdings, Inc.), including Principal Financial Officer, Chief Accounting Officer, and Controller. Rama has nearly 30 years of experience in construction, development, and real estate management.

Rama's depth of experience includes the strengthening of financial systems for high-growth companies, SEC reporting, due diligence and the leading of acquisitions, capital market transactions, and establishment and maintenance of internal controls. Mr. Rama earned a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from the University of Florida and is a Certified Public Accountant.
