The Presenter

John Gordon, Co-Founder, EVEN Electric

John Gordon is a certified electrician and has 15 years experience in the electrical contracting and heavy equipment industry. He began his career by becoming a partner at W.L. Gordon Electric, a family company focused on industrial electrical projects in Newfoundland and Labrador. John provided electric services and heavy equipment leasing for W.L. Gordon Electric and continues to provide oversight to the business as it continues to successfully operate today. In 2009, John established Newfound Electric, focused on electrical, civil contracting and heavy equipment. This company also continues successful operations today.

John began his love of electric vehicles a few years ago and began to realize its inherent business potential. He established Green Rock E.V.S. to prepare and build a business model to capitalize on the potential growth opportunities presented by electric vehicles and associated products and services. He has devoted his energies to becoming an expert in electric vehicles and has used his electrical knowledge to be able to service EV’s hands on.

Recently, John has begun a new business venture in the Electric Vehicle world by co-founding EVEN Electric – the first global sales and distribution network for electric transportation, offering multi-brand solutions through a refreshingly innovative customer experience.
