In a bid to support Magenta in its strategy of business expansion plans outside India, Scott Pharr, who is the Global Managing Director at Accenture, has joined the Board of Advisors of the company’s executive team.
Houston-based Pharr will bring with him his industry-leading thought leadership, business insights and global experience to help the company in expanding its footprints.
He has more than 25 years of energy industry experience as a senior advisor to the C-suite, guiding his clients through many ambitious enterprise-wide transformations.
Throughout his career, Pharr has observed the global shift from a traditional energy market to renewables and clean mobility, and has developed a passion for sustainability.
Moreover, Pharr has taken up his advisory role in a personal capacity, as Accenture, being a professional services company, has no direct interests in Magenta.
Speaking upon his association with Magenta, Scott Pharr, Managing Director at Accenture, said, “Having experience of more than two decades in the energy space, I have worked in association with many multi-nationals and entrepreneurs, and I have seen the energy ecosystem grow.”
He further added “Magenta is a promising start-up that has been showing tremendous growth and innovations in the EV and renewables space in India. It will be a pleasure to provide insight to the team to help them grow their footprint beyond India.”
“In his position as a global advisor to Fortune 100 clients in the energy industry, and his vast experience in energy transition, Scott will help guide and shape Magenta’s clean energy innovation agenda and will support our ‘Made in India, made for the world’-themed international push,” said Maxson Lewis, Managing Director at Magenta.
Followed by HPCL seeding and support from Shell under its E4 cohort, Magenta was also recently selected by Microsoft for its global startup program. Since 2017, the company has been developing India-specific EV charging solutions and is now regarded as a ‘socket to software’ solutions provider.
