Hypercraft, an electric powertrain manufacturing and engineering company with operations in California and Utah, has appointed former Maersk executive Brian Bowers as president.

Bowers, who has more than 24 years of business development experience, will support the growth and demand from global OEMs and the aftermarket, the company said, while working closely with co-founder and CEO Jake Hawksworth.

“Hypercraft takes all of my experience building teams and solving problems and brings it to bear at a company that has the greatest potential to impact the global EV industry,” said Bowers. “To make a name for Hypercraft and establish it as an industry leader is exactly the type of opportunity I love and am most excited to leverage my skills toward.” 

“We’re in a position of strength to build Hypercraft for the future,” said Hawksworth. “I have the greatest confidence in Brian’s ability to oversee our R&D and engineering departments, working with customers and team alike, supporting our expansion as we race to lead the powertrain manufacturing market.”
