We’re living through a shift in the automotive sector that may be as profound as the invention of the automobile itself: the electric vehicle
revolution. Crain’s Notable Leaders in EV are heading up the charge at automakers and suppliers large and small, developing innovative battery
technology and charging solutions, implementing electrification plans for businesses and cities and training up the next generation of EV leaders.
Michael Bucci is responsible for building the e-Mobility business unit for Alta, a $1.2 billion equipment dealer with 60 locations across 15 states. In part, the company services fuel cells, lithium-ion batteries and DC fast chargers. Bucci’s work includes choosing OEM partners, developing its energy division and staffing
“We are at the (precipice) of a global electrification movement. Michael, who is assembling a best-in-class team, embodies Alta’s One Team philosophy and is a firm believer in ‘a rising tide lifts all boats,’” said Alta CEO Ryan Greenawalt. “His deep knowledge of vehicle electrification platforms and renewable energy solutions have helped secured key vendor relationships (with companies) like Nikola Motor and Hydrofleet.”
Bucci’s most significant win has been becoming Nikola’s exclusive Northeast region dealer and receiving one of the first Nikola Tre BEVs in the country. The Tre BEV is a battery-electric daycab semi-truck.
