Levy previously served as director of policy and strategy at Vision Ridge Partners, where he remains an advisor. In his new role at EVgo, he will work hand-in-hand with the rest of the executive team in exploring new partnerships and business opportunities. Levy’s federal experience includes six years of service in the Obama administration at the U.S. Department of Energy and the White House, as well as prior service on Capitol Hill as policy advisor to then-Congressman Rahm Emanuel.
