Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ: MULN), an emerging electric vehicle (“EV”) manufacturer, has hired Ronal Dixon as its general manager of government sales; Dixon will focus on U.S. government vehicle procurement programs. With more than four decades of experience, Dixon has an impressive resume, including serving for more than 20 years as a leader on General Motors’ Federal Government Fleet Sales Team, responsible for all aspects of bidding, contract approvals and price negotiations; over the course of his career, Dixon was responsible for selling more than 500,000 units to the U.S. federal government. The strategic hire aligns with Mullen’s 100% EV product portfolio and the federal government’s plans to increase their fleets with electric vehicles, the company said, noting that the Biden administration issued an executive order last year mandating that the government replace its entire fleet of some 650,000 vehicles with American-made EVs According to the announcement, Dixon will concentrate his efforts on establishing Mullen’s EV lineup, including its Commercial Class 1-3 EVs and Bollinger Motors, within the overall federal fleet procurement process. “This was a strategic move on our part to bring Ron in and open the door to government fleet sales opportunities,” said Mullen Automotive CEO and chair David Michery in the press release. “His experience is a perfect match for us and our vision for commercial EV sales success.”
