Melbourne, Australia – Lumen Freedom, a world leading manufacturer of wireless electric vehicle charging (WEVC) systems, today announced the appointment of former Qualcomm Halo General Manager, Steve Pazol, as a strategic advisor.

Pazol will be responsible for supporting Lumen Freedom’s management team on intellectual property, business and growth strategy, whilst building strategic partnerships and helping the business achieve further success in the US.

Pazol is a successful entrepreneur, CEO and general manager and has a 20+ year track record of managing successful start-ups in technology and emerging markets. Pazol led the global business for Qualcomm Halo (the wireless electric vehicle charging division) which was successfully sold to WiTricity in 2019. Steve also led Qualcomm’s WiPower (consumer electronics and wearables) and ETA Semiconductor businesses.

Commenting on the new appointment, General Manager Rod Wilson said,

“Steve brings a wealth of experience and valuable knowledge to the team here at Lumen Freedom.”

“I have known the team at Lumen Freedom for some years and have always been impressed with both their vision and ’can-do’ attitude,” said Pazol.

“They have taken a leading position in bringing this technology to the market, as they are demonstrating with their supply of WEVC systems for the McLaren Speedtail Hyper-GT. I am excited to be working with them as they advance their business to the next level.”

Wireless electric vehicle charging is a simple solution for charging electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles, without the fuss of having to plug-in. The efficiency levels of the Lumen Freedom WEVC systems are comparable to plug-in or conductive charging systems.
