Seasoned C-suite executive will leverage experience in leading and investing in early-stage, high-growth technology companies
ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- NovaCHARGE, Inc., today announced the addition of Frank Plastina as an independent member of its Board of Directors.
Mr. Plastina is a highly successful C-level leader in technology firms, including Wolfspeed, a leader in Silicon Carbide and GaN-on-Silicon Carbide energy optimizing semiconductors.
