Veteran CFO, Entrepreneur and SPAC leader will help steer company’s growth and renewable delivery strategy
OTTAWA, Ontario – August 11, 2021 – GoFor, North America’s leading marketplace for last mile, renewable logistics, announced today that Stefan Krause joined its Board of Directors on June 30, bringing deep expertise in commercial electric delivery vehicles (EVs) and access to capital markets through special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). Krause will replace Co-Founder and former GoFor CEO Brad Rollo as Chairman and board director. Rollo stepped down from the CEO role in June 2021 to deal with the recurrence of a health issue. As Chairman, Krause will guide the company in creating smart last mile solutions that are simple, seamless and sustainable. He will help GoFor achieve its purpose in making cities more livable with new and alternative delivery methods including EVs.
Krause brings a wealth of SPAC expertise and success to GoFor and is currently the Chief Investment Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Levere Holdings Acquisition Corp., a SPAC focused on Mobility in Europe. Prior to this, he was a successful entrepreneur in the EV industry, serving as Co-Founder, CEO and Chairman of Canoo; President of Fisker and COO of Farraday Future. Krause has significant capital markets expertise and previously served as CFO at BMW Group and Deutsche Bank. Krause has also served on many boards, including Rolls Royce, Allianz AG, Rocket Internet, Wiesmann Automotive, Postbank AG and BHF Bank.
“Stefan’s addition to the GoFor Board of Directors comes at a transformative moment as we prepare to embark on rapid international growth,” said Ian Gardner, CEO of GoFor. “As we pursue our vision of becoming the #1 renewable delivery company in the world, Stefan’s experience in the capital markets and specifically with SPAC transactions, governance and financial oversight will pave the way for GoFor to take advantage of extraordinary market demand for renewable last mile delivery solutions. His electric vehicle subscription service and leasing experience will provide valuable guidance as we forge strategic partnerships, pursue acquisitions and continue to bring investors on board to fund our ambitious strategy.”
“I’m very excited to join the board and help establish GoFor as the leading provider of renewable delivery services and solutions,” said Krause. “Sustainability is a top priority for both logistics providers and their customers, and delivery companies that can provide net-zero, carbon-negative last mile package delivery are well positioned to win in this market. GoFor’s world-class leadership team, powerful technology platform, impressive roster of anchor customers and strong financial condition all position the company to be a leader in the sustainable delivery space.”
