Appleton, Wis., September 12, 2022 – U.S. Gain, a leader in the development and distribution of alternative fuel and renewable energy, is excited to welcome Jerry Miller as their new director of business development for electrification.
In this role, Miller will lead U.S. Gain’s electric growth strategy—defining its diversification framework. Working alongside fleets and strategic partners, Miller’s been tasked with expanding upon and refining U.S. Gain’s existing suite of solutions as they relate back to electric vehicle (EV) charging, assessing new technology, and challenging market disruptors.
“Electric charging has secured its place in the energy transition. However, for commercial fleets, many have yet to trial this technology—translating to an unfamiliar landscape with unknown nuances for organizations, and an area of opportunity for us,” said Stephanie Lowney, vice president of marketing, strategy, & innovation for U.S. Gain. “How the market has come to understand electrification will soon look vastly different, in large, due to new technology. With Jerry’s addition, fleets can stay abreast of these changes knowing our EV strategy is built with tomorrow in mind.”
Bearing a background in supply chain and operations management, Miller served eight years and completed an Iraq deployment with the U.S. Army—being honorably discharged at the rank of Sergeant E-5. From there, he transitioned to various roles at Oshkosh Corporation where he co-led a team that built out a fully operational robotic welding department, from the ground up, in less than a year. Miller also coordinated cross-functional efforts across five aftermarket departments to develop support solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense as well as international customers.
Most recently, Miller spent nearly ten years at Leonardo DRS’s Naval Power Division. As a senior program manager, he led a team responsible for the power distribution equipment on Ford-Class aircraft carriers—maintaining and upgrading equipment on the CVN 78 and 79 as well as building equipment for the CVN 80 and 81. Previously, Miller’s team designed, qualified, assembled, delivered, and integrated power distribution systems for amphibious transport warships (LPD 28+) and supported the Columbia-Class submarine program.
“I’m thrilled to begin this next chapter of my career with U.S. Gain—bringing our electrification offering to new and existing customers,” shared Miller. “With electric charging, fleets can achieve lower operating costs and make actionable progress on their sustainability goals. Organizations shouldn’t have to pivot their adoption strategy to fit into a preexisting mold, rather have a partner that works alongside them, taking their unique circumstances into account.”
“Welcoming Jerry to the U.S. Gain team is an exciting milestone for our company and our customers. Especially now, as fleets evaluate the role electrification has within their fleet, the question often turns to who (and how many partners) they’ll have to work with to account for the many moving pieces,” noted Mike Koel, president of U.S. Gain. “Jerry ensures this coordination doesn’t fall on fleets. From vetting partnerships and technology to having established relationships with vehicle manufacturers, he will help organizations customize their experience, from start to finish.”
