“I have had the good fortune to be involved with a rapidly developing technology such as wireless charging, and have evaluated many different systems within this space. I believe wireless charging is the future, and I also believe Momentum’s technology is the most cost-effective and safest,” said Miller.

Miller joins an advisory board that is chaired by former General Motors executive Tony Posawatz, who was the General Manager of the successful Chevrolet Volt program as well as the former CEO at Fisker Automotive.
