ECOtality Appoints Brandon Hurlbut To Board Of Directors

SAN FRANCISCO, July 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ECOtality, Inc. (Nasdaq:ECTY), a leader in clean electric transportation, today announced the appointment of Brandon Hurlbut, the former Chief of Staff for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), to its Board of Directors, effective July 5, 2013. Mr. Hurlbut is ECOtality's seventh member of the Board and sixth independent director.

As the former Chief of Staff for the DOE, Mr. Hurlbut managed the department's principal initiatives including oversight of the federal agency's day-to-day operations, $27 billion budget and 115,000-person workforce. In addition, he led the transition team from Energy Secretary Chu to current Secretary Moniz before departing the DOE in June. Previously, Mr. Hurlbut served as the Deputy Chief of Staff for the DOE.

"Brandon is long-time advocate for promoting sustainable energy policies and solutions and we are excited to have him join our Board," said Ravi Brar, CEO of ECOtality. "His knowledge of energy innovation, federal energy policies and legal acumen brings a welcomed and complimentary expertise to our distinguished Board of Directors. We look forward to Brandon's contributions as we expand the Blink® Network and help to advance the prevalence of electric vehicles."

Mr. Hurlbut began his career with the Obama Administration by working in the White House as the Deputy Director of Cabinet Affairs. There he served as the President's liaison to Department of Agriculture, Department of Transportation, Department of Interior, Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy. Before that, Mr. Hurlbut served on the Presidential Transition Team as senior personnel staff for the energy and environment cabinet agencies.

"During my service at the Department of Energy, I was committed to the President's goal to accelerate electrification of our transportation sector," said Mr. Hurlbut. "I was proud to support a DOE team that made substantial progress on that goal with programs such as 'EV Everywhere' and the battery innovation hub. I believe the future is bright for the electric vehicle industry where ECOtality is a leader. I am grateful to Ravi and the rest of the ECOtality board for the opportunity to continue my efforts to grow the EV industry and help them expand their business in this dynamic market."
