Most recently, Hartman served as CEO of ubitricity, a provider of on-street charging for electric vehicles. Under his leadership, he transformed this company into a leading charge point operator and led its sale to Shell. Notably, the deal was advised by Improved, which provided sell-side advisory services to Hartman and his team.

Prior to this, Hartman worked at the Dutch-German transmission system operator TenneT for two decades, where he held numerous executive positions.

Welcoming Hartman to the network, Frank Verbeek, Managing Partner at Improved, said: “Energy Transition starts with understanding the dynamics. CleanTech is not the easiest segment to innovate. With Lex on board, we add deep understanding of the segment. It is an honour to have him on our team.”

“Partnering with Lex fits very well in our ambition to expand our leading position in the international energy and mobility corporate finance domain. We are glad to enrich our market intelligence and industry relations, and thereby improve the quality of our service offering to clients globally,” added Bas Hendriks, Director at Improved.

Founded in 2013, Improved is an Amsterdam-based corporate finance boutique with around twenty dealmakers. The firm specialises in deals in the technology, energy and mobility sectors.

Alongside his associate position with Improved, Hartman is an investor and advisor and non-executive board member to multiple companies in the energy transition and e-mobility domain.
