AmpUp, an EV charging software provider, today announced appointing Alexander Shartsis as its first Chief Revenue Officer, according to a press release.
The company says in the new role Shartsis will be responsible for driving company growth, and leading its sales and partnership organization. He joins the company following senior roles in technology sales, partnerships and corporate development.
Prior to joining AmpUp, Shartsis acted as Head of Acquisitions at Opendoor, where he led the acquisition of multiple tech companies for the growing real estate marketplace proptech.
“I’m excited to join the AmpUp team and work with some of the smartest people in clean energy. AmpUp has built an industry leading product and, with their unique pure play software approach, stands to take EV charging to the next level,” Shartsis said.
AmpUp says the appointment comes following its partnership with fleet leader Holman, and is intended to pave the way for the company’s next phase of growth “as a ubiquitous EV charging solution.”
The appointment also follows AmpUp’s Fleet Manager product launch, designed to serve businesses’ EV needs. The company said its charging network has integrated within over 20 charge station manufacturers, and says its Community Manager solution is currently used by workplaces, universities, multifamily units and retail property owners and operators.
Why proptech integration is more important than ever
“The reality is that, in this day and age, if you make your product more open, you make it more flexible, and the better you can integrate with other solutions, the more value it adds to the clients,” Rently CEO Merrick Lackner said.

“We are excited to welcome Alex to the team to help further our mission of being the most deployable and available charging solution in the market. Alex brings extensive experience in scaling companies with a focus on sales and customer experience. We are excited to welcome Alex to our leadership team to build on our success to date,” stated Tom Sun, AmpUp co-founder and CEO, in the release.
The move is similar to Xeal’s recent hiring of Chris Moreno as VP of Real Estate and Channel Partnerships hire, and shows a continuing integration trend for electric vehicles and charging infrastructure in real estate.
