LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Faraday Future (FF), a California-based global shared intelligent mobility ecosystem company, announced today the appointment of finance veteran executive Zvi Glasman as its Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Effective immediately, Glasman will serve as a key member of the leadership team of FF, leading corporate finance, investor relations, and capital management, as well as serving as a member of various key business committees within FF.
Reporting to Global CEO Carsten Breitfeld, Glasman comes to FF with over 30 years of professional experience and nearly 20 years of CFO experience. Glasman has a proven track record of developing and executing financial strategies and operational initiatives supporting rapid growth and increased profitability. His diverse background in financial management will help secure a sustainable path forward for FF in the global marketplace.
“I am very excited to join the FF team,” said Glasman. “I believe the potential for growth and value creation is tremendous, given the world-class management team, unique product line and strong technology. Having played a leadership role in similar business situations, I am confident that we can develop and execute plans to disrupt the electric vehicle (EV) industry. I look forward to becoming part of the FF family and partnering with the team to build the business.”
Upon his appointment as FF’s Global CEO in 2019, Dr. Carsten Breitfeld stated that personnel changes would be part of a series of key adjustments at FF, including strengthening the management team, accelerating product delivery planning and R&D, implementing operational cost reductions, and most importantly, fundraising and strengthening FF’s financing strategy.
“The onboarding of key critical talents, especially top industry leaders like Zvi are vital to the success of FF’s next stage of product delivery and funding,” said Dr. Breitfeld. “Zvi will bring fresh ideas and a wealth of financial experience to FF that will expand critical investor relationships to help grow the company as FF establishes a strong presence in the global EV marketplace.”
Prior to joining FF, Glasman most recently spent the past 12 years as CFO of FOX Factory Holdings (NASDAQ “FOXF”), a $4.5 billion public company. While there, he led the company’s initial public offering and several secondary offerings. He also was a key member of the management team that effectively executed growth and operational improvement strategies at FOX that resulted in the stock nearly quintupling and sales revenues growing at a compound annual rate of approximately 19%.
Glasman has held various senior financial roles at public and privately held companies. Prior to his tenure at FOX, Glasman served as CFO of three private equity backed companies and led the highly successful sales of two of those companies.
Glasman earned a Bachelor of Science degree from The Pennsylvania State University and obtained his CPA certificate from the State of California.
According to FF’s production launch plan, FF’s flagship vehicle – FF 91 – will start sales approximately twelve months following the close of a successful round of funding.
