Hyliion announces Andrew H. Card Jr. will join board

Following its announced agreement to merge with Tortoise Acquisition Corp., Hyliion Inc. has announced that Andrew H. Card Jr. will join the board of directors of the combined entity.

As an independent board member, Card will leverage his expertise in logistics, governmental affairs, compliance and operations to guide and inform Hyliion’s long-term objectives to deliver the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership and emissions performance for fleets, the company says. Card’s nomination to the combined entity’s board follows a career in public service as the former U.S. Secretary of Transportation under President George H. W. Bush and the White House Chief of Staff under President George W. Bush.

Card is the former president and CEO of the American Automobile Manufacturers Association, a trade association for U.S.-based automobile manufacturers, and previously served as the vice president of government relations for General Motors. He is currently on the boards of directors for Union Pacific Railroad, a position he has held since 2006, and Draganfly, a manufacturer in the commercial drone industry.

Card’s appointment is subject to the approval of the shareholders of TortoiseCorp.
