Bhullar, the company’s CFO, is filling a vacancy left by former board member Shaun Greffard, who resigned last week.
ElectraMeccanica’s chairman Steven Sanders told investors that the firm was pleased to welcome Bhullar to its board.
“Bal’s extensive experience in both finance and capital markets, as well as her firsthand knowledge of our operations and vision has proven to be of considerable value to the company,” said Sanders in a statement.
“We thank Shaun Greffard for his dedication and over three years of service as a director of the company and extend best wishes to him as he pursues other personal and professional interests.”
Bhullar said she was “truly honored” by the appointment.
“Mobility is undergoing rapid change and ElectraMeccanica is in the forefront of a disrupted industry with the unique SOLO EV,” she said in a statement.
“I look forward to working closely with the board to represent our shareholders and drive long-term value creation.”
