“Kerri is a welcome addition to the Coda team and will be instrumental in architecting a fully integrated, customer-centric Coda brand experience,” said Kevin Czinger, President and CEO, Coda Automotive. “With a history of taking an innovative approach to automotive marketing and not settling for industry standards, Kerri’s leadership style aligns perfectly with our entrepreneurial business model.”



Martin has more than 15 years of experience as a creative marketing executive, launching, building and reinvigorating some of the world’s most iconic pop culture brands including Harley-Davidson, BMW Motorcycles, MINI and Volkswagen.

“I’m thrilled to be part of the electric vehicle movement, especially with Coda, a company that is intent on disrupting the category conventions and has the vision to reinvent the car buying and ownership experience,” said Martin.

 Martin, 39, held various executive marketing positions at MINI USA and Volkswagen from 2000 to 2007. From 1997 to 2000, she led the repositioning of the BMW Motorcycles brand and managed the Harley-Davidson MotorClothes marketing programs from 1993-1997. Martin graduated cum laude with a BA in Marketing from

the University of Wisconsin-Madison and was the first client ever elected to the Board of Directors of The One Club. She began her career with advertising and public relations agency Laughlin Constable.
