Ramya WinsteadDirector of Product
Ramya Winstead, as Prologis Mobility's Director of Product, leads the commercial structuring, pricing, packaging, and value articulation of Mobility's offers across Workplace, OnDemand, Depot, and Hub and segments globally. Product, in this context, is the ultimate offer our customers are buying (i.e., Charging-as-a-Service) and the contracting, pricing, guarantees, service agreements, etc., that comprise those offers.
Ms. Winstead is a high-energy executive with proven leadership abilities in business strategy, development of hardware and software products/solutions for infrastructure, power, and energy systems, and managing large cross-functional, multi-vendor, interdisciplinary teams. In her 15 years of experience, she has demonstrated the ability to create successful business relationships with customers, strategic suppliers, and third-party partners and deliver financial targets and performance metrics needed for the long-term scaled operability of products and solutions.
Prior to joining Prologis, Ms. Winstead led an interdisciplinary team at Amazon Logistics (AMZL) to build and launch products, operational tools, and programmatic mechanisms needed to electrify AMZL delivery stations and scale their EV fleet (Rivian delivery vans). Her team owned the end-to-end execution for hardware and software product development, provided operational product support, performed systems engineering, established industry partnerships, and procured and managed the supply chain for a portfolio of EV charging and infrastructure products. Their work enabled 1,000+ electric delivery vehicles (EDVs) to deliver 5 million packages in more than 100 cities across the U.S. in 2022 and eliminate millions of metric tons of carbon from tail-pipe emissions every year.
Additionally, Ms. Winstead played a key Product role at Amazon Web Services (AWS) and led teams of both hardware and software product managers to deliver infrastructure products and solutions for AWS data centers. She also worked at NRG and later Clearway Energy in Asset Management across Solar, Thermal, and Fuel Cell asset classes, where she was deeply involved in financial analysis, acquisition and divestiture assessments, and developing commercial structures.
Ramya Winstead’s Session(s):
3:30 pm–4:00 pm | Fri, March 22, 2024
Freight infrastructure, including road transport, is the lifeblood of the United States economy and a subset of critical infrastructure. Early-stage electrification plans and proposed market solutions for essential and heavily trafficked domestic freight corridors in the United States have a long way to go. Regional planning efforts need to be coordinated to ensure that a unified, right-sized network is created.
INF and its partner ecosystem are redefining what the future of an electrified, interconnected interstate can look like. Their plans for zero-emission charging infrastructure for medium and heavy-duty trucking will enable widespread adoption by producing the greatest co-benefits for road transport stakeholders. Enter the “Evergreen Charging System,” a win for investors, utilities, the freight industry, and the planet.
Join this panel with INF Associates, Prologis, and eMobility Advisors to learn:
- How the “Evergreen Charging System” addresses pain points of infrastructure costs, reliability, total cost of ownership, permitting and interconnection timelines, disaster resilience, national security, and more.
- How policy, development, and supply chains/third-party logistics/real estate/energy solutions can work together toward a sustainable future for medium- and heavy-duty transportation decarbonization.
- Learn how partnership is the new leadership and how collaboration of research, data, and development leads to the best and most rapidly deployable solution.
- Learn from eMobility Advisors how the US is developing a National Freight Strategy for the Electrification of Medium and Heavy-Duty Vehicles and how states like California are pursuing Energization Timelines to support and solve the short-term and long-term challenges.
