Super73 co-founder John Kim has been named Volcon’s Chief Executive Officer in advance of the market launch of the Stag UTV. As a Veteran, Kim says the company’s first priority is to deliver units to the Army Corps of Engineers and immediately begin shipping units to dealers thereafter. Kim made his comments while tooling through Volcon’s production facility:

"His skillset and background in building companies, designing products for manufacturing, and successfully launching them on the market is what Volcon needs at this stage in our company's life,” says Christian Okonsky, Chairman of the Board of Volcon. “John has a passion for building companies and products that appeal to consumers. With the imminent launch of the Stag, we have found the right leader to take this product to market and showcase its capabilities."

“I’m extremely excited to be joining the passionate team here at Volcon,” adds Kim. “Volcon is poised to become one of the most recognized brands in the off-road powersports industry with the launch of the Stag. As a board member, I could see the potential and having spent time meeting with the manufacturer, part suppliers and Volcon employees, I can see that the Stag will be a very special and market defining product. There isn’t anything out there in the off-road EV space that has the performance of the Stag. The suppliers of the key components are industry leaders. The assembly facility in Mexico is up and running and ready for production. My focus is to get the Stag launched and build the Volcon brand in the off-road industry.”

Kim received an MA in Design from Stanford University in 2001. In 2003, he founded U-Life, an internet enabled home appliance company in South Korea, which was acquired by LG in 2006. Earlier, he was the principal designer for Yahoo Search, a car designer at Honda, and a former U.S. Army paratrooper. He is currently a private investor and has served on Volcon's Board of Directors as an independent director since July 2021.
