Cappello joins Nikola following a five-year tenure at Iwatani Corporation of America (ICA), a U.S. subsidiary of Iwatani Corporation, which is involved in industrial gases, cooking products, ceramics, electronics, plastics, chemicals, metals, and agri-bio markets.

Cappello served as executive advisor in 2018 before assuming the roles of chairman and CEO of ICA in 2019. 

“Having an accomplished energy executive of Joe’s caliber join Nikola as president of our energy division underscores our company’s vision and potential and sets us on a course to advance our hydrogen highway initiatives,” said Nikola president and CEO Steve Girsky.

Cappello earned a bachelor of science in business administration from Montclair State University and a master of business administration from New York University, Stern School of Business.
