Motivated by a passion to support the flourishing UK tech sector, Graham joins the board with immediate effect and will advise the business on hyper-scaling, as Oxbotica accelerates the commercialisation and deployment of its products.

Graham says, “Oxbotica’s self-driving technology platform will transform the way people and goods move. With its proven technology and an ecosystem of partners in place, the company is uniquely positioned for growth. I am delighted to be joining the Oxbotica board of directors at this exciting time and look forward to working with the team to bring the benefits of Universal Autonomy to everyone, everywhere.”

Gavin Jackson, CEO at Oxbotica, says, “Oxbotica is making the Earth move, safely and sustainably unleashing the benefits of self-driving vehicles to every person and every organisation on the planet. With his proven ability to support scaling up companies and bolstering their partnership ecosystems, Graham’s expertise makes him an invaluable addition to our vision and the board.”
