Transport-focused data science and software engineering company Miralis, have announced Judith Halkerston OBE as Chair of their board to support the company’s growth plans. The announcement comes after Miralis secured investment for its flagship product, electric vehicle charge point management platform, Fuuse.
Judith is a well-known figure in the tech industry, with an impressive career within organisations including BT, Logica and Steria.
For the last eight years, Judith has been working in non-executive board level roles supporting and accelerating growth in technology companies such as Ntegra, Symphonic Software and OnGen.
Her achievements were formally recognised last year with the presentation of an OBE, seeing Judith honoured for her services to the UK’s digital economy.
Judith joins Miralis to support CEO Michael Gibson and the board with their next phase of growth; supporting decisions and go-to-market strategies that will accelerate the Fuuse platform to become the enterprise level charge point management system of choice.
Judith Halkerston OBE, said: “I am delighted to join Miralis as they embark on this exciting next chapter, and the journey poses a fresh challenge for me too. It’s rare to join a thriving start up where all the leads are inbound, so our focus will be ensuring we identify and prioritise the right opportunities at the right time.
“There is clearly a very large appetite for Fuuse, and together with the foundations of a passionate team, and the backing and support of investors and fellow entrepreneurs, there is a real opportunity for Fuuse to become a household name amongst fleets, installers and the public.”
Michael Gibson, CEO of Miralis and Fuuse, said: “It is an honour to welcome Judith to the team and work with her to take Fuuse to the success we know can be achieved. Judith comes with an incredible record of achievement and we couldn’t be more delighted and eager to learn from her expertise.
“This is another big step in our journey. With our successes to date, and the demand for Fuuse growing rapidly across sectors, the timing is perfect to utilise all the support Judith has to offer, and to help make Fuuse a core player in the UK’s EV revolution.”
