California-based Renovo has hired Kate Jack as its head of European operations, in the latest stage of its bid to bring fully automated fleets to Europe.
Ahead of coming European announcements this spring, Renovo, the industry-standard open platform for autonomous vehicles, has appointed Kate Jack as head of European operations. Jack brings more than 20 years of experience in technology – specifically in the development of smart cities. Renovo plans to announce more details behind its European presence and fleet deployments in the spring.
“Throughout my career, I’ve been exposed to the technologies that are coming together to create the future of urban life,” said Jack.
“Bringing safe, clean, reliable and autonomous transportation to London and the rest of Western Europe has long been a dream of mine and I’ve found the perfect home to do it in Renovo.”
Jack has a strong background in clean energy, serving as head of innovation at both RWE Power and Innogy Consulting. She has years of experience running startups, previously serving as head of operations for UK-based transportation startup aiPod.
Born and raised in the UK, Jack is passionate about bringing the benefits of autonomous transportation to the European market and believes that the UK and Western Europe are uniquely positioned to implement and benefit from innovations in transportation.
