Dr David Finn

Founder, Executive Director and Chief Growth Officer

David, along with Paul Sernia and James Kennedy, founded Tritium in 2001 to commercialise the lightweight motor control technology they developed for their solar car racing team.

At Tritium, David has been intrinsically involved in the development of technical and specialised projects which not only include the company’s award-winning and world-leading EV DC fast chargers but also electric submarines, cryogenic cooling systems, underground mining vehicles, and uncrewed aerial vehicles.

David was Tritium’s CEO from its founding until earlier this year when he stepped down to focus on applying his strategic and innovative leadership, and broad management and engineering experience to his new role as Chief Growth Officer. David remains an Executive Director on Tritium’s board.

David has a PhD and a Bachelor of Engineering (hons) and Bachelor of Science from the University of Queensland.
