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.
Stephen has a background in the energy sector and is a Director of the St Baker Energy Innovation Fund (StBEIF), an organisation founded in 2012 by his father, Trevor, to provide financial backing, business input, and mentors to founders of new disruptive technology businesses aiming to break into global markets.
Stephen was appointed to the Tritium Board in 2013.
James has more than twenty years of experience in embedded power electronics design and manufacturing and has been a key member of the Tritium team since founding the company in 2001 with David Finn and Paul Sernia. He has directed engineering operations at Tritium since 2005.
James has had a long association with electric vehicles. Prior to Tritium, James was involved with the University of Queensland’s SunShark solar racing car. In 1999, team SunShark took third placed at the World Solar Challenge and was awarded the GM Sunraycer Award for Technical Achievement. For the team, this award represented technical innovation that could be translated to commercial, real-world applications. As a result, James, David and Paul founded Tritium in 2001, selling motor controllers based on the SunShark technology to other solar car teams worldwide. Since then, the company has continued to grow through research and investment to be one of the leading innovators, manufacturers, and suppliers of DC EV fast chargers globally.
James is currently Tritium’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and also leads the Tritium software team. As CTO, James has oversight of all aspects of charger design and technology and is particularly involved with forward-looking work in the standards and regulatory areas.
As leader of the software team, James oversees the development of all on-board and off-board software for Tritium’s chargers. This is a critical role as the software is becoming increasingly more complex, regulated, and standards based. However, Tritium’s decision to develop its own charger software is a key differentiator for the company as this means that Tritium has complete control over all aspects of development, manufacturing, and deployment of its products. James and the Software Team ensure that the software in Tritium’s chargers is purpose-designed and fit-for-purpose. This control over software development permitted Tritium to be the first company in the world to implement Plug and Charge (ISO 15118) which enables EV and charging equipment to communicate, authenticate, and transact seamlessly via the charging cable.
James has also been integral in other non-EV battery storage projects, ranging from James Cameron’s Deepsea Challenger submarine to multi-MWh stationary storage systems in green buildings.
James has a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) from the University of Queensland and is a Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland.
Paul, along with David Finn and James Kennedy, founded Tritium in 2001 to commercialise the lightweight motor control technology they developed for their solar car racing team.
Paul has more than 15 years of experience working with technology-based companies globally. He has also worked closely with universities and research institutes across a broad range of scientific fields including energy, engineering, and nanotechnology.
Paul is passionate about electric mobility and the positive changes it is bringing to cities all over the world. He is committed to helping to deliver world-class experiences for EV owners world-wide.
Paul has a PhD and a Bachelor of Engineering (hons) and Bachelor of Science from the University of Queensland.
