Jane joined Tritium in 2019 as Chief Operating Officer and Deputy CEO. She was appointed as Tritium’s CEO in March of 2020.

She has extensive experience in operations, projects, and commercial management across multiple industries including aerospace, fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), gaming, and entertainment. Her experience includes seven years at Boeing in roles as a company director and Chief Operating Officer of the global Phantom Works division which was responsible for the rapid prototyping and development of advanced technologies.

Jane has chaired the South Queensland Defence Advisory Board.

Along with Michael Hipwood and David Toomey, Jane is a member of the Tritium Executive Committee.

Jane has a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Laws (Hons) from the University of Queensland and is a qualified barrister.

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 Vision 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.

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 place 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.

David has more than 25 years of experience in the financial services industry in the USA, Europe and Asia, working in direct investment roles on both the equity and debt side of transactions that have included corporations and infrastructure projects across a range of regions and industries.

David has been an adviser to the Tritium board and an alternate director since 2013. He joined the company full-time in 2016 as Chief of Staff and Corporate Development and became Chief Revenue Officer in 2019. He has global responsibility for managing Tritium’s sale enablement and marketing activities, and he has been responsible for all capital raising for the company.

Along with Jane Hunter and Michael Hipwood, David is a member of the Tritium Executive Committee.

David is a Chartered Financial Analyst and a Chartered Accountant. He has a Bachelor of Business from Queensland University of Technology and a Graduate Diploma of Applied Finance and Investment from the Securities Institute.
