The Strategy Committee is led by ITS (UK) Vice Chair Karla Jakeman of Innovate UK who commented, “The Society is made up of public sector, consultancies and businesses, and it’s excellent news that three wise business heads in David, Neil and Geoff are joining the committee to work with representatives from the Secretariat and our Council Directors. With technology key to the delivery of efficient, sustainable transport in the future, the Strategy Committee is a vital part of ITS (UK)’s ongoing commitment to support the industry.”

In taking a place on the Strategy Committee, I’m keen to share my experience and be involved in further developing our industry.”
