Oxbotica, the global leader in configurable autonomous vehicle software, has announced the appointment of Graham Budd to its board of directors. This comes at a time of significant and exponential growth for Oxbotica.
Mr Budd joins the company as a non-executive board member, with an impressive track record, having played a key role in Arm’s growth from start-up to global leader, including leading Arm’s processor business through a period of rapid expansion with the development of next-generation processor technology for the smartphone and mobile computing era.
A champion for growth and transformation, he has over 30 years of experience in the technology industry. He joined Arm in 1992 as a design engineer, leading the development of several of Arm’s pioneering system-on-chip and single-chip computer designs. He subsequently held leadership roles in engineering, marketing, and as a GM, before becoming COO in 2008, then President and COO in 2018.
Motivated by a passion to support the flourishing UK tech sector, Mr Budd joins the board with immediate effect and will advise the business on hyper-scaling, as Oxbotica accelerates the commercialisation and deployment of its products.
He said: “Oxbotica’s self-driving technology platform will transform the way people and goods move. With its proven technology and an ecosystem of world-leading partners in place, the company is uniquely positioned for growth. I am delighted to be joining the Oxbotica Board of Directors at this exciting time and look forward to working with the team to bring the benefits of Universal Autonomy to everyone, everywhere.”
