TransportTech company Miralis has appointed Judith Halkerston OBE as chair of its board.

Lancaster-based Miralis, which featured on our TransportTech 50 ranking last year, recently secured investment for its flagship product, electric vehicle chargepoint management platform Fuuse.

Halkerston has built an impressive tech career within organisations including BT, Logica and Steria. For the last eight years she has worked in non-executive board level roles supporting and accelerating growth in technology companies such as Ntegra, Symphonic Software and OnGen. 

Her achievements were formally recognised last year with the presentation of an OBE for her services to the UK’s digital economy.

Halkerston joins Miralis to support CEO Michael Gibson and the company’s next phase of growth as it aims to make the Fuuse platform the enterprise-level chargepoint management system of choice.

“I am delighted to join Miralis as they embark on this exciting next chapter, and the journey poses a fresh challenge for me too,” said Halkerston. “It’s rare to join a thriving startup where all the leads are inbound, so our focus will be ensuring we identify and prioritise the right opportunities at the right time.

“There is clearly a very large appetite for Fuuse, and together with the foundations of a passionate team, and the backing and support of investors and fellow entrepreneurs, there is a real opportunity for Fuuse to become a household name amongst fleets, installers and the public.”

Gibson said: “It is an honour to welcome Judith to the team and work with her to take Fuuse to the success we know can be achieved. Judith comes with an incredible record of achievement and we couldn’t be more delighted and eager to learn from her expertise. 

“This is another big step in our journey.  With our successes to date, and the demand for Fuuse growing rapidly across sectors, the timing is perfect to utilise all the support Judith has to offer, and to help make Fuuse a core player in the UK’s EV revolution.”
