As CEO of Ilika, Graeme’s work has revolved around the commercialisation of energy storage technologies and in particular, solid-state batteries. Ilika is a pioneer in solid-state devices. It has developed miniature solid-state batteries for powering wireless sensor devices and has recently been awarded significant funding from the Faraday Battery Challenge to scale up its technology for deployment as motive power batteries for electric vehicles. Graeme has been with the company since it was founded and has steered it through three rounds of venture funding before floating it on AIM. Prior to joining Ilika, Graeme was Chief Operating Officer of a high-technology company in the Netherlands and before that worked in a variety of technical and commercial roles for Shell. Graeme holds degrees in Natural Sciences and Chemical Engineering from Cambridge and an MBA from INSEAD business school in France.
