In a move to further expand the expertise available to AeroMobil’s strategy and innovation team, Jonathan Carrier, a leading intranpreneur, strategist and investor in the automotive industry and Director of Corporate Innovation at RocketSpace, is joining the AeroMobil’s team of business advisors. He will support the business strategy and fund-raising activities, helping to ramp up its operations and drive market demand for flying cars.
Jonathan has accumulated vast experience in roles with Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren, Mazda, and Fiat adding unrivalled expertise to AeroMobil’s innovation leadership. Jonathan was attracted by the flying car company’s mission to be at the cutting edge of the emerging market for flying cars and its firm commitment to its production timetable, as well as its continued success in securing key investors.
In his last position at Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), Jonathan was founder and Head of InMotion Ventures, a wholly owned subsidiary of Jaguar Land Rover, to build and invest in mobility and smart transportation ventures driving business model innovation to support the long term transformation of the JLR business. Currently, Jonathan holds a prominent position at RocketSpace, providing speed and direction to the world’s top tech start-ups and corporate innovators to help bring the future to market.
“I am delighted to be joining AeroMobil’s team of strategic advisors as it is leading the most radical redefinition of mobility since Henry Ford in what is a truly exciting time for the automotive and aerospace industries,” said Jonathan Carrier. “Technology is changing the sector beyond recognition and I look forward to sharing my knowledge of cutting edge automotive innovation, as well as new business models in mobility, to define the business and go-to-market strategies for the flying car.”
During his time with InMotion Ventures, Jonathan was responsible for building new ventures and financing investments in future mobility and smart transportation, having built a team of over 30 people to create multiple international ventures and business operations across different technology areas and across the technology stack for the future transport value chain, including shared mobility, connected car, autonomous systems and electrification.
Attracting such senior figures to its advisory team underlines the considerable progress AeroMobil is making in its go-to-market strategy, having achieved the major milestone of delivering the production-ready version of its flying car. It is also helping to strengthen its credibility with the growing number of investors expressing interest in AeroMobil, as it continues to seek investment to support its expansion plans.
