Phil is currently Chairman of publicly listed IQE PLC and Chairman and Non-Executive Director at the Digital Skills Partnership. His previous experience, notably as former Chair of InnovateUK and The Tech Partnership, positions Smith as the ideal fit to lead AppyWay’s board and help accelerate the company’s sustainable mobility vision within the analogue kerbside and parking management industry.
Dan Hubert, Founder & CEO of AppyWay, “Phil has an impressive and illustrious background and I’m thrilled to add his expertise and experience to our board. His enthusiasm for our vision combined with his impressive understanding of the market have already proved highly valuable to the company in several ways. I’m looking forward to working more closely with Phil as we look to supercharge our next phase of growth.”
Phil has received many accolades including Orange Business Leader of the Year, member of the Wired 100 and listed in the 50 Kindest Leaders in 2018. Phil was awarded a CBE in the 2019 Queen’s Birthday Honours List for his services to technology, business, and skills.
Phil Smith added; “I am delighted to be joining Dan and the AppyWay team. The opportunity to revolutionise the way we understand, use and optimise our transport infrastructure around the world is exciting. AppyWay have already demonstrated their clear understanding of the key issues, challenges and opportunities with leading technologies and deep client engagement. I am looking forward to helping a talented and ambitious team do great things and to make a real difference to the world.”
Phil Smith’s appointment follows recent AppyWay board additions; Amazon veteran Ron Kornfeld, and John Fogelin, AppyWay’s resident CTO and Chief Security Officer.
