City Science is delighted to announce that Gavin Jackman has joined the team in the role of Growth Director.

Gavin, who took up the role in April, joins City Science after an illustrious career to-date helping build businesses in the transport technology space.

His remit at City Science is to help more organisations successfully deliver decarbonisation by helping the team develop, promote and commercialise the right products. In addition, he will expand outreach to new clients looking for insights into their decarbonisation decision making.

Before taking this role at City Science, Gavin has worked at a senior level in a number of organisations including:

  • Four and a half years as Managing Director at Aimsun, where he helped develop a customer base of thousands of international users modelling smart mobility networks.
  • Two years as Chief Technology Officer at Telent where he was responsible for technical direction within the roads traffic business and providing strategic advice guidance and delivery across Telent’s road technology contracts and customer base.
  • Over six years as Head of Traffic Software and Networks at TRL where he helped develop software to reduce congestion, provide more reliable journey times and ultimately improve air quality in cities and urban environments.

In addition, Gavin has been a board member and Chair of the Intelligent Mobility Management and Operations programme Committee at the Association of European Transport.

Speaking about his new role, Gavin commented:

“I feel extremely privileged to have the opportunity to be part of the team at City Science. I have known Laurence and admired the City Science mission to use data in more effective ways to optimise the development, embedding and delivery of evidence-led carbon reduction plans.

“My job is to help us scale solutions to far more clients in highly impactful and cost-effective ways to leverage the impact we can have on carbon reduction. I’ve already made a start in the past couple of months and am loving every moment.”

City Science CEO and founder Laurence Oakes-Ash added:

“We are excited to have someone with Gavin’s industry knowledge and proven track record on board. This is a big step for City Science and demonstrates our commitment to driving the business forward so we can help more organisations on their decarbonisation journeys.

“Gavin has a wealth of experience in the transport and technology space and is hugely well known and respected across the industry. We are certain his knowledge, insights and connections will help us develop and promote the most relevant products and services and solidify the bridge between our technical development and market requirements.”
