Ross’s career, spanning three decades and three continents, commenced in Australia in Mechanical Engineering in power generation and energy management, before moving to the UK to focus on Oil & Gas equipment design and manufacture.
After 4 years as a Volunteer Engineer in Central America, Ross completed his MSc and PhD Engineering studies at London’s Imperial College in novel power generations and hybrid vehicle systems. He was part of the founding team, and later Director of Distributed Generation, that spun the developed technology out of the University.
Following that, Ross became either the Director, CEO or Chairman of a number of early-stage companies in the UK and Australia. He gained vast experience in the foundation, management and growth of emerging companies, taking innovative high-technology concepts in energy, petrochemical and Oil & Gas sectors through development and commercialisation to IPO/Trade Sale.
