Jack leads product development of Moata, a new tech platform created by the Smart Infrastructure startup team at Mott Macdonald Digital Ventures. Tasked with developing the product and scaling it from it's existing application in the New Zealand utilities market, Jack works with clients to grow Moata as a real-time insight tool for asset owners.
An experienced business leader, Jack co-founded SenSat, an AI tech startup awarded 'Startup of the Year' (NCE Techfest) that transformed civil infrastructure projects through recreating the physical environment into specialised digital twins, converting manual and physical tasks to digital and automated. Passionate about working collaboratively with industry partners to leverage skills to identify new opportunities, Jack has a track-record for high-profile partnerships including Oracle and PWC.
Prior to SenSat, Jack joined IBM Hursley Labs straight from school, aged 18, and was transferred to Defence and Intelligence contracts with the UK Government Security Agencies and MoD, to explore uses of data for purposes of improving national security on the UK boarders. After 4 years, Jack left Defence and Intelligence to lead the solutioning and deployment of a machine learning threat detection system on the NHS Payroll (1.2m people, 4th largest in the world).
