Chief Executive Officer
Daniel Ruiz joined Meridian Mobility UK Ltd as CEO in January 2018, leading the UK’s £100 million connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) programme.
Meridian is the UK’s hub for testing and development of CAV, established in September 2017 with funding from industry and Government to accelerate the uptake of CAV technologies and to exploit their social and economic potential.
Meridian is currently channelling £100m of matched funding into infrastructure and associated projects which will form the core of Testbed UK: an integrated, comprehensive testing ecosystem for CAV and their environments. Meridian is responsible for scoping and overseeing the ecosystem.
Ruiz joined Meridian from Dynniq UK Ltd, where he was Managing Director. There, he led a 500-strong team tackling traffic challenges on the road networks in the UK and Ireland by developing, installing and maintaining a number of technology-based solutions.
