Garrett will join the Ceres team from Ricardo, where he held various positions. During his time with global engineering, environmental and strategic consultancy, Garrett led both the US and European automotive divisions.

“He brings a wealth of engineering, project management, strategy and manufacturing experience to the team and I look forward to working with him to maximise the potential for Cere’s technologies in the global clean energy transition.”
Over his 35-year career, Garrett has gained significant understanding of high-tech engineering, business and operational innovation, strategy and M&A that will bring tremendous value to Ceres in the next phase of its growth.
“I am delighted to be joining a clean energy company this is fast-setting the industry standard in solid oxide technology at such an exciting time in its development,” said Garrett.
Garrett succeeds the company’s current Chief Operating Officer James Falla, who will leave Ceres in August 2020 to pursue other opportunities.
