MANCHESTER, England & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wejo Group Limited (NASDAQ: WEJO) (“Wejo” or the “Company”), a global leader in Smart Mobility for Good™ and cloud and software analytics for connected, electric and autonomous vehicle data, announced that Diarmid Ogilvy has resigned for personal reasons from the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”), effective February 28, 2023.
“Diarmid has been highly influential over the years at Wejo, particularly through his investment experience in both the public and private equity markets,” said Richard Barlow, CEO and co-founder of Wejo. “The early days of founding any tech business in the world are challenging. Diarmid’s entrepreneurial spirit and fervor for investing in fast-growing companies across a variety of sectors have helped differentiate the Company and guide its strategic direction. On behalf of the Board and the entire Wejo team, we are immensely grateful to Diarmid for his leadership and the tremendous value he has added over the years. We will work diligently to continue positioning the Company he helped grow for long-term success.”
Diarmid Ogilvy stated, “Richard and I founded Wejo nearly ten years ago when I became a seed investor. I could not be prouder of the Company it is today and the journey we have traveled. Our strategic vision was to build a global leader in the Smart Mobility space and Wejo is now extremely well-positioned, partnering with some of the largest and most advanced businesses in the world, including General Motors, Microsoft, Palantir, and Sompo. I am delighted to have worked alongside such a driven leadership team and Board to execute upon that vision. As I step away and pursue other opportunities, dividing my time between business and charity interests, I remain a significant shareholder and will continue to be a huge cheerleader for Wejo, its ambitions, and the contribution it is making to advance the future of Smart Mobility.”
