Chief Business and Technology Officer
Ken is our Renaissance man.
He trained as an engineer, but his first paycheck came from a Dixieland jazz band. He has designed engines; worked with NASA’s Space Shuttle Program and marketed cars. His intellectual appetite is broad, and he is a leading candidate for the executive you would most like to have dinner with if you couldn’t talk about work.
His job here is to figure out what consumers want; what is possible; and what Karma should do. It combines business and technology strategy. Most of us are focused on launching a car. Ken is focused on what we do after we launch the car.
He grew up in Detroit, with a father who spent a life working in the car business. He is Midwest-nice, has travelled the world and works successfully with everyone. He does have an unusual propensity to wear Dockers slacks, but we forgive him most of the time.
