In his new role as Chief People Officer, Mr Hutchison’s responsibilities will include the delivery of Tritium’s human resources services, setting the Company’s HR strategy across reward, talent, leadership and culture, and ensuring Tritium has the right people and skills in place.

“I look forward to building a sustainable and scalable organisational foundation for growth and success in partnership with Tritium’s leadership and staff.”
