DeepMap announced that the company has expanded its leadership team with the appointment of Amer Akhtar as Chief Revenue Officer. Akhtar is an industry veteran with deep international business and automotive experience.
Akhtar joins DeepMap from NIO, a leader in China’s premium electric vehicle market. At NIO, Akhtar served as COO and Head of XPT US, the advanced technology components and solutions division. Previously, Akhtar was President of ADP China as well as President of Yahoo Small Business.
James Wu, CEO and Co-Founder, DeepMap, said: “Amer brings to DeepMap a unique combination of startup and large company management experience. His extensive background in working with customers and partners in Europe and Asia, as well as his hands-on experience with the new mobility ecosystem, will be invaluable as we continue to grow internationally. We are incredibly excited to welcome Amer on board.”
“DeepMap’s technology is critical for safe autonomous driving,” said Akhtar. “All self-driving vehicles, from cars and trucks to buses, shuttles, and delivery robots, will require precise mapping and localisation capabilities. I am thrilled to join the DeepMap team as the company begins its next stage of growth and look forward to working with DeepMap’s customers and partners around the world to make autonomy a reality.”
