Leicestershire-based sustainability specialist, Clean Air Power, has appointed Ian Borley DL as an advisor.
Ian is an award-winning business consultant who specialises in change management. He was previously at KPMG in the East Midlands for over 20 years, working his way up to senior partner and leading their Midlands Enterprise practice. Since retiring from KPMG in 2020, Ian has been running his own consultancy practice and he is also a non-executive director of the National Space Centre.
Clean Air Power is helping deliver the transition from fossil fuels to decarbonised transport with net zero emissions. Founded in 1991, the company provides technology and systems that improve performance and reduce the impact of public and private transport on the environment. Its clients include Volvo, DHL and Mercedes.
Ian said: “It is clear that we need to find alternative sources of power that do less damage to the environment, but which are still practical and cost-effective to the end user. To my mind, hydrogen is a great alternative to fossil fuels – particularly in industrial applications where electricity is just not a viable option. So, I’m delighted to be joining the team at Clean Air Power, who are doing a tremendous job of bringing to market proven technologies that make hydrogen engines work.”
Dan Skelton, CEO of Clean Air Power, said: “We’re delighted Ian is joining us, as his wealth of knowledge and expertise will be vital in supporting this period of our expansion.
“Net Zero Carbon is high on the agenda both locally and further afield, so now is the ideal time to further raise our profile and make clear the benefits of hydrogen power in helping remove fossil fuels from sectors such as automotive, rail, marine and construction. This includes supplying our hydrogen technology to overcome some of the major barriers currently blocking quick implementation of these zero emission fuels.
“We’re looking forward to working with Ian to help accelerate decarbonisation and the move to zero emission power. The need to tackle the impact of fossil fuels has never been more important than it is now.”
Ian was a member of the CBI’s East Midlands Regional Council, was Chair of Leicestershire Business Voice, and has served on the boards of the National Forest Charitable Trust and the Richard III Visitor Centre.
He has been awarded an Honorary Doctorate by De Montfort University and was formerly Leicestershire’s ‘Non-Executive Director of the Year’. He was commissioned as Deputy Lieutenant of Leicestershire earlier this year.
