Company: Virgin Hyperloop One
Earlier this year, Rob Lloyd committed the Hyperloop One to Dubai after partnering with DP World in a plan to build the ultra high-speed 1,200 kph system for cargo delivery. DP World is the largest investor in Virgin Hyperloop One, holding two board seats and having participated in its latest $50m funding round. DP World Cargospeed will design a hyperloop to deliver freight.
Lloyd joined Hyperloop One as CEO and member of the board in 2015. He has previously led numerous innovation programmes within Cisco, including the company’s Intercloud strategy, its data centre and server strategy and the development of its architectural sales and go-to market programmes. With 18 years of global leadership experience at Cisco, Lloyd has managed the majority of its worldwide business.
