Local EV Charging in a Global Context

Paul Sernia is Chief Product Officer and co-founder, Tritium.

Driving solar cars at speeds topping 62 miles per hour inspired Tritium co-founder Paul Sernia to create lightweight, energy-efficient and technologically advanced vehicle chargers.
He now pursues that vision as Tritium’s Chief Product Officer.

Paul got his start in the driver’s seat of electric vehicle product design at the University of Queensland, where he met Tritium co-founders David Finn and James Kennedy and joined the Sunshark solar car racing team, which competed in the prestigious World Solar Challenge. Paul was Tritium’s commercial director at the company’s founding in 2001, overseeing operational, legal and contractual affairs.

Outside of Tritium, he worked as a manager of innovation and commercial development at UniQuest, finding commercial pathways for innovative technology developed by Australian universities. He joined UniQuest in 2006 as a technology commercialisation associate, developing business ideas for early stage technologies with biotech, nanotech, environmental and social science applications while pursuing commercial opportunities for Tritium by night. Sernia also briefly worked as a healthcare sector data analyst for The Allen Consulting Group, as a business analyst for Volvo Trucks, and as a sales and marketing assistant for REL Consultancy Group in London.

He focused his interest solely on Tritium in 2012 when the company raised its first investment, from the Varley Group.

Paul holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering as well as a Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Systems and a Bachelor of Science from the University of Queensland.
