Riccardo Pagliarella – Automotive Engineering Advisor

Ric is the company’s Automotive Engineering Advisor, bringing us a wealth of experience from his days delivering R&D for everyone from Toyota to Tesla to Hydro Tasmania. With an aerodynamics PhD and experience in some of the world’s most sophisticated digital environments, Ric’s advice has helped us in everything from the design of our cooling system, to our manufacturing, finance and business strategy planning.


Having worked for Renault’s Formula 1 team in the UK and Tesla’s R&D teams in Palo Alta, Dennis regularly defers to Ric for advice from the automotive frontline. Ric is currently a Specialist Director at Deloitte Digital, where he helps bring to market powerful Digital Twins simulations of large-scale transport and energy networks. If it goes fast or runs renewably, it’s in Ric’s domain – so the Savic Alpha totally qualifies!
