Tekcapital PLC’s (LON:TEK) wholly-owned portfolio company, Guident Ltd, has appointed the former head of General Motors Co's Cadillac division as a director.

He has also previously served as president at Infiniti Motor Company Ltd, at Audi of America Inc and at Audi Japan.

He’ll bring his experience as a manager in the automotive industry to Guident, which is developing a patented technology that has the potential to enable software development for the control of autonomous vehicles and drones via apps and the use of artificial intelligence.

"Autonomous vehicles are poised to disrupt and transform the automotive industry,” said De Nysschen.

“I believe they have the potential to democratise driving, improve safety, create a new asset class and increase the fun and utility of vehicle ownership. New players will emerge and some will evolve into industry leaders. I'm looking forward to contributing to the growth and success of Guident.”
