Evolito Limited, the pioneer of world-leading axial-flux electric motors, power electronics, and battery solutions for aerospace applications, announces the appointment of Marc Holme as CTO, as it prepares for future growth.

Marc Holme joins as CTO to lead the technology development and the future roadmap of the axial-flux e-motor and propulsion product family. He has a 24-year tenure in aviation, most recently at Collins Aerospace where he was Senior Director of Engineering. Holme’s deep technical background has seen him lead multiple aircraft system electrification programs from Airbus A380 to Boeing 787, and many technology acquisition programs.

Commenting on his appointment, Marc Holme, CTO, Evolito said: “I’m excited to join Evolito to continue the progression towards more sustainable aviation through electrification. The advanced electric motor technology that originated for the automotive market is being adapted and improved by Evolito to enable aerospace applications where weight, efficiency and safety are critical. Combined with its leading motor control electronics and battery technologies, Evolito is well positioned to reach scalable and sustainable electric aviation.”

The new C-suite hire follows a phenomenal year for the company, having received Design Organisation Approval (DOA) from the UK Civil Aviation Authority for electric propulsion system products in December 2023. Evolito is already working with a number of OEM partners, developing motors and propulsion systems for a variety of eVTOL, Urban Air Mobility and fixed-wing applications, and expects a series of customer test flights later this year.

Dr. Chris Harris, Evolito CEO and co-founder said: “The whole company is delighted to welcome Marc to the growing Evolito family. I’m extremely proud of what we have created here at Evolito, and our success is a reflection of our hugely talented and dedicated team, driven by a common passion for sustainable mobility. The electrification of flight is one of the most exciting market opportunities of our time, and Evolito’s innovative new technology and ability to scale means we are well positioned to meet this fast-emerging demand.”
