Mike Juran is Chief Executive of Altia, a company with an enormous presence in the automotive space, but also one that most drivers may never have heard of.

There may be no Altia branding in the car, but the company has played a key role in shaping the user experience (UX) that drivers and passengers have come to enjoy. Increasingly, the company is working on ways to optimise the UX for upcoming EVs, pushing energy efficiency to the fore.
