Infinium Logistics, which is supporting the energy transition of commercial transport, has concluded a strategic review and appointed Andy Martin as its Chairman, as the firm positions itself for its next stage of expansion.

Infinium has successfully secured an additional £5m in growth capital, enabling it to invest for the future, expanding its platform and customer product proposition, as it looks to play a pivotal role in the new generation of clean energy transport infrastructure.

The firm has also appointed Andy Martin to the role of non-executive chairman, describing him as a "titan in the commercial real estate sector" with over 45 years’ experience. 

Martin spent over 30 years at Strutt and Parker and, following its merger, held the role of UK CEO of BNP Paribas, where he was responsible for its UK operations, managing the integration of the two companies, creating a new business plan and setting up a new board for succession. 

Martin said he looked forward to working with the Infinium team, adding: “I have enjoyed playing a leading role in the creation of new real estate markets, being early in business parks, logistics parks and, more recently, the life sciences sector. 

"Infinium has positioned itself well to lead the energy transition in real estate. 

"I believe this is an exciting new prospect that offers a terrific match for my skills and experience – creating an essential asset class to meet the challenge of reducing carbon emissions and cleaning up the air in our cities."

James Lee, Founder of Infinium Logistics, added: “I welcome Andy’s appointment to Chair of Infinium. 

"The business has grown and taken shape considerably since its foundations in 2020, and Andy brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge to support the Board and the business in its most significant growth stage over the coming months and years.  

"I look forward to working alongside Andy moving forward.”

Following a strategic review, Infinium has refined its key focus areas to concentrate on building its European asset management capabilities and business solutions that support the energy transition of commercial transport. 

Infinium is committed to pioneering large-scale Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure powered by renewable energy. 

In 2022 it launched its FleetHubs property investment platform, which combines commercial real estate, technology and low carbon energy infrastructure to create the next generation of parking and charging assets that drive the lowest price and carbon electricity solution for global fleets. 

The platform has already secured its first five strategic assets in the UK, with an active pipeline of further assets across Europe. 

Phil Bayliss, CEO of Infinium Logistics, said: “Infinium is dedicated to supporting the greener and smarter future of fleet management, and the wider clean energy transition of global commercial transport. 

"It does this through the creation of next generation real estate products and energy systems that align with our customers’ vision for a sustainable and efficient transportation ecosystem. 

"Having restructured our business to set ourselves up for success, we look forward to helping our customers to deliver a bright and sustainable future – innovating and shaping the future of transportation, while they save money and win new revenue.”
