Luke Chittock
Managing director

Prior to joining LIFE, Luke’s lengthy career in the geospatial technology industry had led him to the role of Head of Mapping at a globally recognised smart mobility start-up. Among other tasks, Luke was responsible for the development of data capture methodologies for data to support last metre navigation for autonomous vehicles.

Supplementing his core skills Luke has experience of mobile naked web applications built upon open source technologies, cross platform mobile, enterprise systems, machine learning and product development.

Outside of the geospatial industry, Luke has developed a keen interest in global financial markets, blockchain, open data, geopolitics and kayaking – so he was naturally delighted to have the opportunity to join (and lead) the LIFE team, particularly at a time when awareness of blockchain and cryptocurrencies is burgeoning in the lives of everyday people.
