Matt Perkins
CEO, Oxford University Innovation

Dr Matt Perkins joined Oxford University Innovation (OUI), the research commercialisation arm of Oxford University, in October 2016 during a time of both great change and growth for the company. Over 2016, OUI saw its spinout company rate double, while the wider innovation ecosystem around Oxford continues to evolve rapidly. As OUI’s Chief Executive Officer, it is Dr Perkins’ responsibility to guide OUI through these changing times to have an even greater impact, and to pioneer ways in which OUI can continue to enhance its offer to the University and the surrounding ecosystem.

Prior to taking on the CEO role at OUI, he was President of Space Imaging at e2v for 18 months where he assembled a new management team to help transform the division. Space was also a focus for the previous eight years, spent as Group CEO at Surrey Satellite Technology ltd, the world’s leading small satellite mission provider. Matt held a variety of technical and management roles for Filtronic Comtek (part of Filtronic plc) from 1993 to 2007, including setting up manufacturing in China, bolstering the growth of a business unit and leading the global engineering and project management teams.

Matt is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and has a BSc and PhD in electronic and electrical engineering from the University of Leeds, where he is now a visiting professor.
