Lucid's leadership team is further enhanced with the appointments of Margaret Burgraff, VP of Software Validation; Sanjay Chandra, VP of Information Technology; Jeff Curry, VP of Marketing and Communications, driving the company toward deliveries of Lucid Air
 
Dubai, UAE: May 6, 2021:   Lucid Motors, which seeks to set new standards for sustainable mobility with its advanced luxury EVs, today announced that Sherry House has joined the company as Chief Financial Officer.
 
Ms. House joins Lucid from Waymo, bringing more than two decades of experience, with a compelling background of financial and technical expertise that includes: 
 
• Leadership of Waymo's global corporate development, investments, acquisitions and external fundraising. 
• A deep understanding of financial operations for both Fortune 500 and emerging companies and how to improve upon them, based on her experience at Waymo and at private equity firms. 
• Over ten years with automotive OEM, Tier 1 supplier and mobility companies, as well as several years in the capital markets industry as a technology investor, investment banker and financial operating executive. 
 
“We are delighted to have Sherry join us. Her rare combination of financial and technical experience bolsters our core leadership team in a pivotal year for Lucid as we prepare to transition to a publicly traded company and launch the Lucid Air,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO, Lucid Motors. “We stand on the cusp of delivering the world's most advanced electric vehicles, and now with the arrival of Sherry, augmented by the ongoing, invaluable contribution of our Vice President of Finance, Mike Smuts, we continue to build out what I believe to be the EV industry's strongest leadership team.”
 
In addition to the new CFO, Lucid has announced three more additions to the company's leadership team. Margaret Burgraff joins as Vice President of Software Validation, Sanjay Chandra as Vice President of Information Technology, and Jeff Curry as Vice President of Marketing and Communications. These leaders bring decades of expertise in the automotive and technology industries, including with global companies such Apple, Intel, Jaguar and Ferrari. With these new additions in place, Lucid's executive leadership team will advance the company's vision to redefine luxury, performance and efficiency in the electric vehicle market. In parallel, they will guide the company as it prepares for two major milestones planned in 2021: listing as a public company and starting customer deliveries of the groundbreaking Lucid Air.  
 
Mrs. Burgraff joins Lucid with over 25 years of quality and software development management at world-renowned organizations including Apple and Intel. Most recently, she served as Vice President of Global Developer Relations at Intel, where she was responsible for co-engineering and enabling global independent software vendors to work best with Intel's product portfolio.

In that role, he was responsible for multiple IT functions including cloud operations, infrastructure and eCommerce that contributed to explosive business growth and customer expansion. His extensive experience includes management of a wide range of IT operations and infrastructure that provided global service availability and ensured reliability of complex systems.
 
With over two decades of marketing experience, Mr. Curry has worked across a range of industries with a résumé that includes iconic brands and high-tech startups.
