Chris Blackburn

Chris has always been interested in anything with buttons, switches and flashing lights. Watching Robot Wars and Scrapheap Challenge he knew he was going to be an engineer. Designing cutting edge software, he obtained an MEng in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from University College London. EE grads generally move on to become soulless bankers but since this was 2009 and the worlds market had recently crashed, Chris decided to build a career making things not crash and entered the railway industry. He spent 8 years mastering his craft, improving the London Underground, designing remote condition monitoring systems and testing and commissioning vehicles. Then in 2017 Ben and Chris founded Infinitive Group to drive change and innovation for the future of the rail industry. As the Chief Technical Officer and head of the Research and Development department, Chris develops our technical strategy and leads the team that creates revolutionary electronic products to create modern transport solutions.
