Our people

Greg Fairbotham
Founder

Greg is Zoom’s Founder who had the initial vision of creating a company focussed on driving the new era of mobility whilst helping people make sustainable choices. With a background in oil and gas (oh the irony!) and EV's, Greg saw the need to change first hand and so set about making a difference through Zoom.

Jeff Fairbotham
