“Since our founding, our advisors have been active, crucial contributors toward building the supersonic future, and I’m honored to welcome Phil Condit and Tim Brown to this group,” said Blake Scholl, Boom’s founder and CEO. “Both bring invaluable perspectives — Phil as a veteran leader in commercial aviation, and Tim as a widely respected innovator in human-centered design.”
Tim Brown is an award-winning industrial designer and executive chair of IDEO, the global design firm. Brown has exhibited work at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Design Museum in London, and the Axis Gallery in Tokyo, and he is a frequent speaker at the World Economic Forum and TED.
“The potential of faster flight is an exciting next step in civil aviation. I was drawn to Boom by the significant progress the team has already made in developing a sustainable supersonic airliner,” said Condit. “Boom’s team has the technical depth and know-how to deliver on its vision, and I’m excited to have another opportunity to help make aviation history.”
