Our Speakers


Andy Millard, Chief Executive at Link Engine Management

Link Engine Management is a global leader in motorsport electronics and performance technology. They specialise in the development, manufacture and marketing of engine control units (ECUs) built to manage complex powertrains for internal combustion engines. Link is headquartered in Christchurch, New Zealand with sales & support offices in the UK, USA and Australia. The Company’s products are designed here in Christchurch and manufactured in New Zealand for export to their network of over 1,500 dealers in 65 countries. Link’s success has seen its revenue grow over 3½ times in the past five years.

Topic: Engineering design & development process transformation

As a start-up and for the first 20 years, Link was a traditional engineering-led company. The Company’s product development, at times, struggled to keep pace with its global competitors and the changing electronics industry. Managing crises dominated the engineering team, which was further compounded by irregular R&D. Following a three year ‘generational’ platform development completed at the end of 2019, Link’s engineering team has transformed how they approach product development and refreshed their enthusiasm for R&D.
