Luke Barker



Luke’s role includes ensuring Helix maintains its competitive advantage while building the expertise required to do so. He is also involved in the effort to productionise our high-performance electric drive systems and make them accessible to a wider customer base.

Luke was previously Development Manager at Cosworth Technology, eventually taking project delivery responsibility for half of the company’s business. He founded IP with the other directors in 1999 after the sale of Cosworth Technology.

Helix has a track record of innovating for competitive advantage while achieving a better fit to client needs – working out how to do this falls under Luke’s remit. He was previously instrumental in developing the technology package that enabled IP’s rapid transition into electric drives. More recently, Luke was the architect of the techno-commercial strategy making Helix’s high-performance electric drives accessible to more clients at greater scale.
