Giles Lowe is co-founder and CEO of Spanner, a firm committed to creating products that impact the world and the way we live.
As a child in England, Giles was fascinated with how things worked and enjoyed taking apart radios and other appliances. Fast forward more than two decades later, and Giles is still deconstructing and making things work better. He has tenaciously led many successful high profile launches for world-renowned companies including Google and Microsoft and hundreds of emerging markets.
Giles has a wealth of international experience in a diverse array of product markets including consumer electronics products for home, wellness, entertainment, agriculture, food and beverage, sports, and motorsports.
When not creating the next disruptive product, he can be found surfing along the California coast or making sandcastles with his triplets. Giles holds a BSC with honors in product design and manufacturing from Bournemouth University.
Founded in 2014 by product development veterans Giles Lowe and Arne Lang-Ree, the duo set out to create a superior approach for engaging with innovators, entrepreneurs and designers. They achieved this through a highly collaborative process, in essence teaming up with their clients through all aspects of product evolution from idea to launch.
Based in the heart of Silicon Valley Spanner has engaged with hundreds of companies including Google and Amazon as well as smaller disruptors Brava, Sana and Arable.
Spanner creates products that impact the world and the way we live. The company’s goal is to merge innovation, sustainability and responsibility to bring meaningful product experiences to life.
“Spanner visualizes the world to be a better place, then perfects how that world looks. We focus beyond the obvious and leave no stone unturned, taking into consideration the social, cultural and technological advances that continue to shape our society. The end result is that we not only create a better product experience, but ultimately aim to use it to improve the world we live in.” – Giles Lowe, Spanner founder & CEO.
