American by nationality and Danish by birth, Fisker’s many past and present global entrepreneurial endeavors are headlined by his current role as the Chairman and CEO of Fisker Inc. – founded in 2016 as his second automotive company. Fisker Inc. is the world’s first digital car company, with the “vision” of a clean future for all, and a mission of “Making the World’s most sustainable vehicles”. Fisker designed the 2022 Fisker Ocean all electric SUV, which is set to disrupt the automotive market through its unique design, extreme sustainability, technical features and affordability.

Celebrated as a true iconic figure in the automotive industry, Henrik Fisker has been behind some of the most emotionally appealing vehicles ever created. The Fisker Karma was the world’s first luxury plug-in hybrid, launched in 2011.

Henrik led the development of the iconic BMW Z8 sports car – with James Bond at the wheel in the 1999 blockbuster film, The World Is Not Enough. As President and Chief Executive Officer of BMW Designworks USA, his creation of the Z8 Roadster took the globe by storm, while his stints at Aston Martin as board member and design director resulted in the turnaround of Aston Martin through the famed DB9/V8 Vantage, which to this day is the most sold Aston Martin ever.
