Brad Buss: Independent Director at QuantumScape (NYSE: QS), Marvell Technology (NASDAQ: MRVL), AECOM (NYSE: ACM), and Advance Auto Parts (NYSE: AAP); former Independent Director of Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA); former CFO of SolarCity and Cypress Semiconductor. In November 2020, QuantumScape was taken public via a merger with a SPAC, further adding to the senior management team’s SPAC credentials. We believe that having a member of our SAC that has sold a business to a SPAC, as well as a director of a public company that was taken public via a SPAC, is unique and will make us an attractive business combination partner to target businesses.
