His first position as a product designer was at Group Four Design, an award-winning New England firm. He later joined inno as Design Manager while he also became a part-time professor of Industrial Design at Georgia Tech’s School of Design and Architecture in Atlanta. In 1998, he joined then start-up firm Product Ventures, where he remained for 15 years as Vice President of Design and Development. His most recent position has brought Javier back to the Los Angeles area to Tesla Motors.

His work has won some of the industry’s most prestigious awards: 3 Red Dot Awards, 7 Good Design Awards, and an IDEA award. In addition, his name appears in more than 130 patents in the U.S. and abroad. Javier’s philosophy on Industrial Design is that if you can’t manufacture what you create, it is not worth designing.

    Acting as the Director of Product Design at Tesla Motors, Javier Verdura belongs to in the inner circle of the elite design team. His goal is “to make the Tesla brand a household name” by designing products that meet the customer’s expectations.​
