Scott is the Head of TeamSky Performance Hub. He helped to deliver the team’s fourth Tour de France triumph in July 2016 having previously worked at the Rugby Football Union and prior to that as head of Innovation at UKSport.

Halto started when Lerryn went shopping for a holiday bikini and found the golden unicorn of bikinis; beautiful fabric, gorgeous styling, in the sale AND in her size. The only thing that made her buxom heart sink was that it was a halter neck, and she has 32H boobs. That was not a happy combination.

Darren trained as an actor before throwing his huge creativity into Garden and Landscape Design. He has won 2x Chelsea Gold Medal Awards.

Patrick set up the hugely successful Artwork Knitwear brand with his wife Jane followed by a stint as head of the Design Department, Falmouth University. Recently he’s been appointed  Professor of Apparel and Product Design, DeTao Masters Academy Shanghai.

Paul’s Cornish heritage dates back to the 1500’s but Fish for Thought dates from more recent times. Set up in 2007 Paul spotted an opportunity to disrupt the fish market and deliver fresh fish directly to the customer from the boats.

Mike France set up Christopher Ward watches in 2004 after selling Early Learning Centre - as an online only challenger brand - the highest quality products and design (with the same mechanics as the luxury brands) but with a reasonable price point.  Recently they have introduced their own movement (a very big deal in watches) and moved slightly upmarket.

Jeremy Sneller is a leader with strong roots in analytics, mobile and communication technology.
