Chief Financial Officer - Bikmo

Bikmo are an emerging player in the bicycle insurance market. Founded in July 2014 by cycling enthusiast David George, the business has rapidly created a name for itself as a leading provider of cycling insurance products that enable it’s customer’s to simply ‘ride more’. In 2016 the business won the coveted ‘Best Cycling Insurer’ award at the Insurance Choice Awards and recently moved to new premises in Abbey Square in the heart of Chester City Centre and have also opened a site in Zurich, Austria.

Looking to recruit a new Director of Finance to the business, Sherrington recently helped them with the search. Utilising our extensive network of CFO's within the North West region, we were able to swiftly help Bikmo to identify a highly accomplished candidate with an ideally-suited background of working with high-growth tech start-ups and an impressive pedigree of building financial structures and controls to help entrepreneurial SMEs like Bikmo scale-up and grow. 

Crucially the other key criteria in this important appointment for Bikmo would be the candidate's personal and business values. Bikmo were at the time going through the coveted 'B-Corp' accreditation, an arduous process that holds businesses accountable for their social responsibility, aligning boardroom focus on People, Profit and Planet in equal measure. It was imperative that the candidates values were aligned to those of Bikmo's if they were to uphold their B-Corp commitments in the future.

Louise Towers, also a Non-Executive Director at Storyhouse, joined the business as Chief Financial Officer in July of this year. The team at Sherrington wishes Louise well in her new role and her journey with Bikmo!

I was very happy with the support provided by Sherrington Associates through this search.
