As one of the first IT Gurus to be part of the DotCom boom with CommerceOne and LinkedIn’s Business Leader of the Year 2010, David is bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to Taxicode, the UK’s number one nationwide taxi-booking service. Taxicode operates in over 400 towns covering approximately 95% of the UK with over 400 taxi and private hire companies, and is in a crucial position in the market, showing impressive growth as a small startup competing successfully with larger international businesses on a UK-wide basis. The company is predicting David will help open new doors and push progress even further in 2015.
Taxicode Co-founder and Director Jonathan Kettle said:
"When I first met David I knew instantly that I wanted him to be part of the business going forward. He's very straight talking and down to earth, he understands business better than anybody else I've met and we're thrilled to have him as part of our team going forward."
David said of his appointment as Board Advisor at Taxicode:
“Who would have thought that getting a taxi could be one of the hot topics right now? I have particularly taken an interest Taxicode because of not only how the business has grown to a good size with over £10m bookings, it how it has done this organically, which is a rare thing these days. Now is the right time to scale the business while now also seeking outside investment and support to help accelerate that scale and window of opportunity."
David joins Taxicode at the end of a very exciting year; 2014 saw phenomenal growth for the company, including surpassing competitors by generating £10m worth of bookings, and the business has high aspirations for 2015, with several new products in the pipeline.
"The taxi tech sector is really hotting, up with companies like Uber and Lyft dominating the headlines, but you’ll definitely be seeing a lot more of Taxicode this year,”
said Jonathan Kettle, adding:
“It's an exciting time for the industry and you can be sure we will be playing a big part in its evolution."Download as PDF
