CFO Designate Appointment


The Company is pleased to announce that David Wolffe has been appointed as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Designate (initially a non-board position) effective 25th July 2022. David Surtees, the current CFO, is retiring at the end of March 2023 as previously disclosed at the time of Pod Point's IPO.  The two will work alongside one another to effect a smooth transition of responsibilities before David Wolffe takes over as CFO and joins the Pod Point Board in early 2023. 

David Wolffe has 25 years' board level experience in both public and private businesses, including as CFO at HMV PLC, as Finance Director at ITV PLC, and most recently as Chief Financial Officer of Ted Baker PLC from 2020. His experience spans a number of high growth listed, PE-backed and start-up technology companies   in CFO, COO and Managing Director roles. These include AOL, GoCardless and GeniusSports. David holds an MEng degree from Cambridge University, an MBA from INSEAD France, and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.

Gareth Davis, Chairman of Pod Point, commented: "I am delighted that we have been able to appoint David Wolffe as CFO Designate to take over from David Surtees when he retires in 2023. We believe that David will bring valuable experience to the Pod Point board as we build on the foundation set by our IPO in late 2021."

Erik Fairbairn, CEO of Pod Point, commented: "I am delighted to welcome David onto the team. I am looking forward to working with him as we continue on our mission to make a future where travel doesn't damage the Earth."

David Wolffe commented: "Pod Point is a business at the forefront of a revolution in travel, with visionary leadership and great backing. I'm really excited to be joining the team and building on the fantastic progress so far."
