Ben joined Hyperoptic after 3 years as Finance Director at traditional retail company Rigby and Peller where he was instrumental in expanding the business footprint both in stores and online leading to the doubling of turnover and profit. He led the sale of the business in 2011 prior to joining Hyperoptic. His track record and passion for cutting edge technology made him the ideal choice for Hyperoptic, joining the Company prior to the first roll out of the network. He provides the business with the financial leadership and discipline to underwrite the Hyperoptic business plan and has helped manage the business through its high growth phase to ensure a strong business case underwrites all investment proposals. Ben is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales.
