MoveGB has named Leigh Phillipson as director of partnerships.

A consumer tech specialist, Phillipson joins MoveGB from beauty treatment booking company Treatwell, where he was sales director. During Phillipson’s tenure, Treatwell enjoyed rapid growth and was subsequently bought by Recruit Holdings on a valuation of US$222m.

At MoveGB Phillipson will work directly with the activity membership platform's fitness partners.

“Leigh brings a wealth of experience to the management team and a proven track record," said Justin Mendleton, MoveGB's commercial director

"He is passionate about growing the value businesses can leverage from partnering with Move, something that is at the core of our mission and purpose.”

Commenting on his new role, Phillipson said: “I'm excited to be collaborating with our fitness partners to keep increasing the number of active people across the UK.

"MoveGB is showing really impressive growth and with our plans for wider UK expansion we will accelerate our ability help people to find the activities they enjoy when they want them."

Before his stint at Treatwell, Phillipson was part of the core team responsible for the international spread of online food order and delivery service, Just Eat.
