We are excited to announce the appointment of David Sproul as Board Advisor and Investor at SKOOT. It is invaluable to have someone with his business expertise and passion for climate solutions joining the SKOOT team. This comes just a few weeks after announcing the big news that SKOOT has become B-Corp certified.

David, the former Global Deputy CEO of Deloitte and current Chair of Starling Bank will help advise us in our run-up to Series A, following raising £4m in seed funding.

In just 16 months, SKOOT has offset and avoided over 1,000 tonnes of CO2, planted 240,000 trees and enabled users to drive, carbon-free, over 350,000 miles via the SKOOT app. It is great news having David come on board as we evolve our solutions to enable businesses to identify, offset and avoid carbon in all areas of their business, and we continue the race to net zero.

On the appointment, Greg Gormley, CEO said, “David’s passion and focus on driving and accelerating global ESG growth and his transformational expertise was something that we felt we could learn from and utilise for SKOOT, but more importantly, his understanding of the challenges and solutions businesses need today is invaluable.”

David Sproul, added, “I’m passionate about using my experience to advise businesses on climate change, and when I met the team at SKOOT, it felt like the perfect partnership. SKOOT is a relatively new business that has already demonstrated its ability to evolve and scale quickly and I’m joining a business that’s not only dynamic, but that also has the ambition to be a major force for good, cemented by its recent B-Corp accreditation.”

As everyone knows, it's not about how good you are, it's about how good your team are. So we are thrilled to welcome David to SKOOT and have him join an already very reputable list of advisors and investors.
