WHO ARE WE?
Founder & CEO
Prior to founding PIVOT®, Colin spent 25 years delivering software projects for companies such as Clifford Chance, OpenTable, and McKinsey & Company. His last nine years were in various tech roles at McKinsey Digital from hands-on coding to CTO-level positions for client startups. These startups were formed by some of the world's largest and most prestigious banks and corporations. Digital startup incubation and startup accelerators have been his main areas of expertise in recent years.
An avid sports and fitness enthusiast, he still plays cricket every summer and his passion for mountain biking has driven him to traverse the saw-toothed jagged peaks of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and cycle through some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery along the West Highland Way. For longer and more arduous feats on two wheels, Col cycled the entire length of South America with his younger brother and PIVOT co-founder, David, in 2007/8. It would be just over a decade later – and only two months after his wedding – that he would embark on a similar journey with Patricia: an epic six-month overlanding odyssey from London to Cape Town, South Africa, in an expedition-prepared Land Cruiser, all planned six weeks before they exchanged vows. After crossing through 21 countries in Europe and Africa and covering over 30,000 kilometres, the newlyweds celebrated crossing their honeymoon finish line atop Cape Town’s iconic Tabletop Mountain.
Founder & CCO
Patricia has over 20 years’ experience in content marketing with a career that began in the corporate and trust service sector in Gibraltar and Spain, organising HNWI events at The Sovereign Group. She later moved to Hong Kong where she continued in events for the Lan Kwai Fong Group before creating advertorial content at Cathay Pacific Airways’ in-house agency and advertising arm, McCann-Erickson.
After moving back to London in 2012, she became a Partner at John Lewis & Partners and produced advertorial content for the online store’s Home and Fashion directorates before being involved in a project at New Scotland Yard which digitised the London Metropolitan Police Service – building a new website that’s enabled 9 million Londoners to report crimes online.
Prior to co-founding PIVOT Fitness, Patricia launched and ran her own online sleep brand that she sold across six Amazon marketplaces and lauded in the London Evening Standard, Gadget Flow, The Daily Mail, and HELLO! Magazine.
Patricia and Col are married and have a daughter born a month before launching their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. In Q4 2020, PIVOT reached its funding goal and raised US $300,000.
