Over twenty years of startup experience. 3x startup to IPO.


About Ross Boardman

I help CEOs to scale their product and teams.

I help CEOs who want executive-level technology leadership, that aligns with their business vision; without the full-time executive cost.

I've helped many businesses to grow into market leaders.

I was lucky. I had one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world as my mentor.

I've worked for some of the fastest-growing companies in the world.

I was part of the leadership team that became the UK's largest-ever technology IPO.

An excellent background in shipping digital products for Nintendo, Disney, Argos, ASDA, Tesco, LADBible, Honda, Manchester United, Phones4U, NBrown, Ultimate Performance, Myprotein and Unilever.



My approach is focused on results and I have a genuine desire to help others succeed and make a positive impact.

By sharing my knowledge, experience, and insights with aspiring entrepreneurs and executives, I am building strong relationships and contributing to the success of many startups and companies.

Being a fractional CTOBusiness coaching and developing digital products, for me is more than just a service or a business endeavor. It is my passion, my way of giving back to the industry and the individuals I wholeheartedly believe in.

In each client session, I strive to empower those I work with and equip them with the tools they need to navigate the challenges of the business world.

I value the connections I make with these talented individuals and cherish the opportunity to contribute to their personal and professional growth. Witnessing their progress and achievements brings me immense joy and fulfillment.

Coaching and being a board advisor allows me to make a meaningful impact and leave a positive legacy. It is my way of giving back and nurturing the next generation of leaders. I am grateful for the opportunity to play a part in their journeys and contribute to their success stories. Through coaching, I am creating a ripple effect of success that extends beyond my own reach.

I am dedicated to making a difference and sharing my expertise in real-time. It is not just about transactions or services rendered; it is about making a lasting impact, igniting potential, and helping others thrive.

As a business leader, entrepreneur, business coach, and public speaker, I am passionate about helping others achieve their full potential.

I have a proven track record of helping startups and established businesses scale and succeed through my coaching programs and online courses.

Previously, I ran one of the largest in-house agencies in the UK, working at The Hut Group (THG) and managed software engineering, product, UX and creative departments and oversaw the recruitment, on-boarding and training of staff growing the team from 2 to 150 (7400%).

I designed and implemented the Group’s proprietary technology platform, enhancing its functionality and globalisation capability to 35 languages and 42 currencies, 32 payment options and the ability to deliver to 193 territories.

I led enterprise technology and creative projects from concept through implementation, with full accountability for timelines, milestones, risk assessment, budget and delivery whilst supporting group sales growth from £10m to £736m (7259%), EBITDA increase from £5m to £69m (1280%).

I have an excellent background in shipping digital products for Nintendo, Disney, Argos, ASDA, Tesco, LADBible, Honda, Manchester United, Phones4U, NBrown, Myprotein and Unilever.
