Since its formation, Ecademy has established itself as a dynamic membership organisation aimed at small and medium business owners, providing entrepreneurs with networks and contacts to help them grow their businesses. It has pioneered the need for businesses to engage online in a trusted, safe environment and is recognised as the premieronline network for businesses in the UK.
As founder and chairman of www.Constructaquote.com and Moorhouse Group, one of the UK's top 100 insurance brokers, Lyndon Wood brings a wide range of commercial experience to Ecademy and will work with the founders to invest in the development of the community.
In February this year, he published Diary of a Fortune Hunter, a manual of his entrepreneurial experience and advice. In his new role, he will provide investment to help business owners share their knowledge and assist each other in growing their businesses. He will also oversee the building of a new online platform for Ecademy, due early next year.
Thomas Power, co-founder and new CEO of Ecademy, commented:
“We are delighted to announce the arrival of Lyndon Wood as the new chairman of Ecademy as we further invest in the development of the community. He has an outstanding track record as a successful entrepreneur and he brings a wealth of creativity, connections and business acumen that will fuel the future growth prospects for Ecademy.”
Lyndon Wood commented:
“Thomas and Penny have built Ecademy into a powerful and highly interactive community for thousands of entrepreneurs. We now have a significant development budget and a great vision which we will use to make Ecademy the best and most useful business social community in the world.”
