MVF has announced an expansion of its senior leadership in preparation for huge anticipated growth. CEO and Co-founder Titus Sharpe is assuming the role of President, and CFO Michael Teixeira is taking up the role of CEO, effective immediately.
The changes are designed to strengthen MVF’s core leadership as the business embarks on an ambitious mergers and acquisitions strategy and continues to expand its scope into new markets and verticals.
President and Co-founder Titus Sharpe comments: “The expansion of our C-suite will ensure MVF has a watertight leadership team in place as we transition from medium size enterprise to global business.”
MVF has tripled in size in the last three years, opened an office in Austin, Texas, and now operates in over 120 countries around the world. This year they acquired top UK business publisher, startups.co.uk, and there are plans to acquire up to five more businesses before the end of 2017.
Sharpe continues: “Michael Teixeira has been with the business since 2012 and has played a key role in developing our vision and values and helping us achieve some of the fastest growing profits in the UK. He has the perfect combination of long-term vision and business acumen that will help drive MVF forward.”
CEO Michael Teixeira comments: “I am delighted to take on the role of CEO for MVF, a company which I am incredibly invested in and has such an exciting future ahead of it. We are about to enter into an accelerated phase of growth which will see us expand our staff, our reach and our operations worldwide. Titus and I will work closely together to achieve the next stage of growth and ensure that our culture and values grow with the business.”
This announcement comes after a number of new appointments over the last year including MVF CEO for the USA, Bjorn Zellweger, and Chief People Officer, Andrea Pattico, and the creation of number of director roles across the business.
