Cambridge, UK — June 3, 2023 — Today Jumptech announced the appointment of Charlie Bodycote as its new CEO. Through our purpose-built software, an ecosystem of people and processes is supported to simplify the transition to electrification. With 30 years of experience in the tech industry, Charlie brings a wealth of knowledge to this role.  

His success in new technological spaces – scaling them into profitable companies – shows how he has an exceptional vision for how products and companies should grow while caring deeply about his team and their success.  

Phil Nunn, Founder of Jumptech and Charlie reconnected after his return to the UK to set up the UK arm for Comestri, an ecommerce technology platform. 

People loving what they do is one of my core values, as anyone who has worked with me knows. In the process of scaling the business, I realised that I wasn’t enjoying my role as much as I once did. Taking my own advice, I decided to change my position. With that said, I will work on building the Jumptech business in the USA while still owning the culture and long-term vision, and pass the responsibilities to Charlie, who will take over as CEO.

After a period in which Charlie consulted Jumptech he accepted the role of Chief Information Officer. With his unique combination of commercial, managerial and technical skills, the progression into the CEO position was a natural next step.

If you have interacted with Jumptech, you’ll know what an amazing group of people we have; it’s a real privilege to be leading them. We’re playing our part in a hugely significant energy transition, and the ecosystem that we have built is inspiring. I’m excited to be starting the next stage of our growth, as we step into some key international markets, with the support of a fantastic group of investors

Charlie Bodycote
CEO, Jumptech

Throughout his career Charlie’s passion for technology and the belief in its power to transform a business saw Charlie manage development projects for leading software providers including Microsoft, Lucent and Cisco at the start of his career. With his entrepreneurial spirit, Charlie joined a major fashion retailer in its early stages in 2003. In his role as Chief Technology Officer, he led teams to develop and deliver a world-class ecommerce infrastructure for the brand, gaining extensive experience within the retail industry. Having identified that emerging markets had yet to gain the same traction in ecommerce, Charlie moved to Hong Kong to gain an early advantage.

As COO of Outblaze, Charlie helped to execute a major asset sale to IBM and led several business integration activities for the merged entity. He later joined Lane Crawford as Director of Online Technology and Operations, to build a team that could develop and scale their ecommerce strategy. His journey of the ecommerce retail industry in China, saw Charlie embark on another entrepreneurial opportunity. He founded Purecomm, a piece of technology which links the ecommerce arm of large retailers with their portfolio of physical shops.

Today, after the announcement of Charlie’s appointment as CEO, Founder and now President of Americas at Jumptech, Phil Nunn said, “Charlie is one of the most positive and visionary people I know and very few people have such technical depth and commercial breadth. The whole team at Jumptech are excited for the future with Charlie at the helm.”
