New appointment supports ongoing growth
Modulous has promoted Jason Bennett-Meere to UK Managing Director. Jason will work closely with CEO Chris Bone, US Managing Director Janet Stephenson, and Markus Cosmann, who heads up Modulous’ European operations.
Bennett-Meere’s promotion follows Modulous’ rapid growth from 14 members of staff 12 months ago to over 50 today, including expansion into key European and US markets. It coincides with the closing stages of a Series A funding round to be announced in the coming days that will propel Modulous towards the Q3 release of its first software tool.
Bennett-Meere is a tech-focused finance professional who has held roles as Head of Finance at Nominet UK, the manager of the .uk domain name, and Divisional Finance Lead at Microsoft. He says: “I am delighted to be taking on this key role in what is a landmark year for Modulous. With the first affordable homes project employing our Kit of Parts due to break ground this Spring, and our software entering Beta testing, we are seeing our ambition to address the global housing crisis through the unique pairing of physical and digital technologies come to fruition. It is a proud moment for the whole team.”
CEO Chris Bone adds: “Jason is perfectly placed to oversee the core corporate functions at Modulous as we continue to scale at pace. The market traction we have built puts us on a firm footing for further growth, and Jason is exceptionally qualified to take on this new role.”
Modulous was founded in 2018 and is backed by Blackhorn Ventures, Groundbreak Ventures, Cemex Ventures, and a long-term strategic partnership with Innovate UK. In March, Modulous was selected as one of ten companies to take part in Microsoft’s AI for Environmental Sustainability Accelerator, in partnership with The Met Office and Social Tech Trust.
