The former CFO of molecular diagnostics company Genedrive has been appointed to join the board of Stockport-headquartered musicMagpie.

Matthew Fowler has been announced as the new CFO of the "re-commerce" seller, with a start date yet to be announced, following the promotion of Ian Storey - who held the role until April 2021 - to Group COO.

Prior to Genedrive, Fowler was Group Financial Controllor of Scapa Group, a multinational manufacturer, and before that Finance Manager at British Nuclear Group.

Steve Oliver, Co-founder of musicMagpie, will this week speak at Prolific North's reveal of the Top 75 Tech & Ecommerce Companies ranking, which you can book your place at here.

Martin Hellawell, musicMagpie Chairman, said: “I am delighted to be welcoming Matthew to musicMagpie. His experience of working in senior positions for AIM-quoted companies and his considerable financial and operational expertise will be hugely beneficial to musicMagpie as it continues its journey as a public company.”

Matthew Fowler added: “I am extremely excited to be joining a business of musicMagpie’s calibre and ambition. Given its unique circular economy model and consumer and societal trends, it is clear to me that the Group has significant growth potential.

"The Group’s impressive ESG credentials were also a major factor in my decision to join. I am looking forward to working with Steve, Ian and the rest of the team to realise the Group’s strategic plans for the future.”
