Geoff Love was formerly Chief Executive Officer of Commify, Europe's leading provider of business messaging solutions. After leading a management buyout of Nottingham-based Esendex, he partnered with private equity to create the Commify group of companies. Working with over 35,000 businesses around the world and with turnover approaching €100m, Commify's mission is to 'make business communication brilliant'. The group operates around a dozen global brands from its Nottingham headquarters.
After graduating from Sheffield University with a degree in Business Studies, Geoff started his career in retail banking, specialising in marketing, where he held a number of senior roles with the likes of Lloyds TSB and Alliance & Leicester. He was Customer Marketing Director of HomeServe and a member of its UK board, seeing its sales increase tenfold during his tenure, before swapping insurance for software.
Geoff lives in Nottingham with his two teenage children and wife, who is a senior lecturer at NTU.
