Dave Marsland joins Finematter as CTO


Renaissance are delighted to announce the appointment of Dave Marsland as CTO at Finematter.

Finematter is a fashion-tech start-up on a mission to digitalize the €300bn+ jewellery market, one of the last remaining analogue industries in the global retail landscape. Finematter are building a modular, end-to-end technology platform to connect makers with buyers all across the globe and change the way this market operates today.
With offices in London and Copenhagen, Finematter has its roots in Scandinavian design with a global outlook.

Having developed his core engineering skills during the rapid growth stages at Just Eat, Dave explored the B2B market with payments platform provider Paddle as VP Engineering before moving back into the B2C world as VP Engineering at health and fitness business Hussle. These experiences have provided Dave with a really solid grounding and insight into how technology can drive commercial success and customer engagement.
Co-Founder and CEO Caroline Chalmer commented “Dave comes with a wealth of marketplace experience from Just Eat Takeaway.com, Paddle, Hussle Official and we’ve been so impressed with him throughout the interview process. Perhaps more importantly, we knew we’d enjoy working together and having fun building a market-leading business.”
