OPERATOR Pure Gym has appointed Humphrey Cobbold as chief executive officer.
Peter Roberts, Pure Gym’s founder and current CEO, will become executive chairman and the appointment coincides with further growth at the company, with over half a million member visits to Pure Gym’s facilities every week.
Humphrey said: “I have watched Pure Gym’s progress with interest both as a fitness enthusiast and businessman. Since launching in 2009, Pure Gym has fundamentally changed the gym landscape in the UK and in turn become the largest operator in the country.
“Their customer-centric, technology driven offering has enabled gym goers to access larger facilities at any time, complemented by personalised training and a full range of classes; all delivered at an amazing price. I am delighted to be joining one of the UK’s fastest-growing private companies in a sector with significant further expansion opportunities."
