The Cocoon office has been buzzing with excitement.
We’re currently fundraising £2.5 million on Crowdcube, one of the leading equity crowdfunding platforms. At the time of writing, over 520 investors from around the world have invested £1.63 million. It’s amazing evidence of people’s belief in Cocoon. There is more exciting news too, as we welcome an impressive new addition to our team.
Robin Terrell, former CCO of Tesco, MD of Amazon.co.uk and MD of John Lewis Direct, is joining Cocoon as Chairman. He will be fantastic in supporting our growth in retail and partnerships, helping us achieve our mission to make protecting the home and people you love simple.
Currently serving on the board of William Hill, Karen Millen and Wilko, Robin brings a wealth of retail experience to support our senior team in bringing Cocoon’s vision to life. The announcement has already been picked up by the press, with coverage in Retail Week, Tech City News, Marketing Week and What Investment .

Our CEO, Sanjay Parekh welcomed Robin saying:
Robin is a highly respected and successful businessman bringing a formidable amount of expertise from leadership at brands such as Amazon and Tesco. We are absolutely delighted to welcome him to our team as Chairman.
I have no doubt that Cocoon will greatly benefit from Robin’s knowledge, experience and belief in putting customers first. He’s joining us at a key moment, as we invite our customers to join our journey and invest in Cocoon on Crowdcube. This investment will enable us to expand our retail distribution and insurance partnerships, where Robin’s strategic contributions are already proving immensely valuable.
