Mike Ellicock, Co-Founder and Chief Executive, Plain Numbers

Mike Ellicock.jpgMike is a social entrepreneur. Following a military career, an MBA and a brief stint in banking, he joined Numicon as Chief Executive in 2008. Rapid growth led to sale to Oxford University Press. He launched National Numeracy as founding Chief Executive in 2012, building the organisation from little more than an idea to become a well-respected national charity with strong evidence of impact. Having handed over as Chief Executive there in 2020, Mike is now utilising his unparalleled knowledge of this largely hidden consumer vulnerability to work with firms to improve comprehension and thereby enable good outcomes for customers.
