Meet the team
behind Zipp.

Charlie
Gleeson


Founder and CEO

Charlie spends his time shouting about Zipp from the rooftops to attract new business and investment while simultaneously ensuring that all Zipp's teams have the resources they need to reach their full potential. He also makes sure everyone’s having a bit of craic while doing so. Outside of Zipp, Charlie pretends to unwind by surfing, playing with his doggos and catching up with his mates over a few pints.

David Maloney

UK General Manager

Meet Dave, our UK General Manager. We struggling to find anything he was good at in Ireland so we had to ship him across the water. He used to be a great family man until he became vegan and started running marathons. He now calls the rest of us his kids. In fairness his 20+ years experience in various senior roles in IBM does help sometimes when we have a problem that needs to be solved. 

Ben Duffy
Operations Lead

Ben is Zipp’s Operations Lead. He is responsible for ensuring both on-the-ground and off-the-ground Ops are running smoothly. He spends his free time playing piano and teaching the more senior members of the Ops team how to make TikToks.

Emma O'Gorman

Marketing Associate

Emma runs Zipp's marketing efforts. With an undergraduate degree in data science and a master's in marketing she brings a sharp quantitative and qualitative edge to all our communications. Emma is definitely the nicest person on the Zipp team (but honestly, there's not much competition).

At Zipp we value three things: honesty, drive and having the craic. These are the values we embody as we work to reinvent how people move in towns and cities. Our mission of "mobility done right" would not be achievable without our amazing team. Meet a few of them below.

Will O'Brien
VP, Growth & Government Affairs

Will leads our Growth & Government Affairs teams. He leverages his previous life as a strategy consultant to work with stakeholders to collaboratively design community-centric micromobility schemes that are tailored to serve our partner’s mobility needs. When he’s not introducing people to Zipp Mobility’s “mobility done right” ethos you’ll probably find him hiking, pitching his tent, running or swimming in the Irish sea!

Peter Gomez
COO

Peter hails from the Lone Star state (Texas) but as his name suggests he's got Irish blood. Peter knows how to gets things done at Zipp and brings with him experience from his time working in the US scooter-sharing market to help us do mobility right. In his downtime you can find Peter golfing, rustling up some TexMex BBQ or spending time relaxing in his ancestral home of Wexford.

Carl Murray
Strategy & Growth Lead

Carl works on the Growth team at Zipp.  A recovering solicitor, he focuses on finding new ways for Zipp to grow in its existing markets and further afield. Carl sits beside Rob in the office. Carl doesn't enjoy this experience very much.

Bryan Maguire

CFO

Bryan has over 29 years of experience in the technology sector as a CEO and CFO. Bryan has taken a company from start-up to IPO on the NASDAQ and led funding rounds of more than €10 million. Bryan has worked with some of the Ireland’s most successful start-ups. 

Robert Coyle

Finance & Investment Lead

Rob leads our Finance & Investment team. He works alongside Charlie to prepare for investor pitches and manages finance-related matters in Zipp. Rob spends his weekends golfing, socialising and watching sport. Rob is also V.P of Fun in Zipp (self-appointed).

Lorcan Brophy


Investment Associate

Lorcan is a current Economics and Finance student at University College Dublin. He works with the Investment team to enable Zipp to grow. When he's not crunching numbers, Lorcan cooks incredible Asian food that puts all of Zipp's employee's lunchboxes to shame. Lorcan's also an avid surfer. Is he better than Charlie? The 2021 Zipp Mobility Surf Open is being planned to test that.
