Our Origins

‘The market needs it, it doesn’t exist, so I’ll create it myself.’

John Maltman, founder and CEO of e.fundamentals built a corporate career in FMCG sales and general management with global giants Procter & Gamble, PepsiCo and Asda Walmart before stepping into the world of digital start-ups.

Frustrated with the Fast Moving Consumer Goods industry’s weak reaction to the enormous opportunities presented by eCommerce, John decided to apply his deep client-side knowledge to help clients win online.
