UNiDAYS CEO steps down

Josh Rathour, UNiDAYS

Josh Rathour, the co-founder of Nottingham-based student affinity networking UNiDAYS, has stepped down.

Rathour will be replaced by the firm’s other co-founder Jon Hawley, who steps up from chief identify officer. Rathour, CEO since 2011, will continue in a consultancy role with the company.

Rathour said: “After a chance conversation with my daughter who was 5 at the time, I was motivated to build a platform to support, enable and inspire students worldwide. By pioneering online trust and identity technology at scale we developed a marketplace that has generated billions of dollars and a highly profitable business with no external investment. I’m very proud of our achievements so far and believe Jon will lead the company to even greater heights in the future.”

Hawley added@ “I am excited about the opportunity to lead UNiDAYS into its next phase of growth.

“We have a talented team and a strong commitment to championing student success and wellbeing while facilitating meaningful connections between students and the brands that resonate with their lifestyles and aspirations.

“Josh has been an exceptional leader for UNiDAYS, driving growth and innovation, and I am honoured to build upon the strong foundation he has set.”
