Ross is a life-long health and fitness fanatic, studying Sports Science and Psychology at the University of Glasgow before attaining a BSci (Upper Hons) in Neuroscience – reading physiology, biology, anatomy, pharmacology and neuroscience. In his early career Ross was Co-Founder, CEO and then Chairman of the world’s largest energy b2b network (Oil & Gas Council), expanding the company rapidly across five continents. Once the company was established in Asia, he sold his interests to a multinational events company. Ross then refocused his efforts to health and fitness, launching The Jungle, an MMA and HIIT gym concept in Singapore, and becoming an Ambassador for lululemon. Experiencing first-hand the fragmentation of the industry in Asia, he created FIT Summit, a network to connect the owners, investors and management of health, fitness and wellness companies. It has since developed into one of the world’s largest industry networks for connectivity, thought leadership and business development. Through the covid pandemic Ross cofounded the Singapore Fitness Alliance, the non-profit industry association for Singapore’s fitness industry. In 2022 he cofounded Active Franchising, a new industry platform for promoting regional and international franchise investment opportunities. In his spare time Ross enjoys group exercise, weight training, meeting inspirational people and spending time with his family. He resides in Singapore.
