One of the co-founders of Pace, the world’s leading supplier of set-top boxes to the pay TV market, has launched the first in what he intends will be a series of start-ups with ambitious partners.

Rob Fleming and former Relay Recruitment business manager Kate Hill have formed Cubed Resourcing, a specilaist recruitment company that head-hunts mid-level professionals in the electronics, FMCG manufacturing and related supply-chain markets.

Based in Wetherby, Cubed is the first in Fleming’s new portfolio of start-ups that work to his ‘expertise for equity’ concept. The business model, which will see entrepreneurs gradually acquire the companies they jointly establish with him, aims to encourage and mentor a new generation of owner-managers across the North.
