Our Team

Kim Horton - CEO

Kim is a successful businesswoman with over 30 years' experience in retail with the John Lewis Partnership, Tesco.com and Argos. She has unparalleled knowledge of retail operations, buying, merchandising, stock management & audit and e-commerce. Kim is passionate about customer centricity and its principles underpin everything at Equus.

Kim is a keen rider and works hard on her hacking and flatwork with her horse, Waldo. An ex-showjumper, he often jumps out of his field. Which helps Kim smash the goals set by her Fitbit, which she also loves.

Steve Wood - COO

Steve has pursued a successful IT consulting career with companies such as Tesco.com, O2 and BP. He has extensive experience of e-commerce having led the successful technical delivery of Tesco's Wine, grocery and Direct websites.

Steve's experience is underpinned by an MBA from Cranfield School of Management.

Steve doesn't ride but he is very good at mucking out. To get away from it all, he plays competitive chess at club level and supports Wolverhampton Wanderers. Both of which have taught him a lot about optimism.

David Adair - Non-exec chairman

David is an experienced finance professional (ACA) with proven leadership skills across a range of industries and business types. He is a Partner with Jenson Solutions and has a portfolio of board positions with high growth businesses, with a particular focus on technology and online sectors. David also holds advisory positions with a number of international
conglomerates.


David is a keen cyclist and golfer but at 6ft 6 isn't convinced that there is a horse big enough for him to ride. He also struggles to fit through the very low door at EQUUS HQ which provides the rest of the team with much amusement.

Martin Spiller - Non-Exec Director

Martin is an experienced finance professional (FCA) and a qualified but non-practicing barrister-at-law. He is a Partner with Jenson Solutions having previously co-founded and then exited a successful FMCG business. He holds a number of board positions and also focusses on advising management teams in a wide range of businesses from high growth early stage companies through to members of the FTSE 100.

Martin is a keen rugby player, despite his advancing years, and also wedges his rotund frame into cycling Lycra when the occasion demands. He used to ride horses in his younger days but believes now it would probably amount to animal cruelty.
