PJ Scott & Eddie Latham – Velocity Commerce

PJ Scott & Eddie Latham

Directors

Eddie Latham and PJ Scott are co-founders and Directors of Velocity Commerce. With a background in business development, Eddie joined Play.com in 2012 as an eCommerce Consultant. PJ started his career as a buyer for numerous companies, including eBuyer, and held this position at Play.com for more than seven years.

In 2013, PJ and Eddie met and, utilising their combined knowledge of the industry, and with just £1,500 each of their own money, the pair started Velocity Commerce by selling clearance products online out of their homes in Cambridge. They ran the business part-time for the first 18 months and in that time they grew Velocity Commerce into a business turning over £100,000 a month. 

The continued growth led PJ and Eddie to make Velocity Commerce a full-time career and they both took voluntary redundancy. Since then, the business has continued to sky-rocket. Today, the business has been named the 92nd fastest growing company in Europe in the FT 1000 report 2019. Eddie and PJ are responsible for identifying new partnership opportunities and oversee all company operations.
