Stuart Lewis, Founder, Rest Less
Stuart was inspired to set up Rest Less after watching a Channel 4 documentary called The Old People’s Home for Four Year Olds in early 2018. The television programme highlighted the myriad of benefits that the older generation can offer us but yet they are the forgotten generation.
Stuart set up Rest Less with a goal to create a membership community which helps its audience regain their sense of purpose through fulfilling opportunities to work and volunteer.
Prior to setting up Rest Less, Stuart was Chief Commercial Officer at a fintech start up where he was responsible for marketing, strategy and growth. Before that, Stuart was at Octopus Investments, leading the rapid growth of its Tax Efficient Investments business whilst being a prominent advocate for start-up finance and the Venture Capital Trust industry as a whole.
Previously, Stuart was Head of Consumer Cards for American Express in Belgium and worked on building the online grocery business for Amazon. In his early career, Lewis held a number of roles in other financial services businesses such as Barclays and Capital One.
