Myzone, a global leader in fitness technology, is pleased to announce a significant leadership transition as Dave Wright, the company’s founder, steps down from his role as CEO.
In a strategic move, the Board has appointed David Stalker, the current CEO of EMEA and president of EuropeActive, as the new CEO, effective immediately.
Citing life, work, family balance, Wright’s decision to relinquish his role as CEO is a testament to his dedication to Myzone’s growth and his commitment to positioning the company for a further liquidity event.
Under Wright’s visionary leadership, Myzone has become a driving force in the fitness technology industry, transforming the way individuals engage with their health and fitness.

I’m excited to work with David and the team to continue to have a worldwide impact on positive exercise habits in the years ahead.”
Stalker, who has served as EMEA CEO since 2018, brings an unparalleled wealth of experience and leadership to his new role as Group CEO. With a deep understanding of the fitness industry and a proven track record, he’s well-equipped to guide Myzone into its next phase of growth and expansion.
In his new role Stalker will work closely with Wright, the executive team, investors and key stakeholders to ensure Myzone continues to deliver innovative fitness technology solutions and enhance the customer experience.
“Dave’s entrepreneurial passion in driving the growth of Myzone over the past decade and beyond has been phenomenal, and I really look forward to continuing working with him in his new role,” said Stalker. “Moving forward, I’m excited to have the opportunity to scale the business and exercise my experience, supported by Dave and surrounded by an incredible team. Together, we will innovate and execute in bringing heart rate training, health and well-being to the next level of visibility and adoption.”
Wright will remain actively involved in the company, focusing on global initiatives, industry partnerships and product innovation. His passion and vision will continue to help drive Myzone forward as he takes on a more strategic role within the organization.
The company expresses its gratitude to Wright for his outstanding leadership and looks forward to a seamless transition under Stalker’s capable guidance.
