The Team

The Copronet team has a big vision for the industry. Together they have a compelling mix of deep sector knowledge and technical expertise

David Stapleton

Chief Executive Officer

The Co-founder of Copronet (formerly TenderSpace), David’s extensive experience in successful commercial property ventures truly cemented his view that the industry needed a unifying common denominator. He saw a way to simplify, and at the same time strengthen, the ties that bind us all towards the same productive, profitable goals. Copronet is the result of this vision, and it’s a result that David is really excited to have helped realise.

Emma Stapleton

Chief Operating Officer

Emma is the Co-founder of Copronet (formerly TenderSpace). Integral to shaping Copronet’s raison d’etre, Emma – like David – knew that the only way to bring construction together was to create a network that is as hard-working and goal-focused as the people who populate it. But why stop there? Having spent many years in Board-level positions within the industry, Emma knew that Copronet could also become a powerful force for growth, and she’s worked alongside David and the team to forge the tools that can make this happen.
