Jonathan has spent over 25 years within the marketing communications industry, starting with the creative agency M&C Saatchi, demonstrating his talents within the Sports and Entertainment side of the business on brands like Formula One, World Superbikes, SEGA and Arsenal, and eventually leaving to start-up ENERGY over 14 years ago.

Jonathan has built ENERGY around its core value - finding new innovative ways for brands to connect with their audiences. Over the years, ENERGY has partnered with global brands Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Volkswagen, eBay, and Global Radio, creating award winning brand experiences across the globe.

If running ENERGY wasn’t enough, Jonathan also co-founded WeAreFearless in 2015, an integrated creative agency that solves business challenges differently through culture, sports and entertainment.
