Jonathan started as a marketer before evolving into product development, strategic planning and team leading. Having been Marketing Director of Blackstone Press, he became MD of Letts Educational, then the UK’s leading publisher of GCSE and A Level study guides. In 1999 he started Learning Matters, and sold it to SAGE Publications in 2011.
He lives in Exeter and with a base in London and splits his time between his four children in their early twenties and a number of voluntary, consultancy and non-executive roles.
