Tech Guru appointed as Regional Director at GJC Advisory

GJC are delighted to announce the appointment of Jon Newman as Regional Director to its growing South West region.

Jon who is based in Plymouth, joined GJC a few months ago as an associate, and has since gone from strength to strength in building out his network and client portfolio.

Jon is highly experienced in multiple disciplines ranging from sales, marketing, and IT, to programming, his real strength however, lies in understanding how new technologies can improve business effectiveness and how management teams need to evolve to meet those challenges and improve their market position. This can encompass anything from reviewing and updating business plans, team alignment behind newly developed strategies, market opportunity identification and qualification to developing and implementing the right KPIs to ensure optimum behaviour.

As Regional Director, Jon will be responsible for growing GJC’s footprint in the South West by bringing on board new consultants, developing the GJC partnerships strategy and expanding the business networks whilst sharing best practice.

Commenting on his new role Jon said “I see this as a great opportunity. As the pace of technology change continues to accelerate, the need for awareness and agility for all kinds of enterprise becomes ever more important. Companies that don’t respond to technology change quickly become irrelevant. Responding doesn’t mean blindly believing the hype and adopting the latest technology, but understanding how the value proposition is impacted and where value can be delivered in the new landscape. There is a fantastic combination of energy and opportunity in the South West, and I am committed to helping the start-ups and SMEs in the region to reach their full potential. The RD role with GJC provides the perfect platform”.

GJC CEO Gavin Jones commented on the new appointment: “ Jon brings a new dimension to the advisory and we’re delighted he’s taken on this opportunity. He has such a diverse background across sectors and disciplines but it’s his expertise in the technology market that we’re particularly excited about. It opens us up to a whole new space and really sets us apart from our competitors. I have no doubt that Jon will be an excellent addition to the Senior team at GJC, paving the way forward for us”.

Jon is demonstrating his expertise at an online seminar on Thursday 29th July, where he will be discussing Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies and if they really matter. If you are interested, you can register for this event here.
