Jon leads Enterprise Growth Services (EGS): a heavily-subsidised, non-profit extension of EY’s consulting business. EGS teams are drawn from EY offices across the world, and work hands-on on three- to six-month projects with small and growing social-impact businesses in low- and middle-income countries. EY looks for entrepreneurial businesses which create jobs and bring clean water, clean energy, affordable sanitation, education and healthcare to marginalised communities. EGS helps them better position themselves for growth, and gives EY people extraordinary opportunities for personal and professional development as part of an EY career.
Jon began his career with the British Army and then worked for The Prince’s Trust and Accenture. He has been with EY for eight years. Other roles with the firm have included global head of learning and development for EY’s Advisory (consulting) business, and operations director for Advisory in the UK and Ireland.
