Jon’s passion for food started whilst studying at the University of York when he took on the role of kitchen porter in Café Rouge. He quickly worked his way through the culinary ranks to chef-de-partie and made the decision to pursue a long-term career in hospitality. After securing a place on the graduate scheme with Sodexho UK, Jon quickly excelled through both management and strategic research roles. The subsequent years however, proved truly formative as Jon established himself as a pre-eminent sales director in the catering industry in roles with Elior, Baxter Storey and Centerplate. This culminated in Jon being named Salesperson of the year in the 2013 Foodservice Cateys. In 2014, Jon joined the Compass family as Levy UK’s business development director. After a period of impressive growth, Jon transitioned into a leadership role as managing director of Levy Leisure before taking his current role as managing director of Levy UK. He now takes Levy UK into an exciting period; honing sustainable practices, implanting meaningful technology to enhance the guest (and staff) experience and true culinary innovation.
