Executive Director

Once a geek, always a geek! After a career with the largest PC communications vendor in the world, Jon helped set up Tickling Trout® to deliver marketing service that he would like, as a salesman, to receive. Simple, measurable and something that makes a difference to the bottom line.

Jon had his baptism in sales after a year in Halfords and then 8 years at the company now called Alliance. Here his interest in computers led him to develop his career in mainframe operations.  He then joined one of the largest food companies in the world to manage scheduled work on their mainframe and mini systems.

However, the lure of a dealership (and new car!) was so strong he later joined the world’s largest PC comms manufacturer and then a little later down the line a software vendor backed by Citrix where he met David.

Then they ran away together to form Tickling Trout and the rest, as they say, is history.

Jon is a classic car fan and is the proud owner of a fine example of the world’s best-selling sports coupe. You will have to call him to find out what it is if you don’t know!
