”I am delighted to be recognised in the 2019 DataIQ100. It is an honour to be associated with such an impressive list of talented and influential data professionals.”
With an impressive CV spanning more than 25 years – including leading some of the UK’s largest data companies – Claritas, Altwood Systems, Acxiom, Ai Data Intelligence, Communisis and currently and now, as CEO of REaD Group – Jon has built a reputation for driving innovation and success in data communications.
Jon joined REaD Group in 2014, as part of the company’s exponential growth and is responsible for the strategic direction and continued success of the business – including adding some top brands to its A-list client base.
Integral to this strategy is his belief that data sits at the heart of everything – and understanding and interpreting that data is key to any brand’s success.
In addition to building on REaD Group’s position as market leader in data cleaning and quality, he has been instrumental in developing the company’s service offerings – including an enviable insight capability and winning contracts for the delivery of Single Customer View solutions, reflecting a real benchmark for REaD Group.
A passionate advocate of utilising technology to drive innovation and deliver optimum results for clients – Jon is the driving force behind the implementation of Data as a Service (DaaS) at REaD Group. As well as raising the bar for data quality and provision in the industry, the GDPR’s implementation last year presented significant complexities in having 3rd party data processors – and DaaS provides an elegant and equitable solution to that challenge.
Jon has been an authoritative contributor to the direct marketing industry throughout his career holding positions on DMA’s Data Council, various working parties and the Institute of Direct Marketing Data Council. A genuine industry influencer, he is sought after as a media commentator and a trusted advisor on data marketing, privacy, compliance and the GDPR.
Congratulation to Jon for this much deserved recognition!
