Prior to founding his own business in the UK, he worked for Soda Club International (now called Soda Stream and listed on the NASDAQ) as Group Special Projects Manager, tasked with setting up the Group’s international manufacturing facilities, including in the UK and Israel. In 1995, Jonathan set up a manufacturing company specialising in designing and manufacturing medical and laboratory plastics equipment.

After the successful sale of this business, Jonathan joined the Group in 2004 with the remit to set up and oversee the Group’s Chinese and Korean manufacturing facilities.
