A law graduate from the University of Aberdeen, Jonny entered the Saltire Fellowship programme following five years working as an investment manager for the UK's leading independent private client investment management firm. This experience has given him a sound knowledge of equity markets and the financial system in the UK, as well as helping to develop his client facing, analytical and decision making skills. A passionate networker, Jonny founded and built up Edinburgh Young Professionals, a highly successful cross industry networking platform in Edinburgh that in four years has seen its membership swell to over 1800.

Following the four month Fellowship programme at Babson College in Boston, Jonny is joining Insignia Technologies, an exciting new Scottish firm operating in the FMCG sector. His roles here will include reviewing the business plan, and updating the Sales and Marketing strategy as well as working closely with the COO.

A passionate, if somewhat agricultural golfer, keen runner, and occasional amateur boxer, Jonny enjoys taking on new challenges and pushing himself outside of his comfort zone. Jonny aims to build on the experiences gained so far in his working career and more recently at Babson College to help grow and globalize Scottish businesses. He is particularly interested in the Food and Drink sector and the ever-increasing demand from overseas for high quality Scottish products.
