Jon Lonsdale


Jon has spent most of his career growing Octopus Group and is the agency’s CEO. He looks after all of the commercial dealings for the company, but is at his happiest when working with clients on campaigns and new ideas. Jon is a bit obsessive about everything to do with Octopus Group, intent on making the agency a great partner to the world’s most exciting technology brands, and the best place to work for every Octopede.

Before getting into technology marketing, Jon had aspirations to be on TV – until he worked out that very few people could decipher his Midlands accent. When he is not at work, he can be found watching, coaching or playing football with his two boys, or trying to create the perfect Negroni.
