Jon uses this extensive experience to devise bespoke planning strategies for our clients, giving them the best possible chance of success. Elsewhere, Jon is heavily involved in running Darlington Football Club. He also enjoys a round of golf, where his enthusiastic approach goes some way towards compensating for his lack of talent.
