Jonathan is our ‘go-to’ man for all things process and performance improvement.
Jonathan Watt is a qualified Engineer and MBA holder plus he is our in-house linguist being fluent in French and German. He has more than 30 years of experience leading businesses and delivering critical projects across the automotive, aerospace, technology, and energy sectors.
Jonathan has outstanding subject matter expertise in supply chain, procurement, and transformational project management. It’s good for us that he also has a keen interest in food and drink because as the saying goes, an army marches on its stomach!
When he is fuelled up, Jonathan is always up for a challenge – setting new goals and using the latest techniques and technologies to improve performance. In fact, we can vouch for Jonathan’s multifaceted approach to achieving results because as the photo shows, he is always the first one in the team to jump on the office exercise bike which is ‘geared up’ to charge your mobile phone, whilst also recharging yourself, during a busy day at work.
A little bit more about Jonathan…
- Senior Consultant – Process & Performance
- “Either you run the day or the day runs you.” Jim Rohn. I started listening to Jim in the early 2000’s when I was in a rut. His philosophy helped enormously in providing me a new outlook on life.
- Spending time with the family and taking on property development projects. We’ve recently invested in some new properties and it’s a real labour of love for the whole family to get involved in and benefit from. I bring the due diligence skills I have honed in my business career to the table and the family do the rest.
- In 2019, my wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary enjoying a cruise to New York on the last transatlantic liner, Queen Mary 2. It was then followed by a road trip around New England, which was also fabulous.
- a bottle of Vieux Telegraph Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It’s off the value scale competing with wines 3 times the price and reminds me of the years I spent living in the South of France when I was with AIRBUS.
- Each December, I spend a day volunteering with a group of people to make food hampers for those in need. Last year we put together over 200 hampers full of Christmas dinners which were distributed around the local community. It’s a really humbling feeling which makes you appreciate how fortunate you are and it’s great to give something back.
- To combine my love of technology and sports, I recently bought an exercise bike and set myself the challenge of cycling the 674 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats. I can hook up my tablet which not only tracks the distance and my performance but also visually shows me the route as I’m cycling from point-to-point. The bike even adjusts the resistance automatically to simulate the hills which can be a struggle.
