As batyr’s CEO (Chief Executive Energy Officer), Jon above all else is responsible for focusing, monitoring and magnifying the team’s passion and energy. batyr puts all its energy into smashing the stigma surrounding mental health, so that young people can have positive, authentic conversations and not suffer in silence.
Prior to batyr, Jon worked for many years in big corporates building his skills and experience in strategy, technology, efficiency and improvement. With a breadth of business and leadership skills he jumped at the opportunity to move into the not-for-profit world, to make a difference where it is really needed. Jon’s first leap into the sector was with New Horizons a leading mental health and well-being organisation, a great place to test and learn before moving to batyr.
Jon is also a bit of an urban greeny at heart, and when he is not in the office supporting the team and unlocking new opportunities for batyr, you will find him spending time outdoors with his family – whether it’s camping or snowboarding, or even better, camping in the snow and snowboarding.
