Jon O’Donnell, Managing Director, ESI Commercial
Jon joined the Evening Standard as a key part of the exciting team that took the newspaper free and saw the business evolve into ESI Media following the acquisition of The Independent brands, and the launch of London Live. Most recently Jon, as Managing Director of ESI Commercial, oversaw the transformation of The Independent into a digital only product where it is now the UK’s fastest growing quality news website and largest pure play news site in the UK. Jon also oversees the newly launched events business ESI Live, providing an experiential distribution channel for clients, and commercial content creation team, Story Studio. In his spare time Jon can be found doing Ironman triathlons…whilst the body permits. Longer term, Jon is the lucky husband to wife Jacque, and doting father to daughter Daisy.
