He has held a number of commercial senior management roles during his career including: Marketing Services Director for the British Tourist Authority (BTA) and the English Tourist Board, Marketing Director of English Heritage and Commercial Manager of London Zoo and Whipsnade Park. For the past four years, he has been based in London working on the country’s public presentation overseas.

Peter Cowling, standing-down as Director of the Museum, after five years, says: “Jonathan’s wealth of experience and knowledge makes him highly suitable for the role. I know the Museum will continue to grow with his guidance and leadership and I look forward to following its successful progress for years to come.
