After graduating in Biological Sciences and spending a brief time in research, Jon spent 30 years in the reinsurance and wholesale insurance industry. Most of this was in the field of medical expense insurance, mainly for the USA market. This has given him a great understanding of the value of the NHS, as opposed to other systems.
The experience of detailed and numerically based negotiation of (re)insurance contracts, together with Jon's scientific background, has helped in developing, presenting and arguing some of Voice's opinions on the consultation options put forward in West, North and East Cumbria. Jon also has experience with implementing new compliance regimes, and user input into design of computer based business systems.
Jon has had family links with West Cumbria for roughly 40 years and moved here permanently in 2008.
