Jon Milton

Director

read bio

Jon originally joined Comensura in 2006 as Business Development Manager, and was a key member of the team responsible for the exponential growth of our local government business from 2006 to 2008. After a short period away from Comensura, Jon returned in 2011 as a Director with a remit to develop our private sector customer portfolio and continue to win contracts with public sector customers.

Since 2011, Jon has been responsible for Comensura winning close to 100 contracts in both the private and public sector, enabling us to penetrate a number of new markets, such as Communications/Technology Infrastructure, Rail, Manufacturing, Waste Management, Business Services and Central Government. A critical part of this success has stemmed from Jon’s ability to evolve Comensura’s traditional systems based model into new models that are able to accommodate the needs of different customer verticals. This was achieved through firstly developing a detailed understanding of market conditions, specifics associated with market verticals / customer requirements and competitor activity, secondly successfully creating the business case for major systems changes, and lastly being part of the project team responsible for the implementation of new initiatives. 

Jon has also been responsible for managing customer consultancy projects and developing new products. This includes creating the business plan for our sister company Younifi. 

Before joining Comensura, Jon worked for a global recruitment brand as a recruiter of Accountancy and Finance staff at both senior and management levels. 

When not at work, Jon concentrates on family life, playing guitar and generally enjoying music, cooking and supporting his favourite football team.
