Jonathan studied Geography at Cambridge University where he was President of Fitzwilliam College undergraduate association before qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 1994. Following the untimely death of his brother in 1995 and his mother in 1998, Jon founded MuchLoved in order to help others with their own grief. He remains as passionate as ever about the service and is always looking to devote time and energy to help forge and shape its development as it continues to grow from year to year.
Andrew loves invention and was responsible for the initial transition of an idea kept within a head down onto a phenomenal number of A3 sheets of paper and then finally through to programming code. It is his support of the MuchLoved ideals, his attention to detail and long-term vision which has ensured that the MuchLoved service has received such amazing feedback from users over the years. We are delighted that Andrew has agreed to act as one of our MuchLoved Trustees.
Jonathan became involved with MuchLoved as a long term friend of the founder and also as someone who has lost a brother unexpectedly at a young age. As Managing Director of a successful UK manufacturing Company, he brings substantial commercial skills and understanding to the organisation.
