General Manager, UK & Ireland, Circle
Jack started his interest in entrepreneurship early. By the age of 18, Jack had built a huge online community of over 20k users, offering free hosting solution for young web developers - something unheard of at the time. After graduating with first class honours in Management at Warwick Business School, he started his career in the prestigious graduate leadership scheme at Argos.
Jack’s next challenge was at Hotels.com, where he led the EMEA merchandising team pioneering new, data-driven promotions and campaigns across EMEA (including the Black Friday campaign), growing revenue across the markets by 50%.
Starting at Circle in March 2016, a disruptive blockchain company on a mission to change the way money works, Jack was brought on board to lead the hugely successful launch of the Pay app in the UK, followed by Spain and Ireland.
Whilst continuing to lead the UK and Ireland, Jack holds a 360 view of all operations of Circle in Europe. He is a spokesperson for the company on marketing, cryptocurrency and blockchain
matters, as well as responsible for the coordination of all marketing and business development activities, leading the European team on best practice and overall positioning of the product.
