Previously he led the consumer business of Com Hem – the Swedish cable operator – through a significant turnaround from 2014 to 2016 after launching a successful IPO in 2014, one of the largest Nordic flotations in recent decades. Jon previously held senior roles at Virgin Media in the UK leading up to its sale to Liberty Global  and was previously COO of a UK pay-TV company.
