Yep, that's his name on the wall...Passionate, proud, excitable. There are many ways to describe Scott but rest assured there's never a dull moment when he's around.

Dad of 4 boys, runner, cyclist, snowboarder and not a bad barista!
Jon is our brand and culture guru who was a lifelong tea drinker, until (in his own words) he "fell head over heels in love with our flat white".

An obsessive fitness fanatic; regularly spotted on a spin bike, lifting weights or doing both at the same time!
