Jos is a partner at Notion; he co-founded the firm in 2009 and sits on the board of Concentra within Notion’s portfolio. Jos focuses on the Media & Marketing and Communication & Collaboration sectors.
Jos has co-founded three businesses (RBR Networks, Star and MessageLabs) turning them all into market leaders each with revenues in excess of $100M and a combined value creation of nearly $1B. Star was founded in 1995 as one of the UK’s first ISP’s and MessageLabs in 2000 as the first company in the world to deliver anti-virus and anti-spam in the cloud. Jos served as Chief Marketing Officer at each of these companies. In 2002 Jos moved to New York to lead MessageLabs expansion into the US market.
In 2008 MessageLabs was acquired by Symantec for $700M and, at this time, Jos stepped down from the board to devote his time to Notion Capital. Jos is a well-known entrepreneur and marketer in the UK and the US. He has spoken at numerous industry events including The Entrepreneurs Summit and the LBS Entrepreneurs Speaker Series and appeared on both TV and radio including BBC, CNBC, NBC and ITV on subjects that range from cloud computing to marketing and brand strategies through to being an entrepreneurs turned investor and building a business in the US.
Jos received a BA honours degree in English Literature from London University and divides his time between New York and London.
