Having broken free from his background in coding and technology, Jon Block is now the acceptable face of geek at ITV.
With his degree in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University and the Royal Television Society’s Young Technologist of the Year Award, Jon was destined for a career in some back room, hidden away from the public. However, he now works in multi-platform product strategy and development, leading ITV’s commercial innovation programme. This means everything from creating new interactive ad formats and dual-screen concepts to speaking publicly about the exciting opportunities where TV and online converge.
He also likes to write his own biography in the third person, which is, frankly, a bit odd.
