Managing Director, Knickerbockerglory
Jonathan is the founder and MD of Knickerbockerglory – a multi-award winning independent production company launched in 2011, making shows including GPs Behind Closed Doors, The Gypsies Next Door and The Great Model Railway Challenge.
In 2017, Knickerbockerglory was proud to be voted the best place to work in TV by Broadcast Magazine, and have remained in the top four every year since. Knickerbockerglory was set up as a profit-sharing company, meaning earnings from shows they produce are shared between staff and freelancers (based on length of service that year), whether they are a runner or a director. Every year, a percentage of profits are also donated to a charity chosen by the production teams.
When he established the company, Jonathan was keen that the Knickerbockerglory office should feel like a second home to the people who work there – so children are welcome to visit, there is vocal support for people who require flexible working hours or job-shares and the company work with Key4Life to help employ former prisoners from marginalised backgrounds.
