Jonny Jacobs (Scotland)
Jonny is the Head of Supply Chain Finance at pladis UK & Ireland. He has been involved in some of the world’s best-known brands over the breadth of his career, including Heineken, Diageo and McVitie’s owner United Biscuits (now part of pladis).
He is also a Trustee and Treasurer of Aspire, a UK charity that offers support and practical assistance to people paralysed by spinal cord injuries.
Jonny’s leadership and business acumen were highlighted during the aftermath of the flood at McVitie’s Carlisle biscuit factory in late 2015. At the time, he was pladis’ Financial Controller for UK Supply and was a key part of the crisis management team, responsible for what became the UK’s largest insurance claim of its kind in 2016.
Jonny was recently announced as the winner of the 2017 ICAS One Young CA and 35 CAs under 35 competition.
