WHY THE AWARDS COMMITTEE SELECTED HIS NOMINATION

As CEO of Berkeley Payments, Jonathon has taken proactive and very deliberate steps to hire and promote females across his organization and has created an incredibly supportive workplace for women. Ensuring equal gender representation across the organization and appointing an executive team that is 50% female, Jonathon has gone to great lengths to provide stretch opportunities and to actively sponsor the advancement of women into leadership roles. His nominators spoke of the care and attention he shows all of his employees, describing him as a leader not driven by ego but by his desire to showcase the work of his team, and allowing their talents to flourish. A champion for equality, whose advocacy for woman is reflected in the team he has built, the committee selected Jonathon as our first male recipient of a Women in Payments award.
