As a fifth generation Warburton, Jonathan assumed control of the family business in 1991 - alongside his cousins Brett and Ross - before becoming chairman in 2001.
During this time, he has overseen the company’s transition from a northern bakery to a household name brand, with growth of over 60%, turnover rising above £500m and the number of bakery and distribution sites growing by more than 40%.
Perhaps surprisingly, Jonathan didn’t begin his career in the family business. Unilever was where he gained knowledge of the baking industry, as well as valuable sales and marketing experience that he would later use to develop Warburtons now iconic TV ad campaigns; featuring Sylvester Stallone, Peter Kay and The Muppets.
Today, Jonathan is one of the UK’s most recognised business leaders and Warburtons employ over 4,500 people in a business that has people, quality, culture and traditional values at its heart.
