Jon O'Donnell

After a long and successful career in the publishing sector, Jon recently founded Viral Tribe, a partnerships hub that connects brands to talent. Working with stars across the sports and entertainment sector such as Rob Brydon and Lewis Capaldi, Viral Tribe creates irresistibly shareable content distributed through social and beyond.

Prior to this Jon spent over 25 years in newsbrands holding a number of key roles at the likes of The Guardian, and DMG. Jon was most recently Managing Director of ESI Media where he was responsible for the award winning commercial fortunes of both the Independent and the Evening Standard.
Beyond media Jon is proud of his career as a failed actor and rave DJ, and occasional average ironman.
