Jon came up with the idea for SpaceThreeTwo during the dark days of the first lockdown. His way of keeping sane was to imagine how the pandemic might change things for the better. He recognised that working preferences had changed for good and wanted to find a new sustainable solution that delivered the improvements in work/life balance everyone wanted, but worked for businesses and the environment too.
He is a successful start-up CEO, having built the pioneering recruitment business Pod Talent. That business became the first Hybrid Office provider, switching to 3 days in the office and moving another business in on the other 2 days. From there SpaceThreeTwo was born!
Since the pandemic, Rich spent most of his early career in the hospitality industry, running events and working in commercial roles for some of the world’s leading hotel companies.
There is only so much luxury travel anyone can handle, so in 2014 he set up a recruitment and consultancy business within the sector. Richard has been working alongside Jon in the creation of SpaceThreeTwo. The experience of customer service gained from the hotel world coupled with the commercial drive from recruitment is the perfect hybrid for driving the growth of SpaceThreeTwo.
Oh and when he has time, he runs marathons for his Brazilian charity.
Keith is an experienced Chairman and Non-Executive Director in private and public technology companies and has spent more than 20 years as a hands-on CEO, including licensing and selling into more than 60 countries.

After first meeting Jon at a rugby match in Twickenham back in 2014 (England 13 : Ireland 10, in case you’re interested), 2021 was the year they agreed to launch SpaceThreeTwo.
