Honored by the World Economic Forum as a Young Global Leader, David Jones is an industry visionary, proponent of corporate responsibility and social change and The Guardian’s 2013 Sustainable Business Leader.
He was the youngest global CEO in the history of advertising, heading both Havas and Havas Worldwide, and the only British CEO of a French publicly traded company.
David was one of the founding members of the Facebook Client Council and is the only person to have both advised Facebook and run a publicly traded communications group. He was inducted into the American Advertising Federation’s Hall of Achievement in 2005, and was voted one of the two top executives of the decade by readers of Adweek.
He is the founder of One Young World (described by CNN as the “Young Davos”), a nonprofit organization that provides brilliant young people with a global platform through which to effect positive change, and was the driving force behind Kofi Annan’s TckTckTck Campaign for Climate Justice. He also worked closely with David Cameron and the UK Conservative Party from 2007 up to and including Cameron’s election as prime minister in 2010.
David is the creator of the Social Business Idea and author of best-selling book Who Cares Wins: Why Good Business Is Better Business, published in 2011 by Pearson/FT Publishing.
Recently, David raised $350MM to launch “You & Mr Jones“, the world’s first Brandtech group, to bridge the gap between brands and technology.
