Jonathan Crosland

Principal Consultant

Jonathan’s procurement journey began outside of the field, as an IT Project Manager, where he worked closely with prominent IT hardware providers, sparking his interest in negotiation and supply chain management. It wasn’t until he joined LV= in Bournemouth, however, that Jonathan gained experience negotiating with heavyweight consultancies, the “Big 4,” and the importance of driving specificity and contract management during times of significant change.

Jonathan then took a turn into the Defence sector, managing Professional Services, HR, Fleet, and other areas before returning to Financial Services. In this capacity, he simplified recruitment spend, delivered savings across the HR and Finance departments, and led the adoption of Procurement Practices.

Jonathan has a BA in Business Studies with Economics and Enterprise, along with CIPS and Project Management qualifications. He thrives on collaborating with stakeholders to deliver tangible value.

Outside of work, Jonathan volunteers at a local Cub Pack and serves as a Finance and Planning Governor at his son’s school. He is passionate about outdoor adventurous activities and lends his time at the school’s Forest School program.
