Jonas Software - Arthur Morris

Arthur Morris

Portfolio Manager, Jonas UK & Europe

A graduate of Sports & Exercise Science, Arthur joined the software industry as a training & support agent for a small family-owned business that was dominating the UK Leisure market in the 90’s. He progressed by fulfilling many of the disciplines you find in software companies as well as founding two of his own; selling one and losing the other. He has also survived and flourished through three acquisitions and gathered the accolades and scars of learning and leading in small and large software organisations.
Arthur joined Jonas when the group acquired UK AIM, listed as Gladstone PLC, in 2010. He was promoted to Managing Director of Gladstone Health & Leisure in 2013 before becoming a Portfolio Manager, overseeing the growth and development of a number of our companies. Today, Arthur splits his time between supporting the leaders of businesses operating in the Leisure, Events and Retail verticals and building relationships with company owners and leaders who want to explore the opportunity of joining our growing family.
In 2018 Arthur joined the advisory boards of the ODI OpenActive initiative (openactive.io) and UK Actives’ Active Labs programme (activelab.co) to help facilitate the acceleration of innovation in the FIT-TECH sector. Somehow he also finds time coach and manage local grassroots football!
