Yorkshire born and Worcestershire bred John now has a wife and two daughters. He will watch pretty much any sport going when allowed and is often out and about on his road bike.

From leaving the University of Sheffield recruitment has dominated his career. After cutting his teeth in Birmingham with a financial recruitment consultancy he joined Toner Graham in 2006. Kelly bought Toner Graham in 2008. He has come up through the ranks and believes this gives him great insight. For John recruitment has been and will always be about the people, "What puts the colour into the world are all the different stories that lay at the heart of everyone. We love to tell those stories and connect people through them."
