Welcome, Jonathan! 

We’re delighted to announce a significant new member of our client facing team – Jonathan Watkins, who has joined us as a Business Development Manager.

Jonathan joins Blackdot straight from an outstanding 15 year career in UK government service, first at DSTL and then at the Ministry of Defence and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (on secondment). A Computer Science graduate, Jonathan has a strong background in technology, in particular cyber threat capability. Jonathan’s last role prior to joining Blackdot was as Deputy Head of International Liaison where he worked extensively with foreign government officials in securing their countries’ assistance to meet UK government security and intelligence requirements. Jonathan will take the lead in developing new relationships for Blackdot in these and other international organisations.

Jonathan is based in our London office and welcomes enquiries from interested parties, particularly from old friends and colleagues in foreign government agencies and corporations. He can be contacted using the contact us button at the top of the page.
