Jonathan will be a Google leader for agency relationships in UK, but it looks like the employee was also interviewed for a role at Channel 4 Radio as BrandRepublic reported.
"Mark Howe, managing director for sales at Google UK, said: "Jonathan is one of a series of senior hirings we are due to make over the following few months. We are actively looking to build our relationships with the agency community, something we have not had the opportunity to focus on recently, but is certainly one of our main priorities now," according to the same source.
