John Padbury Appointed as Chief Operating Officer of Jonas Metals Software


[Oxford, 09/01/2023] – Jonas Metals Software, a leading provider of software solutions for the metals industry, is pleased to announce the appointment of John Padbury as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO). With over 30 years of experience in the metals industry, Padbury brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to his new role.


Padbury’s career in the metals industry began in the 1990s as a developer, where he quickly established himself as a specialist in the field. He then progressed into consultancy and project implementations, honing his skills and gaining valuable insights into the industry’s challenges and requirements. His dedication and commitment led him to leadership positions, including department manager and head of business at Metalogic UK.


In his new role as COO of Jonas Metals Software, Padbury will play a pivotal role in driving the company’s operational strategies and ensuring the delivery of high-quality software solutions to its clients. With his extensive experience, Padbury is well-equipped to lead the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the evolving needs of the metals industry.


Outside of his professional achievements, Padbury is a devoted family man, celebrating 30 years of marriage and raising two children who are also pursuing careers. In his leisure time, Padbury is an avid marathon runner, having completed several challenging races. He has a particular fondness for longer distance challenges, such as running the Hadrian’s Wall or the Pennine Way in the UK. However, his true joy comes from walking his dog, Monty, through the woods, regardless of the season.


“It is with great pride that we announce the appointment of John Padbury as our new Chief Operating Officer,” said Leigh Harrison, President at Jonas Metals Software. “His extensive experience in the metals industry and his proven track record of leadership make him the ideal candidate to drive our operational excellence and lead the delivery of innovative solutions. We look forward to working closely with John as we continue to provide cutting-edge technology to our valued clients.”
