Jonathan Worthing

Job Title: Distribution and Purchasing Manager

Date joined Jack Roe: 7th July, 1986 when he was taken on as a Packing Assistant

Jonathan almost didn’t get to his interview. As he arrived at the Jack Roe offices he lost control of his motorcycle and was catapulted down the garden.

Jonathan began as packing assistant and progressed in time to Stores Manager.

He became a regular face around UK cinemas installing and servicing projection equipment.
He qualified as a Dolby Engineer in 1999.

Jonathan has been a regular at CineEurope since the very first show in Brussels.

When Jack Roe took over Cinemeccanica in the US in 2003, Jonathan and Dave Bevilaqua drove a truck full of Cinemeccanica parts from California to Jack Roe’s Nashville office. The journey took three days!

Jonathan is now responsible for purchases of IT equipment and overseas set up of equipment.
