Jonathan Kendrick, co-founder, Chairman of the ROK Group of companies, a leading mobile technology, applications and services company and new-business incubator, is a highly successful serial entrepreneur.
Jonathan began his business career through securing the European rights to then-unknown Yokohama tyres brand (which, having successfully brought to market, he sold back to Yokohama).
Recognizing, early on, the enormous potential of the mobile industry, Jonathan founded the first incarnation of ROK to create the technology to simplify the process of pre-paid vouchers for mobile phones.
Jonathan sold ROK's electronic voucher technology to a leading mobile industry player in 2002 whilst retaining the ROK brand - which he re-launched with Co Founder with John Paul DeJoria.
ROK has pioneered many new technologies in the rapidly-evolving mobile phone space which it licenses to Mobile Operators and Handset Manufacturers worldwide, including high quality Mobile TV which can be streamed, live and on-demand, over mass-market 2.5G as well as 3G and Wi-Fi.
