Jonathan Cooper

Head of Group M&A

Jonathan grew up in Bristol, UK and after studying Mathematics at Exeter University moved to Surrey.  He trained as an accountant at BDO, starting in the audit department and subsequently made the move to Corporate Finance.  Jonathan’s experience includes advising on a range of industries from schools to energy comparison sites to Ukrainian wood chipping plants! Jonathan joined the International Schools Partnership (ISP) in April 2017 as Head of Group M&A.  At ISP, he is involved in assisting the Board on its acquisitions and getting deals completed to expand the exciting and ever-growing ISP family of schools around the world.

Jonathan finds the completion of an acquisition the most exciting and satisfying side of his job.  Although post-acquisition is when the hard work starts, integrating the new schools into the ISP structure.

Outside of work, Jonathan is a keen tennis player and tries to get on court at least once a week; he is also actively involved in the running of his local tennis club (the social events are the most fun side!).  He also enjoys watching most sports, particularly football and is a Chelsea FC fan.
