John Pontin 

John Pontin was born and brought up in Bristol, growing up in Southville as the son of a postman. John is an entrepreneur, property developer and a true champion of sustainable development.   John started the JT Group in 1961 which, over forty years, has developed a national profile, in particular for green issues in construction and mixed-use urban renewal.  

He was among the prime movers in rescuing the Bristol docks from near-dereliction and has played a significant role in progressing one of the UK's most difficult waterfront regeneration programmes. John has been involved in many more projects in Bristol, including restoring Bush House (Arnolfini), restoring Leigh Court and conserving E and W Sheds on the harbourside to house the Watershed Arts Trust. Without John's vision Bristol's Harbourside would look very different today. 

John has initiated and been involved in a large number of charitable causes, using his business and financial skills to look after those less fortunate and to promote a sustainable future both here and overseas, particularly in India. JT Group has established a not-for-profit company called Under the Sky which, under John's chairmanship, is working in partnership with public bodies and charities to restore or create places in which local businesses and community enterprises can thrive. 

John's passion is continued in his charity, of which he is co-founder, The Converging World, bringing communities together through contraction, convergence and renewable energy. John has also been a Trustee and Chairman for The Dartington Hall Trust for 13 years, a charity with a significant community involvement principally in the South West.  

A keen supporter of The Royall Wealth Club, John attended our launch event on 20th October and will be our keynote speaker for our next event on 23rd Janurary, where we explore how we can change our world by changing the way we invest. He had this to say: “This was an Excellent event, there was a real energy in the room and excellent contributions from all four speakers”.


We are proud to be recognised as a What's Right Trusted Partner, blending business with charity and social responsibility.
