John O’Neill

Head of Business Development

John started his career at the Guernsey Press after being offered a permanent photographers role while still at University. During his time working in the news industry he went from being a Junior photographer, a trusted Duty Photographer, Deputy Picture Editor and finally Image Editor and Head of Department.

This role meant John was deeply involved in all aspects of Island life and responsible not only for filling each edition of the paper with news and sport features but also arranging coverage of everything from Business appointments to Island Games Events and Royal Visits. He was also one of the first main judges for the International Guernsey Photographic Festival and remained onboard for a number of years.

He left the top photographic job at the newspaper after serving 12 years to set up his own business. Specialising in high end product and architectural photography, with the occasional PR feature, he found that he already knew all the major contacts needed to run a successful business. During this time he joined the B48 Club, a morning networking club, and held a place on the Council.

John was originally brought into Chamber to help before and during a maternity leave period covering all aspects of the Events and Communications role. Soon a new role was developed appointing him as the Head of Business Development. The role was set up with the objective of encouraging growth in sectors both on and off Island. Locating potential business deals by contacting potential partners; discovering, exploring and identifying business opportunities and to enhancing organisation reputation, defining long-term organisational strategic goals and building key customer relationships.

He plays in a local band and has appeared on ITV’s Studio Jam, enjoys growing, making wine, astronomy, science journals, MotoGP, walking, running and reading.
