He is also imbuing the 6Connex culture with a spirit of teamwork and collaboration, a skillset honed from leading teams in both Singapore and London at well-known organizations including ON24 and Virtue Broadcasting (now WorldTV). Jönsson will apply his industry knowledge and experience to drive further product innovation at 6Connex.
