Uccello Marketing’s founding Director; Jonathan Billington’s involvement with the company began while watching his father-in-law and Uccello Kettle inventor Andy De Petra make tea.
Andy had developed a simple solution to pouring hot water after experiencing excessive pain and weakness from his arthritic wrists. The ever-alert Jonathon’s creative mind began wondering how others could benefit from the method and the rest is history.
Jonathon’s entrepreneurial career has extended across the world includes widespread experience in the fields of commercial product development and sales, executive management and business development.
His pivotal role in developing Uccello as a solution for restricted hand, wrist and arm mobility due to age or illness has brought independence and happiness to customers world-wide.
