Sir Clive Jones

Sir Clive Jones has wide experience of journalism, broadcasting and as a champion of humanitarian causes.

He began his career as a newspaper journalist before moving into broadcasting where he held a series of top executive and board roles in Britain’s commercial TV sector.

He received a knighthood from Britain’s Queen Elizabeth in 2019 for his work as chair of Britain's Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) which brings together 14 leading UK aid agencies to raise money at times of humanitarian crises in poorer countries.

The official citation for his award said that, over the course of his tenure (2011-2018), the DEC launched 10 emergency fundraising appeals and raised approximately £500 million from the British public to help victims of natural disasters, conflict and outbreak of disease.
