About

JVBMETALS was launched in August 2013, collating free news and other developments related to the metals industry. Having started as a virtual news ‘ticker’ running c. 20 stories daily, its focus now is higher level news, people moves and jobs. I’m not a headhunter and share these purely for the benefit of industry colleagues, though feel free to contact me if I can help you in any way.

All updates are published via Twitter at @MetalsInsider. If you would like to place my content on your website, or are interested in developing social media for your company, please contact me: jvbmetals [at] outlook [dot] com or just tweet me.


About me, the individual

I’ve been a wearer of many hats, with experience in account management, business development, product management, content, corporate communications, sales, marketing, events and publishing. I co-founded an online publishing business from scratch and sold it to a global media giant six years later. While most of my experience has been gained in commodities markets, I am interested in all markets and trading. Also in the digital economy, publishing, politics, technology, new business/social trends.

As a picture is worth a thousand words, this Venn is how my experience hangs together:

I’m a news junkie who keeps his finger on the pulse; a keen Twitter user with six active accounts, a blogger, a contributor in online forums and speech radio addict. Happy working solo, or with and alongside others, in the office or from home. At work I am candid, entrepreneurial, client-focused, problem-solving, hands on, decisive, impatient, perfectionist, curious, pragmatic, collegial. I’m a rounded individual who doesn’t take himself too seriously.

I like getting things done and am happiest working in a small or start-up environment where stuff happens. I genuinely enjoy the occasional crisis, all hands to the pump, putting out the fire.

I am available for long- or short-term assignments, open to consulting or collaboration, and always interested in new ideas. Having been around the block, I may be able to help. Do get in touch if I can assist you in any way.
