Jonathan Abelson

Managing DirectorSpecialising in Finance & Audit

I'm a co-founder of MERJE and responsible for the implementation and execution of its overarching business strategy, goals and ambitious growth plan. I also take pride in placing senior finance professionals across the Property sector.

I'm a dedicated husband and father to four kids, as well as two rambunctious dogs who frequently wreak havoc in the Manchester office. I'm a passionate and vocal supporter of Manchester City. My other interests include attending the gym (but going easy on the exercise), holidays and dining at some of Manchester's finest restaurants.


My proudest achievement is seeing where MERJE has got to since we incorporated the business in 2011. We have expanded from two brothers and a friend working out of small, dingy offices to building our own purpose-built headquarters, employing 40+ staff members and achieving an annual turnover in excess of £10m.

Loves & Loathes

I love my family, food, holidays, Man City and, since lockdown, has enjoyed relaxing on the golf course.

I loathe gin, personal training, diets and tomato ketchup.
