Executive Director, APAC
John Box is the Executive Director of Meltwater’s Asia Pacific (APAC) division. He oversees operations, client acquisition and client success, enterprise sales, and marketing for 12 offices across the region. John joined Meltwater in 2006 and has worked in sales management positions all over the globe. He’s well-known for pioneering and implementing new sales and management techniques to produce an unwavering success rate in revenue.
Originally from the UK, John has lived all over the world with Meltwater. Currently he lives in New York, where he is determined to preserve his accent and find a decent scone at precisely 4PM daily.
John has a passion for all things travel and sport, with a big soft spot for soccer (football?) like most Brits! He is especially excited when he can combine the two passions, as he did with a trip to South Africa for the World Cup in 2010. He is currently looking forward to heading to Brazil for the next World Cup in 2014.
Despite a significant downturn in the economy, John led his team to a 66% YOY revenue increase from 2011-2012. Through his career with Meltwater, John has been tapped to open new offices in New Zealand and Australia, and holds a record for percentage of sales quota and revenue.
John received a Bachelor of Arts degree in French and History from Canterbury Christ Church University and a Masters in Organizational Leadership from the Said Business School at Oxford University.
