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, starting in the UK before spending time in Australia and currently he lives in New York city, where he is determined to preserve his accent and find a decent scone at precisely 4PM daily. With steady travel across the APAC region, don’t be surprised to see John at one of Meltwater’s events or catching up with his local team on the ground.


John has a passion for all things travel and sport, with a big soft spot for soccer (football?) like most Brits! Working across Asia has also given him the chance to further explore his third passion….food! Whether in Tokyo, Hong Kong or Singapore, there is no better part of the world to be a foodie!


Through his career with Meltwater, John has been tapped to open new offices in New Zealand and Australia, as well as South America, and holds a record for percentage of sales quota and revenue growth. Over the last 4 years, John has helped to more than double Meltwater’s Asia Pacific business, which continues to go from strength to strength!


John received a Bachelor of Arts degree in French and History from Canterbury Christ Church University and a Masters in Organisational Leadership from the Said Business School at Oxford University.
