Chief Executive Officer

Jonathan Hoyle

MA (Hons)

Jonathan is Stanford Brown’s Chief Executive Officer.

The Australian Financial Association (AFA) has voted him as one of Australia’s Top 5 Financial Advisers.

Jonathan spent 15 years in the global financial markets on the London and New York bond trading floors of US investment bank, JPMorgan.

In 2006, he fulfilled a long standing dream to emigrate to Australia with his Gold Coast-born wife and two children.

He joined Stanford Brown in 2008 and become a Partner the following year. Jonathan chaired Stanford Brown’s Investment Committee until January 2015, when he became the firm’s Chief Executive Officer.

He is passionate about the importance of small business and entrepreneurship as the engine of Australia’s job creation and prosperity.

In the summer he can be found watching his son’s cricket matches in Wahroonga or at Manly surfing with his daughter; and in the winter, he plays an increasingly inept game of soccer for Manly Allambie Over-35s..

Best advice Jonathan was ever given….

Never give up. Ever | Listen to people | Smile | You can learn something from everyone.

Jonathan’s favourite pastime….

Playing my guitar. Really badly. Playing O35 soccer for Manly Allambie.

Quality Jonathan most admires in others….

The three qualities we seek in all staff at Stanford Brown are intelligence, integrity and drive. The rest can be taught. The quality that will best equip my children for life is tenacity.

Jonathan’s favourite book….

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

Qualities of leaders Jonathan admires….

Sir Alex Ferguson’s ability to inspire loyalty and motivate people to perform to the maximum of their potential.

Bill Winters – COO, JPMorgan and my first boss.  Bill was shy, highly intelligent, a poor speaker and nerdy, but he inspired passion in his troops and led by example. Proof that not all great leaders are tall, articulate and polished!


“My relationship with Jonathan is very one-on-one.  He’s a very approachable guy.  He understands the issues that I’m dealing with. That’s what I think has been good about my interaction with Stanford Brown because they listen.”
