Jonathan Roberts

Senior Director


Jon Roberts is a Senior Director at Luminary Labs. He partners with a range of public and private organizations, bringing incisive strategic thought and evidence-based insights to thorny problems that matter.

Before joining Luminary Labs, Jon led boutique consulting teams in Boston and New York. As a trusted advisor to leaders in agriculture, financial services, and health, Jon has helped build digital business units, redefine brand identities, and democratize value delivery. He also worked on strategy teams at UBS Wealth Management Americas and with the Clinton Health Access Initiative in sub-Saharan Africa.

Jon has a particular passion for helping people reach and push past their potential. He is proud to have coached clients to become change agents, and is equally proud to have mentored dozens of colleagues on their way to successful careers. This passion extends to Jon’s role as a co-founder and co-chair of the Bowery Mission’s Associate Board, a group of emerging leaders serving New Yorkers experiencing homelessness and hunger.

Jon holds an A.B. in Government from Harvard University. He sporadically unretires from an erstwhile operatic career; this is encouraged by the Choral Society of Grace Church in New York and usually tolerated by his wife, dog, and Washington Heights neighbors.
