jon wilkinsThe co-founder of Naked Communications, Jon Wilkins has announced his resignation from the company and will leave at the end of the year.

Wilkins, the chairman of Naked Communications, founded the company with John Harlow and Will Collin in London in 2000 and moved to Australia to join Naked’s Sydney office in 2009. He was then based in New York from 2011 to 2013 and recently he relocated to his family home in London and has been on leave since.

“After 13 and a half years at Naked it feels like the right time to move on and explore new horizons.  I’ve put my heart and soul into Naked and leave with many amazing memories. The best part has been the chance to work with some of the most brilliant, creative and inspiring people in the industry,” said Wilkins.

“Naked means the world to me and will always do so. My decision to move on is made slightly easier in knowing that Naked is in great shape and in such good hands. Naked has embarked on a new chapter and I wish the team nothing but success for the future,” he said.

Naked co-founder Will Collin, who remains with Naked, said: “Jon will be missed by the Naked family and leaves with our unwavering support. The timing is right for him and I have no doubt that he will continue to do great things. I’m very excited about the road ahead. Never before have we had so much invested into our brand, attracting new clients, exceptional new talent and energizing our team.”

In September, the last remaining founder of the Australia arm of Naked Communications Adam Ferrier resigned. He is set to join CumminsRoss as its chief strategy officer.
