Jonathan currently works in Product Management as director of AIRINC’s data products. In this capacity, he is always on the lookout for ways we can develop our data offerings—COLA, Housing, Hardship, Tax, Airfare, Transportation, and Publications—in alignment the evolving needs of global mobility, either through enhancing our current suite or adding new products to it. Jonathan joined AIRINC in 2006 as a cost-of-living surveyor, conducting 70 surveys in over 50 countries and loving nearly every minute of it (the food poisoning in Antananarivo being an exception). After two years, he moved on to analysis work around our COLA calculations, and then took over management of the global survey and research process in 2010. He received his B.A. in International Relations from Brown University and the Diploma of the International Program from IEP Paris (Sciences Po). In addition to English, Jonathan speaks French and German.
