International Northumbria alumnus and tech investor offers advice to business students

A US-based entrepreneur and start-up investor has returned to Northumbria almost 30 years after studying at the University, to meet current students and share his experiences in business. Chris Jones studied business accounting at Northumbria in 1989 as part of an exchange programme set up with the College of New Jersey in the US. He went on to become co-founder and Chief Financial Officer of Durante Rentals, a business specialising in construction equipment. The company has more than 105 employees, and bases throughout New York, Connecticut and New Jersey.
