John Baumback

Group Managing Director

John joined Seetec in 1984 as a YTS trainee studying COBOL Programming, the leading business language of the day. Following his traineeship, for the next six years he taught programming and a number of IT disciplines to hundreds of local trainees. Seeing firsthand the impact that learning and development has on individuals’ life chances has been a strong influencing factor across the rest of his career

Since 2015, as Managing Director John has led on a number of significant transformational changes to the business.  He oversaw the transfer of Kent Surrey and Sussex CRC into the private sector, quickly establishing it as one of the leading Community Rehabilitation Companies in the UK.  More recently John managed the acquisition of Outsource, and led both the high profile takeover of new probation service areas in the South West and Wales and the strategic merger with The Pluss Organisation Community Interest Company.

The breadth and depth of John’s knowledge across all areas of the business gained through his 35 years tenure has enabled him to form and develop an experienced and diverse senior team that are committed to Seetec’s culture, values and delivering its strategic vision.
