John Pettigrew (he/him) is a recovering editor and Founder and CEO at We Are Futureproofs, a cloud platform that enables book teams to proofread on-screen effectively for the first time. Futureproofs arose from John's frustration with the tools and workflows that were available to his team, a frustration that led to a business that aims to make all editors' lives better! John wears a hat and spends time on Twitter as @John_Pettigrew.
