Ron Jones (born 1948) is a British businessman and Executive Chairman of Tinopolis, one of the UK's largest television production companies.

Previously a partner in the accounting and consultancy firm Arthur Andersen, he was a founder of Tinopolis in 1990 and has led the company since that time. Jones took the Company public in 2005 and this led to a rapid expansion by acquisition, including a hostile takeover of the largest listed production company at that time, The Television Corporation PLC; in 2008 Jones and his management team bought the company back in partnership with Vitruvian Partners, a private equity company.

Jones is a former member of the Sports Council for Wales (now Sport Wales) and the Welsh Language Board, he was Treasurer of Glamorgan County Cricket Club for nine years, and is a director and former Chairman of Llanelli Scarlets, the leading rugby union club.
