John Elliott (born in 1943) is the chairman and founder of the leading bottled watercoolers and domestic dehumidifiers manufacturer Ebac Group.
A draftsman by trade, Elliott became self-employed in the early 1970s and won a contract to produce industrial dehumidifiers for a national construction group, leading to the foundation of the Ebac Group in 1973. By 1979 the company reached its first £1 million turn-over.
