Jon works with ambitious leaders to position their organizations to succeed and increase their valuation multiple in a remote/hybrid world. He brings his experience in transformation, strategy, value-enhancement and innovation to companies looking to excel. He has been a management consultant, an operational executive, a board member, and trusted advisor to prominent leaders in the United States, Canada, South Africa & other EMEA countries. His experience covers multiple sectors including software, biotechnology, cloud computing, healthcare, telecommunication, public sector, education & technology.
Jon has been an instrumental part of our organizations strategic planning. He inspires deeper thought and rationalization and has the experience to communicate often complex ideas into simple logical examples and visual stories. A true talent. Before starting with us he knew little about our industry and was able to rapidly get up to speed and understand the key opportunities, constraints and players. He provided insights from the leadership team to support strategic leadership planning and direction as well as key research and data helping us make better decisions about our market. Challenging us on many fronts, and personally working with me to help sharpen my leadership of the business, he is motivating to work with. Focussing on new areas of our business was crucial to our growth, without Jon and the time he spent with us we would not have improved these areas which are now worth millions of recurring dollars. I would highly recommend him to any organization looking to reset or reaffirm their strategy and take themselves to their next level of growth.
