Jon has worked for many large and small companies in diverse industries throughout his 30+ years as an Information Technology professional. Jon founded, grew and sold a successful Systems Integration business through the help of SCORE in the late 1990's.
Since liquidating his own local business, his professional career grew in scope and responsibility as he worked at large Fortune 500 companies including: The Gillette Company, Proctor & Gamble and National Grid. Jon recently wrapped up his full-time career as a Vice-President at TJX leading their Global Information Management and Analytics Architecture practice with a multi-million dollar annual budget.
Jon has the technical skills and experience to recognize when technology solutions can help solve business challenges - but in most cases, applying the latest technology does not fully solve those challenges. It's Jon's varied business experience that allows him to help clients solve their challenges by helping examine the organization's people, process and technology - and this is where businesses can get the biggest return on their investments to grow their business.
Jon believes that the success that he has had throughout his career affords him the ability to give back - and what better organization to volunteer his time but give back to SCORE - the organization which helped Jon build and grow a business back in the 90's. Jon looks forward to mentoring and helping build businesses - and hopes to have some fun along the journey!
