Jason is a pilot, serial entrepreneur, author, and perpetual sponge for knowledge. He has founded countless successful offline and online companies since 1991.
His internet commerce experience began in 1997 when he launched one of the first paid online directory sites focused on the professional speaker and related services segment. He has launched multiple web businesses marketing to both B2C and B2B markets including: magazine subscriptions, consumer products, motor pool software, GPS vehicle tracking, digital e-books, affiliate sites, shopping comparison engines, digital software downloads, pay-for-performance lead generation marketing, database-driven custom web applications (software as a service) used by Fortune 50 companies, and several other internet marketing endeavors.
In addition to his vast entrepreneurial experience, Jason served 11 years with Cingular/AT&T in various regional and national roles as a Director of Sales, Operations, and Director of Portfolio Strategy. He was frequently tapped for relocation to new regions and functional silos as an in-house "hired gun" turn-around expert. Some of his largest assignments were to develop the company's five-year national sales distribution strategy, oversee its retail operations for over 1100 stores and 850 kiosk locations, and he ultimately served as Chief of Staff/C.O.O. of the company's largest operating market with an annual budget of nearly $2 billion.
A forever self-proclaimed start-up junkie, he went on to co-found an online e-tailer with a catalog of 1.865 million SKUs to market in a low-touch business model leveraging proven drop ship, just-in-time inventory methods employed by Amazon.com, Target.com, and Walmart.com. As CEO and chief software architect, he achieved a rank of 272 on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest growing privately held companies in the U.S. He has since sold that company to a publicly traded manufacturer of consumer goods.
