Hi, I'm Jon. I was born and raised in Cardiff, Wales and my first full-time job consisted of putting the ball in the back of the soccer net and winning games.
After a shorter than expected playing career, I turned my attention to coaching and developing youth players of varying ages and abilities. When the USA came knocking in the late 90’s, I walked through that door and I have been here ever since.
Coaching soccer gave me the opportunity to work in over 20 states, but it was a 12-week contract in Buffalo, NY that would change my life forever.
12 weeks turned into 4 years because, that’s right, you guessed it… I met my future Wife. After experiencing my first Buffalo winter, it took me the next 3.5 years to convince Filippa to relocate.
We are now coming up on our 15 year anniversary (2018) and have two wonderful boys Shaun, 10 and Gavin 7 and we have been living in Wake Forest NC since 2005.
It is here where I made Sales my new sport and with my competitive nature and desire to be the best… it came naturally. Over the last 13 years, I have worked in both the Telecom and SaaS world. I have held various leadership positions and I started my own company called REVGEN in 2014 that was focused on training and developing Sales reps.
I became part of the Zig Zibit family in May 2018 and I couldn’t be happier. I attended my first trade-show in 2008 and I was hooked. The energy was amazing, but it was the eye-catching exhibits that grabbed my attention. They were an extension of each company. The bright lights, amazing colors, built-in screens and numerous custom options. Each one told a story and I immediately saw the statement that these design masterpieces could make.
Now I get to provide such masterpieces to our wonderful clients across the country. We are a customer-centric company and we look forward to serving you.
