I had the pleasure of working under Jon’s leadership at CIBI Information Inc, where he served as the Head of Sales. Jon is an exceptional team leader and mentor.

Jon’s ability to stay on top of things while managing a team is truly admirable. Despite his busy schedule, he always made time to address any concerns or issues within the team, ensuring that everyone felt heard and supported.

One of Jon’s greatest strengths is his support for his team’s growth. He empowers his team members by giving autonomy and trust, rather than micromanaging. Our weekly 1:1 calls were instrumental and effective in ensuring that tasks were progressing smoothly and any blockers were quickly addressed.

Beyond his role as a team leader, Jon is also a great life coach and mentor. During a period when I was facing challenges with my mental health and career path, Jon provided invaluable advice and support that I still carry with me today.

Jon is a remarkable leader who not only excels in his role but also genuinely cares for the well-being and growth of his team members. It was truly a privilege to work under his guidance.

I have worked with Jonathan for almost 2 years now and I have know him as someone who is very a dedicated team lead. Being in a startup set up, he never fail to guide us to work in an organized manner regardless if the nature of business or the job requirement is all relatively new to us.

He is very good at coaching and honing team members. He has a way with people – he can easily adapt in a group’s working environment. Most of the work engagement we’ve had together are all in sales, he’s impressive when it comes to handling clients – may it be gathering information, understanding client needs, providing possible solutions, negotiations and more importantly closing and locking a deals.

Working with Jonathan was golden. He allowed his people to grow, spread their wings, and not be afraid to take risks. He has been instrumental in shaping the professional careers of those who are fortunate to work with him. Always motivating, always looking how to push your boundaries, always giving. I miss the pep talks he always give. If there’s leader that tirelessly push you to do more, be more and who always sees the potential you haven’t seen yourself – Jonathan is that leader. More than being the boss, he listens and you make yourself heard. On top of this, he is a consumate leader and visionary that stays on top of his game.

Jon is that rare professional who possesses the traits of a leader, coach, and mentor. He exemplifies the first by always being on top of any situation, effectively providing guidance towards action. He then ensures that the interaction is a teaching moment for the team but tailor-fit based on the personality and experience of each member. And finally, he provides continuous motivation and role-modeling.

Jon was not just a boss to us but he was also a coach. He helped us become better versions of ourselves every time. He made sure that we did not just grow in our profession but he also made sure that we were mentally and physically able to face the challenges that come our way.

Jon is very passionate about what he does and this would show during team huddles and meetings. He would push and motivate everyone to be at their best at all times and to think on their feet.

Jonathan knows how to create the tempo for the team. We started our week right, and rallied towards the common goal. Mid-week we would check-in with him so that we can keep him up to date on the hot accounts we were working on.

One thing I really appreciated is his candor. He never hesitated to say it straight to sharpen each one of us in the team.

I would say I am quite privileged to have been mentored at one point by Jonathan.

“Mentor” is the word that comes to my mind when I think about Jonathan. I worked under his supervision and leadership. He was the General Manager of Oradian when I was in charge its operations (Finance, HR, Admin & Legal).

It is easy to connect and work with Jonathan! Not only he gives you great advises on daily basis, but he also understands your challenges and helps you to overcome complex issues by making them simple.

Jonathan is a great coach and makes you feel valued! He gives constructive feedbacks on your work and let you know when you do well.

He makes himself available for everyone, at any time! As a manager, Jonathan knows that his success is linked to the success of his team. Therefore, he spends time with you to understand your strengths and weaknesses then pushes you out of your comfort zone for you to develop your skills and succeed!

Aside from his managerial and interpersonal skills, Jonathan will be a great asset to any team as he will bring his experiences and knowledge acquired from various positions and industries. He is extremely detailed oriented and comfortable with any aspects of the organization.

I felt comfortable working with Jonathan. I learned a lot from him, and I believe that parts of my success and achievements are due to his mentor-ship.

I loved being part of his team and hopefully our paths will cross again!

I remember that specific day when Jon interviewed me in Kalibrr: His questions helped me to discover what I want to deliver to his team and how I want it to be delivered, he was able to help me discover my passion in learning and my grit to achieve my goals. He was more than my Manager, but my life mentor. I was able to move to another company where he is working because I believe in not choosing a company, but choosing where you can grow with your mentor.

I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to be managed by Jon. He was a dedicated leader and an inspiring mentor. I was able to grow as professional and an individual when I was directly reporting to him as our COO in 9Dot Strategies. My 2 years of working with him gave my career a lot of positive significant impact which I am thankful for. His ability to make the best business decisions at the right time and how the way he managed us always kept me in awe. And he always makes sure we are all healthy physically and mentally as well as our pipelines!

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Jon for over a year and a half at Kalibrr. Jon is a superb leader and coach who brings his team together while inspiring trust and motivation. He effectively problem solves and builds people up to provide the needed support in the face of challenges. He’s a strong people person, communicator and coordinator who can effectively facilitate cooperation toward common goals. His experience and consultative thinking allow him to strategically approach planning for goals. He leads from the front and isn’t afraid to delve deeper into a situation to gain a better perspective. His values and genuine care for people are certainly great positive influences to an organization.

Having him as our Head of country sales in the company brought us to more ups than downs – he is solely responsible for 80% of the company revenue since he handled the sales department.

Being one of the greatest motivators I have met, he is the “go to person” when conflicts arise. He looks out for his team but is not one to draw attention to himself deliberately – his work does that for him. He has built a reputation as someone who has a broad vision and this vision is what will take a company places.

Also, during the time that I was starting, he is clearly interested in helping me grow as an employee. When our team was scaling up, he opened up the opportunity for me to apply to a supervisory position since he knew I had the passion, drive and eagerness in leading a team towards success. He also knew I wanted to learn more about the high level side of sales on a business perspective. He also asked me to join our company’s management meetings with some of the key members of other departments so I could get more insight into their structure and goals of the whole company.

It is rare that you come across a manager like Jonathan who is more a mentor than a boss.

Jon is the type of mentor who brings out the best in you. He is someone who encourages, motivates, and inspires you to be more than what you think you are capable of. I am very lucky and blessed to have worked with a man who strikes that right balance between work and play. Jon looks out for you in a way that he ensures that you are on the path to becoming a well-rounded individual.

He was able to build a successful sales team from the ground up. From a small team of less than 10 to over 25, he was very hands-on with each and every one of our team members to ensure each person would succeed in meeting their targets. All this while conceptualizing and executing plans and goals for the sales team and the company as a whole.

Under his tutelage, one can learn so much as Jon has experience in the sales industry for over 20 years.

Not everyone gets the chance to work with a manager who is both a coach and a mentor so I am grateful to have found that with Jon. As a direct report to him under Sales, he consistently guided me into transitioning into my role as Senior Solutions Consultant for the company. As a leader, he not only provides feedback to his team but is very receptive to feedback. He is also very encouraging when it comes to his team sharing ideas and initiatives, and even grievances. He is clear about his expectations as a manager but never fails to empower his team members. With Jon, it was always about how he could help us through our challenges. I’m grateful to have worked with a leader who challenged me but also never made me feel that I could not ask for his support.

Jonathan was able to build a high-performing team from scratch. He has a very positive outlook in life, which is contagious, and he inspires enthusiasm in people with his words and actions. This makes him an incredible mentor, coach, and manager. I cannot count how many times he has motivated the people around him to be better versions of themselves.

He’s also a brilliant communicator. He has a way with words that only comes from his years of experience in Sales and Business, his dedication and focus to be better, and his genuine care for others. More than being able to communicate well with customers, he is able to easily share with his team the skills and knowledge he has.

I was personally mentored by Jon and it has been such a privilege to learn from him. Although we were more than 20 under his team, he took the time to get to know our individual personality traits to better connect with us professionally and to mentor us uniquely and effectively.
