Jon is an outstanding individual I have known for over 20 years. Jon and I were the Consulting Managers responsible for software development, sales support, customer support, help desk management, and consultant supervision and development for DCS Software and Service, Inc. in North Texas. Three years running DCS was ranked in the top 500, Inc. 5000 fastest growing privately owned companies. Effectively managing the fast growth of the company required Jon’s technical skills in Project Management, Service Management, System Governance, IBM Midrange Systems (AS/400, i-Series), LAN WAN implantation, Programming, CASE Tools, and desktop systems. Jointly managing a fast paced consulting office required a partnership based on respect and communication, I could always depend on Jon’s best effort.
