He knew his call to business ownership was to be more than projects and profits. It meant building a business that empowered people. It meant running an organization using Biblical principles, and it meant never hiding from the light, but rather carrying it forward. He poured his heart into developing and growing a business that has not only been successful, but is respected within the industry and community. Under his purpose minded leadership, Jon inspires his team to be leaders of light to every person and market they serve. He holds his team to the high standards of stewardship and excellence that remain guiding principles in all they do.
