CEO - Founder
Jason has 25 years of experience in the natural product industry and has held virtually every sales position possible. He worked with some of the biggest names in the natural and organic market, such as New Chapter Organics, Barlean's Organic Oils, Penta water, Gaia Herbs, and Organix South to name a few. Jason spent 10 years in the US Army, the experience and training in leadership during that time has served him well as he progressed through the ranks in the Natural Product Industry.
During his military service he became familiar with warehousing and supply procedures, both in garrison and in the field during combat. This has given him a keen insight into the operational side of the industry as well as a unique view of what is possible no matter how difficult the challenge. He was honorably discharged from the Army for a service related disability which led him to the natural product industry in the mid-nineties.
Jason is committed to building the infrastructure in both the sales and operational systems needed to support and maintain rapid growth. He is an expert in natural product sales and marketing. In his off time he loves to cook, fish and just hang out with his grandchildren and Tena (his wife of over 30 years).
