"My goal is to positively impact everyone I encounter."

I'm a husband to Jill, a dad to Gracie, Cooper, and Lucy, and an unintentional serial entrepreneur. I founded and led one of KC’s leading IT Support companies (The Purple Guys), regularly recognized on the Inc. 5000 list, the Corporate Report’s Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies, a Best Place to Work, and being one of the KC Chamber Top 10 Small Businesses of the Year. Before that I founded and grew an IT Staffing firm, growing from $0 to $10M in revenue in just 4 years, being recognized as Kansas City’s Fastest Growing Company. I'm passionate about leadership and businesses that impact their community. From experience, I also understand the issues of an owner/CEO. I'm an entrepreneur who likes to empower others to grow their business, become more efficient in all they do, and enrich their storyline. I have been a member of the Acumen Community since its inception.

More About Jon

Why Jon Joined Acumen.

"I have been blessed with business success and I did not accomplish that alone. I've been actively involved in a CEO peer group for over 25 years. I'm excited to use that experience and help others achieve their potential."

Challenges Jon is seeing CEOs facing today.

"Not a new challenge but an ever-evolving one. Business is easy, people are hard."

"Also not a new challenge but as the craziness in the world seems to accelerate, maintaining a solid culture is increasingly difficult, especially with the new distributed workforce." 

On a personal note...

How I recharge for the day.

Get up early, work out and pray. Bible study and journal. Eat a high-protein breakfast. This launches my day, 5 days a week. Weekends vary. Also, 8+ hours of sleep on average. Naps are my friend!

Words that describe me best.


Favorite activity after work.

Family dinners and games with family and friends.

Acumen is an exclusive community of CEOs & Owners focused on helping you grow your top line, optimize your bottom line and enrich your storyline.
Our affinity-centric approach creates a community that’s both an advisory board and a peer mastermind. In combining the best of both, Acumen unifies professionals whose businesses are in similar seasons and have similar characteristics, like revenue, employees, locations, competency, and demographic similarities.


Our commitment...

We develop healthy, growing businesses.
NOT a hospice or lifeline for a sinking ship.
We work on CEO/Business Owner issues.
NOT networking or small group study.
We are humble and teachable.
NOT for the “know it all” or
the person who has “all the answers.”
We share values, virtues & beliefs.
NOT for people whose walk
and talk lack significant alignment.
