WHO WE ARE | Our Team
Driven By: truth, clarity, results, impact
Mantras: Clarity creates impact. | "Kind Of" will kill you.
Jason has been helping growth-oriented companies achieve desired financial and operational results for over 20 years. With an educational background in Finance and Accounting, and as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Jason has held leadership positions as CFO/COO for entrepreneurial companies in the real estate, professional services, and manufacturing industries.
While relentlessly focused on execution, Jason is also a visionary and entrepreneur who has founded/co-founded several successful businesses of his own including a coworking space in downtown Winston-Salem, NC, a fractional CFO firm, and a not-for-profit youth basketball organization whose mission is to connect students across geographic, cultural, racial, social, and economic barriers through the sport of basketball.
When Jason is not helping his clients navigate the raging rapids of business, he enjoys being in or near any moving water – particularly crystal-clear mountain rivers with lots of whitewater. He also enjoys hiking, playing the ukulele, reading, writing, hanging out with his family, and public speaking where he often shares about his life-changing battle with Guillain-Barre Syndrome in 2012.
Driven By: people, bringing order to chaos, team health
Mantras: Structure frees creativity. | Business is personal.
