Jason Majored in business management at the University of North Dakota, but always felt the "pull" of sales, and with his personality thought that world would be a natural fit. He started his career at TCF Bank as a bank lending manager and went on to an exciting career at Ameriquest Mortgage company, where he rose to the rank of divisional manager, setting numerous company and industry records.
After the mortgage industry crash in 2007, Jason sought a new career path and "stumbled" into executive placement. Recruiting was a natural fit for him as he had spent his previous career building and training high powered sales teams. He was named as vice president of investment banking search for Gemini Solutions, a Minneapolis firm, and is still close with his mentors, who were supportive when he opened his own firm in 2016.
Outside of his professional duties, Jason has previously been involved in animal charities and is active in his church. He's also the devoted husband and father of three children. In his spare time, Jason is dedicated to his weightlifting and fitness routine and was actually the 2004 National Drug Free Bench Press Champion of his age group.
