Jason Jones Named Top 40 Under 40 By Commercial Integrator

Jason Jones Top 40 Under 40

CI 40 Under 40: Class of 2017

The 4th annual CI 40 Under 40: Class of 2017 features our youngest members ever and other AV systems integrators who’ve made major marks in the industry.

We hear often, and write even more often, about how AV systems integrators are looking for the next young superstar as their management team adds gray hair and thinks about life after the corner office.

The fourth annual CI 40 Influencers Under 40 list was never intended to be a recruiting tool for those companies to inject their workforce with rising stars, but we know it’s worked that way based on how we’ve watched several alumni from our previous lists continue their ascent even after being singled out by peers for their contributions to the industry.

We don’t know what the future holds for the members of the 2017 class, but we do know this year’s honorees include our youngest members ever — each of whom attended InfoComm 2017 in June — including one who is dreaming of the day he can earn his CTS certification.

As always, the 2017 CI 40 Under 40 is composed primarily of young, talented people nominated by someone else in the industry; either a co-worker, friend, former colleague or someone simply blown away by the accomplishments they saw or heard about. We rounded out the list with a few people we’ve previously written about, including one former CI cover boy and a few who’ve been profiled as part of our Back Stage Q&A profiles.

Several of this year’s honorees are teens, which should make employers excited that the word is getting out about AV systems integrators and why their jobs are worth considering as a career. We know that’s been a struggle for a lot of firms in recent years, but it’s nice to see offerings such as InfoComm’s ICIF grant program and the NSCA Ignite program bearing some fruit.

As usual, we squeezed in a few more than 40 honorees to this list and included a few people who have celebrated their 40th birthdays since last year’s installment. If you don’t see your nominee on the list this year, wait ’til next year, because we’ve already started the 2018 collection with those who just missed the cut this time around.

Jason Jones, 36 President, and CEO, S&L Integrated

Jason’s vision of expanding the business and attracting quality technical engineers and innovative management leaders has been successful and reflected by building a 20,000 square-foot facility, complete with a conference room that seats 24 at the table and another dozen in the planned seating around the room.The perimeter offices feature floor-to-ceiling glass, giving the workplace an open-air environment. Technicians all have computer work stations and work benches with several smaller huddle room meeting spaces for group meetings and video conferencing.
