Jason is Co-Founder and CEO of Handshakez and has spent the last 17 years leading sales & marketing teams for Jive Software, Siebel, TIBCO and Trilogy. Jason specializes in evangelizing new ideas within nascent markets. A true road warrior, with several million frequent flyer miles to prove it, Jason has served as a trusted business advisor to Fortune 500 executives on matters of customer retention and operating efficiencies. His dream is to replace Anthony Bourdain and resurrect “No Reservations.” Jason is one of the few Wharton graduates who prefer Entrepreneurship to Finance, which probably explains his love for Las Vegas.
