Jon is the president and chief executive officer of the Greater Reading (Pennsylvania) Economic Partnership. Since its launch in 2004, GREP has facilitated 154 economic development projects and attracted, retained, or grown more than 12,000 jobs in Berks County. At K he majored in political science and studied abroad in Sierra Leone. His post graduation career included jobs in the insurance industry and for a mental health association. Those were followed by a long tenure at Time Warner Cable Inc. That career took him many places, including Reading, which he and his family made home. He hopes to increase the number of development projects and jobs created through GREP initiatives.
