Jonathan Sabol began his career as an engineer at General Motors before moving to Silicon Valley in the 1990s. His formative years were spent at Applied Materials during the tech boom, where he became general manager of the services division before running off to chase start-up dreams.
Jon’s background includes holding full P&L for a $750M operation, leading a matrixed organization of over 2,000 team members, and setting/executing the strategic plans for key initiatives (product development, new market penetration, operational growth). The common theme throughout his career is a combination of strategic development and tactical delivery; whether guiding a start-up or directing a large operation, his focus is always the alignment of a visionary outlook with specific, appropriate actions that work best in each unique market.
You can usually find Jon cycling through the Santa Cruz Mountains, cross country skiing in the Sierras, or seeing live music in San Francisco during his free time. If he’s not there, look in the kitchen where he is most likely cooking vegetable centric meals for his family and continuous stream of house guests.
