Richard Jones' Summary

I like bold ideas and progressive thinking on how to grow our business. I prefer to work with the decision makers and bring great ideas to the table. And prefer win-win for all involved. I'm a proven media business executive who can focus on top line growth and manage margin. Able to successfully launch new products, improve processes and enhance current offerings which are meaningful to the end user and clients alike. Oh, and I've been told I'm a fairly nice guy to work with.

Little known facts about me you might find interesting and relevant:
• I’m considered to be a turn-around expert for non-profit trade associations with an emphasis on fiscal discipline and revenue generation – I understand P&L
• Early in my career I was an Industrial Engineer at Boeing and taught Quality Improvement – I am trained to look for better solutions
• I created the Innovation and Leadership in Advertising Award for the American Advertising Federation, District 10 – which has honored AT&T, JCPenney, Walmart, and Southwest Airlines. – I give back to the community while strengthening my business relationships
