Experienced Leadership Drives Client Project Success
The JBS Executive Leadership team consists of a dedicated and seasoned group of client-focused business minded pros. With varied backgrounds in finance, coding, product design, project management and business acumen, our focus is three-fold:
- Making sure we are the “right–fit” for each client’s custom software and application project
- Aligning the correct JBS team to build each custom project
- Staying focused on delivering projects on time and on budget
The team believes in “full engagement”, empowering all the members of JBS with direct “take action” decision-making authority, encouraging their project “ownership” mentality and then supporting them in problem solving, coding, project management, and trouble-shooting performance problems before they can impact or derail a job. We celebrate our team’s unique balance between peer-to-peer accountability, project excellence and strive to help everyone achieve their personal and professional goals.
