Jon joined LEO Events as Production Coordinator  in 2016, with a variety of experience in events management, ranging from restaurants and academia to Fortune 500 companies. Most recently, he oversaw all meetings and events for the Halloran Centre for the Performing Arts & Education.

Since transferring to Memphis in 2015, Jon has embraced the city, taking on many professional, community and philanthropic initiatives. He achieved his Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) certification by the Convention Industry Council in 2017 and is currently the VP of Education Programs for the Memphis Chapter of the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI). Jon is an Embark Memphis graduate (2016) from the New Memphis Institute. He also is a mentor through the Memphis Grizzlies Scholars Program. Most recently, Jon was recognized as one of the top ten “Young Memphis” professionals under 30 to watch by the Memphis Chamber of Commerce. 

He has a B.M. from Kent State and a Master’s in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from Ohio State, perhaps making him LEO’s most musically talented team member as well.
