With a résumé that included positions at powerhouses like NIKE, American Express and Turner Network Television, Jon was well positioned to start his own agency. Determined to fill the gaps in service and strategy he saw while working client-side, he opened Hothouse in 1998 and has since activated countless campaigns for the country’s leading sports, entertainment and consumer brands. His insider’s perspective has provided a solid foundation for continued growth, though he’s committed to remaining strongly independent. Sorry, holding companies. Nothing to see here.
