Jon is currently the CEO of YouNow, a top-50 social media app by revenue. He is a turnaround and growth specialist who was previously the CEO of Finder US, which he steered from infancy to 8-figure revenue, and SVP at Chicken Soup for the Soul, where he spearheaded their social media audience growth from 300,000 people to over a billion. He was also a director at 1-800-flowers, where he completed 17 M&A transactions and grew the international business from $1 million to $40 million in revenue, and he was the general manager for Allmenus, which he led from having 1,000 restaurants to over a quarter of a million. He has also written and published two books, and still finds time to go snowboarding during the winter.
