Jon Rakes began his career in contract furniture and interiors in 1985, working with a major manufacturer in San Francisco. During his 9-year tenure there, Jon performed in a variety of positions including New Business Development and National Accounts, with responsibility for Intel, Hewlett Packard and Apple Computer.
After gaining an intimate understanding of the manufacturer side, Jon transitioned to distribution and has worked the past 21 years on the dealer side of the industry. His combination of experience on both the manufacturer and dealer side uniquely qualifies Jon as a resource to his customers. One of the greatest assets he offers clients is a wealth of experience and understanding of workplace performance, and he leverages that expertise to his customers’ advantage.
Since moving to Colorado from San Jose, California, you might find Jon “chasing the white ball” on the golf course or enjoying one of Colorado’s many ski slopes with his wife and two children. Jon claims to be “remarkably current” on today’s music, with thanks to his 16- and 19- year-old kids.
