Owner Profile: Jonathan Bartleson
Like my Dad and Grandpa before me, I am a small business owner. There is something deeply satisfying knowing that:
- Our business success depends on creativity, effort and the trust developed with customers.
- We have each created something from nothing.
In 20+ years of running it, there are always new challenges and things to learn. With each new day, there is the opportunity to help other businesses grow. If you can't tell by now... I'll just say it -- I truly love what I do for a living!
My role within the company has evolved over-time. In the beginning, I was a 1 man band (sales, developer, president and janitor.) As we hired staff, my roles evolved towards sales, project manager, and requirements author. In 2015 I took a deliberate decision to get out of software application development and go back to my roots of data reporting and analysis.
To that end, I've spent significant effort over the last years refreshing my knowledge of SQL Server and the data science field. I passed my last exam for SQL Server MCSA in November 2016 and the Microsoft Professional Program in Data Science in November 2017. I am honored and enthusiastic to use my knowledge and experience to help other organizations.
I’m an avid motorcyclist and sailor who has been fortunate to live in West Africa, India, Spain, and Manhattan. Born and raised in Michigan, I moved to Georgia in 1992 and have been a Rome resident since 2006. Camping and hiking are favorite activities I share with my wife and children.
