Jon Holzmeister has been in sales leadership for the majority of his career. At age 24, Jon was Unitog’s youngest sales manager managing the Southeast Region, which included Atlanta and Charlotte. After his success at Unitog Jon moved to AngioDynamics, a pre-IPO medical device company where he achieved a growth rate that exceeded 20% annually. In 1999, Jon returned to Kansas City where he became the Vice President of Sales for Marketshare Group where he remained for 17 years. Marketshare Group specialized in consumer direct mail, list brokerage, email and mobile marketing — at their height, Marketshare Group mailed to over 16 million consumers. Jon then moved in the VP of Sales and Marketing role at NetStandard, an outsourced technology for the SMB space. At NetStandard, he achieved year-over-year growth each year of his tenure, including 2019, which is the largest revenue in company history.
Which brings us to today, Jon is the President of the Kansas City Region for Accelerent, a Business Development platform with business leaders that are focused on helping each other build their businesses. Accelerent currently has six market-locations including Kansas City, Washington DC, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Phoenix, and Denver. Each partner is exclusive to its business category and Accelrent brings them together in a variety of environments to build relationships and create new business. Accelerent uses a proprietary suite of tools, training, strategy, and support to generate measurable results for its partners. Before joining Accelerent, Jon was a partner for three years in which Accelerent was a core pillar in his business development platform. He understands first hand how Partners can use Accelernet to fuel their growth and benefit from building long-term relationships.
