Senior Vice President, Business Development & Operations
Jon joined EDGE3 in 2014 to pursue customer engagements, develop supplier relationships, expand marketing activities, and contribute to the Company’s overall brand as well as product development deployment efforts. Jon really enjoys rolling up his sleeves and gets involved wherever he is needed. He has even been involved in the design of some of the Company’s product concepts and associated user interfaces.
Jon worked previously at Recommind, augmenting the Company’s ecosystem primarily through strategic partnerships and go-to-market activities. His work initiating and defining the partnership with OpenText ultimately led to the acquisition of Recommind. Prior to that, Mr. Barad spent over six years at NVIDIA where he managed NVIDIA’s corporate venture investment program, and led business development for its newly formed GRID cloud computing business unit. Jon started his career in Venture Capital at ITU Ventures, and he co-founded OrganicID which developed printable electronics technology to produce low-cost radio frequency identification devices (RFID). Weyerhaeuser acquired the business in 2006 for its 3D printing technology.
Jon holds a BS in Systems Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He is a kidney donor, and lives in Mill Valley, California with his wife and two young boys.
