Chad Vice President of Sales – U.S. & National Accounts
I joined the JONES team in March 2004. I have been in the beverage industry since 1995 spending a few years on the distributor side of the business then moved to the supplier side. Home base is West Des Moines, Iowa with my beautiful wife Krista and our adorable kids Maxwell and Olivia. I spend most of my work time traveling across the country visiting our great distributors and retailers. My free time is spent with my family, friends and anything outdoors.
JONES is truly the spirit of the beverage industry and I’m very proud to be a part of it!!! We have over 1 million Facebook fans that love this brand, unique flavors and beverage innovations we develop. We have a great team at JONES and someday will be a $100,000,000 company.
FAVORITE QUOTE: "They don't care what you know...until they know that you care!!!"
ACTIVITIES: Anything outdoors hot, cold, water, snow or dirt (Snowboards, Long boards, Boats, Paddle Boards, Motorcycles, Mountain Bikes, Canoes and anything my kids want to do!!!)
Aron Regional Manager - Canada
Aron was born and raised in South Africa. Along with his family, they found their way around the world before finally settling in Toronto, Canada. "BRRrrr!" He says, "I often get asked if I had a pet lion growing up, so it only seemed fitting that my picture shows me playing with a lion cub (I didn't have a lion btw)."
From a professional standpoint, he has done everything from Life-Guarding, to Day-trading the stock market, to Sales. Sales, however, has taken up the majority of his professional career. He has spent several years developing the Ontario and Western Canada markets in the consumer packaged goods industry and, as a result, found his way to reside in British Columbia.
He currently lives in Ontario after spending a year in Vancouver with, what he calls, "the cutest dog in the world - Simba, A.K.A - Little Monster, A.K.A - Mr. Happy (as his tail is always wagging - even when he's dreaming)."
Pet Peeves -Traffic, and Public displays of affection
Favorite sports - Surfing, swimming, white water rafting, and anything else in the water.
Favorite foods - Pizza, hamburgers, poutine (you'll have to come to Canada and try it).
I started 2013 with a resolution to indulge in Jones Soda every day. To my delight, I will get to do just that as Territory Manager for BC.
Sales, customer service and hospitality experience of nearly a decade has led me to my new adventure with Jones Soda. From cashier to serving to meeting and hosting Christine Sinclair and the Canadian Women's Olympic Soccer Team as Hotel Sales Manager, I have met some wonderful people who have inspired me and contributed to who I am today.
I love yoga, travelling the world, cooking, spending time with my family and friends, a good glass of Cab Sauv, sushi, hockey, country music, meeting new people and of course my little rescue dog Joey.
I look forward to my career at Jones Soda.
Favourite Jones Flavor: Cream Soda – reminds me of my childhood ... every time I take a sip!
Brian Director of West Coast and National Accounts
I have been in the beverage industry for approximately 12 plus years. I was in management with Columbia Distributing from 1992 thru 2002. Took an 8 year break and dabbled in the mortgage/construction industry. In 2010 got back into the beverage industry but not with a distributor but with a supplier. Now here with Jones and extremely excited!!!
I spend most of my time with my daughter (Hailey) and son (Zachary), doing everything under the sun. They are my pride and Joy!!!
Fun for me consists of: riding my motorcycle, playing golf, working out and hanging out with friends/family. This being my first year back playing golf after 3 years because of multiple surgeries. I am excited to see if I can get back to a 4 handicap.
To wrap it up, if you are ever in Oregon, give me a call. Let’s play a round of 18!

Jay Territory Manager - Los Angeles
Hey Jones Soda Family!
I’m a native of Los Angeles and an old school Joneser. My interests include indoor & outdoor sports, music of all kinds, art of all types and generally travelling around locally or beyond if I get the chance.
I LOVE all types of music especially Jazz, Classic Rock, 70’s Soul & 90’s Hip Hop. I’m an amateur chef at home & do my best to cook with natural foods. When my TV’s on its showing movies, documentaries, stand-up comedy, live concerts and sports…that’s it.
My philosophy is simple…love yourself & love others…the rest takes care of itself. I’m all about passion, creativity & intuitiveness. I believe that if you nurture those 3 elements in your spirit, you can accomplish anything you focus on…I am living proof.
Tim Territory Manager - Northern California
I was born in beautiful San Jose California. I've worked in the beverage industry for about 10 years and have a natural passion, knowledge and energy for this industry. I’m grateful to be working for Jones Soda!
When I'm not working, you can find me hanging with my family, hanging with my girlfriend and her cat Puppy, cheering for the San Jose Sharks, crying for the San Jose Sharks, watching really bad television programs, listening to fast music way too loud, playing fast music way too loud, going to Tahoe, attempting to golf, eating Ethiopian food, playing golf and other assorted leisurely activities.
My favorite flavor of Jones in Crushed Melon, and I'm beyond excited about its return!
