San Diego, September 9, 2016— Vistage Chair Jon Jennings has recently launched a new chief executive group in the Bismarck, North Dakota market.

More than [mbr-member] executives, business owners and CEOs around the world rely on local area groups to get the most out of their businesses.
Vistage Regional Executive Dave Bartel applauded his success: “Jon is one of those thoughtful leaders that I feel draws the best out of people. Putting his members first and supporting them has been Jon’s practice and one that serves his members and the community well.”
A former President and CEO of North Dakota Concrete Products, Jon Jennings brings over 35 years of diverse and substantive experience to his role as Group Chair for Vistage International. Jon’s career began as a civil engineer with Veigel Engineering, the predecessor of KLJ. He spent a short time as the county engineer for Burleigh County and then joined North Dakota Concrete Products in January of 1981 as a technical sales engineer.
