OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM
Jon Gilbert - President & CEO
Jon Gilbert is the President and CEO of AAC. As the owner, his role is to train, motivate and work with management staff. In a short period of time he has risen to the top of the energy industry as one of the nation's top producers in energy sales! Jon began his career in the defense industry where he became the Director of Procurement for a half-billion-dollar company in California. In 1994, Jon partnered in a telecommunications company to take advantage of opportunities developing in the recently deregulated telecom industry (very similar to what is happening in the energy market today). His company provided wholesale long distance deregulated commercial services including OC3's, DS3's and T1's, plus built a national prepaid calling business using privately owned switch platforms to accommodate commercial clients through the country. He developed alliances with all the major US and International long distance carriers. Jon grew the company into a multi-million dollar business and sold the business in 2000. He started his second company that designed and networked companies throughout the country and was one of the first to install a voice over internet protocol (VOIP) system from Florida to California in the U.S. This company also included structural cabling for large projects that included high-rise buildings and other large commercial projects. He sold that company in January 2007 to focus all efforts on the energy industry.
