President | Principal Shareholder
Jon Loftis grew up on his family’s cattle farm and in his dad’s manufacturing shop. On the walls of this shop, Jon always admired the patents his father had earned during his career and learned to love designing and building things. It was the process that Jon loved — the planning, the studying and all the decisions required to manage a successful project. He quickly learned that this requires a strong team working together and that every member is critical.
Jon moved to Richmond, VA to begin his career with Allied Signal after earning his BS in mechanical engineering from Auburn University. He served as a project engineer for the mechanical engineering group under Sidney Harrison while at Allied. After Sidney founded ITAC in 1988, Jon joined the company one year later to manage the mechanical design department. Utilizing the technical and leadership skills he learned leading fast track R&D projects for new process and product development, Sidney asked Jon to build a project management team and methodology (now called Assured Project Management) for ITAC’s growing business. Today, APM® plays a critical role in delivering focused and disciplined planning and execution to every job.
Jon now serves as ITAC’s president and oversees the design and construction operating units and business management of the company. His focus is on creating a winning experience for our clients and employees. Our greatest desire is to be a trusted partner to our clients and to earn their trust every day. With an open-door policy, Jon sets the tone for a collaborative culture of servant leadership and growth. Committed to generosity in his community, Jon serves on several boards and is a deacon at Ironbridge Church. Faith, family, and relationships drive his life and decision making.
