EPS Product: LEADERSHIP
JON LEASIA – PRESIDENT / CEO
Jon launched EPS in 1992 with the sole purpose of providing a turnkey resource to events of all shapes and sizes. Just three years later, EPS was awarded the contract for the ‘look’ of the 1996 Olympics, and that same year received the “Emerging Business of the Year” award from The Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce. In 2001, EPS went global and merged with the premier supplier to the Tour de France, Doublet France, to form what is now EPS-Doublet. Jon loves the manufacturing process and the many daily challenges and opportunities that it offers while driving towards new customer solutions. Jon has served on the boards of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Young Life and both the regional and national boards of the American Liver Foundation. When Jon is not in the office he enjoys fly fishing, wing shooting, skiing, hiking, golf and motorcycle adventures. Jon has three grown children, Genevieve, Claire and Grant, and one grandson, Copeland. Jon and his wife, Judith, travel extensively but would rather be in Colorado than anywhere else on earth.
