Jonathan Silverthorn’s first experience with the business services side of Silo was actually through his wife!
“My wife worked for a business where Silo was installing a PBX system and she noticed they were hiring,” he explained.
In a stroke of serendipity, Jonathan ended up being the perfect fit for the role of Business Development Specialist!
Having spent some time as a field technician at another telecommunications company and in possessing a background in sales, Jonathan had everything we were looking for – not to mention his passion for the work.
“I have always enjoyed being on the leading edge of technology. I saw that Silo was doing great things for underserved communities and thought it would be a great thing to be a part of,” he said.
Now it’s his job to find areas where we can meet the needs of businesses.
“I meet with clients, find out what their needs are and how we can help,” he said.
Jonathan’s biggest goals are to provide for his family, better himself and serve others. Part of meeting these goals is his constant pursuit of improving his skills and education.
He is enrolled in some online master’s courses in theological studies that he plans to start soon.
Outside of work, Jonathan spends a great deal of time with his wife and 5-month-old daughter. He is also the youth pastor at his church and he enjoys video games and Dungeons & Dragons.
