Identity connects us, so Signal uses its ongoing Signalite Social Spotlight to feature our incredible employees for who they really are. The more you learn about them, the more you’ll begin to recognize what makes our favorite individuals unique. Can you identify?
Jonathan Petrino, better known as JP. Vice president of strategic sales. Never leaves home without hand sanitizer and his iPhone.
One word he uses to describe himself: “mobile” — fitting as he’s lived in 10 states (Indiana, California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Minnesota, North and South Carolina, Texas and Oklahoma). Favorite place he’s lived: Southern California (“What’s not to love about beaches and surfing, warm weather and interesting cuisine?”)
Likes: Good food, fine wines, business books (favorite book of all time: ‘The Alchemist’), vintage watches and European cars. Dislikes: Cold weather, general disrespect, lack of ownership. Loves to travel, but hates most things travel-related, e.g. waiting in line, germs, airport food.
Biggest regret: “I really wish I had learned another language. I can’t speak any language fluently — I do know a little Dutch and Spanish, though.”
What’s your favorite part about “selling stuff” at Signal? “I love talking to our customers and helping organizations change the way they do business. Professionally, I am very passionate about that.”
