Our Leadership Team

Jonathan Smith
Chief Executive Officer

When surrounded by success, failure is not a consideration. Growing up, Jonathan watched his father build a thriving engineering firm from the ground up in the midst of a recession. It was this firsthand perspective of fearless entrepreneurship that would eventually lead Jonathan on a similar path of his own. At age 19, while in college, Jonathan, along with current Director of Sales Engineering, Pete Smothers, recognized a need for providing better technology solutions to the community, and launched Xamin, Inc.

That simple vision has flourished into a well-respected, national leader of technology solutions. Smith continues to surround himself with success. He has embraced years of collective experience through strategic visionary relationships. He has hired the best people possible regardless of geography who align perfectly with the business’s innovating culture. He has empowered his peers to take ownership of their own visions and encourages them to create their own life, leadership, business and legacy plans. Smith leads the vision of this rapidly growing firm, and is responsible for overseeing all strategic initiatives. He is deeply involved with new business development, finance, marketing, and other efforts that positively influence his team’s high-performing culture.
