Jon Anderson began his career by serving his country for 20 years in the US Nuclear Navy. During that time he was assigned to the staff of Admiral Hymen G. Rickover providing technical oversight and training for the nuclear fleet. Jon received three Navy Achievement Medals as well as the Navy Commendation Medal during his naval career. After retiring from the US Navy in 1990, Jon has continued to serve by helping others to meet their goals related to work management and equipment reliability.
Jon has been able to forecast the needs of the industries he supports well in advance of that need being recognized by those industries. For example, between 1985 and 1990 Jon developed “Functional Equipment Groups” (FEGs) which have now become a standard tool used by many companies, and between 1990 and 1992 he made the switch from systems to component type preventive maintenance evaluations, which has become the standard in asset intensive businesses. More recently, Jon developed the “Least Cost, Life Cycle Management” model which recognizes that there are many ways to maintain assets and develop processes. Jon’s model takes the business step to ensure assets and processes meet required levels of performance at the least life cycle cost.
Outside of the office Jon’s passion has always been to serve others and to give back to the community. When he’s not with his family, he often spends his weekends with Habitat for Humanity building new homes for the less fortunate. Whether it is guiding customers to improve the performance of their businesses or helping those in need, Jon is there.
