Jonathan Weinstein, PMP, President
Why I started Line of Sight: I couldn’t stand working for the "Man" any more AND Tim and I had a vision of a really great place to work with great people on cool projects and figured it was up to us to create that place.
What floats my boat: A wry sense of humor (the Brits know comedy); REAL New York pizza; big problems that I can dive into and fix; my wife and two sons, oh…and anything baseball, including coaching Little League.
What I think is out of line: Someone saying, "It can’t be done."
Favorite LOS projects:
- Rapidly designing and implementing a new process for cross-department coordination at ACE USA Insurance to improve their end of year financial reporting.
- Redesigning a Tuft’s University department charged with raising over $1B over the next few years; including development of a new mission, vision, values, and goals for the department, as well as the definition of its core customer-facing business processes.
- Delivering the NY State Project Management Mentoring program; working with the next wave of project leaders across the state government.

In 2001, Jon hosted "Business to Business" a radio show delivering practical advice from business leaders to business leaders on the issues of the day. Armed with an advanced degree in National Security Policy, he entered the consulting ranks for the laid-back work environment.
