Jon De Langis started his career in construction working and developing his knowledge in every trade in construction. Jon quickly excelled through the ranks in construction and at age twenty-four earned his first General Contractor’s License in the State of California. He was the youngest in the state at the time to earn this license classification. After thirty years in construction, Jon has developed countless projects throughout the United States and Mexico. Jon’s experiences includes multi tenant residential projects, commercial retail, commercial industrial, health care facilities, airport specialty projects, hazardous remediation, parks and recreation facilities and now focuses on very high-end residential development in Orange County, CA

This market segment has been largely ignored by the technological innovations in e-procurement and e-commerce.
