What makes him a leader: Jones has built an intelligence solutions team that concentrates on using products from companies in the In-Q-Tel portfolio.

The team's revenues have increased by five times.

The vendors on Jones' team also have been successful. One, Endeca Technologies Inc., has seen its government business triple since working with Carahsoft. Another, piXlogic, did its first DOD work through Jones' team.
