Jason McCannCEO & Co-Founder, Varidesk
As a founder and the CEO of VARIDESK, Jason McCann’s mission is to help companies re-imagine a more Active Workspace — one with happier, healthier, and more productive people.
A lifelong entrepreneur, Jason has more than 20 years of experience building and running successful companies. He first learned the importance of putting the customer first as a child, while sweeping up hair at his mom’s salons in Galveston, Texas.
Today, Jason oversees all aspects of VARIDESK from design, to sales, to customer service and distribution. Under his leadership, VARIDESK has grown rapidly from a company with one innovative product to a global leader in active workspace solutions. VARIDESK products can be found in more than 130 countries and more than 98% of Fortune 500 companies. In five years, VARIDESK has grown from two co-founders to more than 250 employees.
Much of that growth is a testament to Jason’s focus on exceptional customer service and quality products that are easy to set up and simple to use. This philosophy continues to shape the company’s growing suite of furniture and accessories.
On behalf of VARIDESK, Jason accepted the award for 2016’s fastest growing company in the Dallas area at the annual SMU Cox Dallas 100 Awards Ceremony. In 2017, Jason was honored with Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year award alongside his co-founder and longtime business partner.
Jason lives in Texas with his wife of 22 years and their three children. Jason is actively involved in his local community. Among other initiatives, he serves as a judge for the Coppell High School Incubator program, which develops the entrepreneurs of the future.
Jason earned both his B.S. and MBA from the University of Houston.
