Prior to joining Coleman Lew, Jonas spent over four years in the recruiting and leadership development field with boutique firms in the Charlotte area. His specialties include talent assessment technology and e-learning platforms. During his tenure with Sherpa’s Human Resources division, he focused primarily on senior-level recruiting and served some of the Charlotte area’s largest employers.
He also has experience as a professional golfer, having played six seasons and over 65 sanctioned events across the world as both a European Tour and PGA Tour member. With three professional victories under his belt, his favorite course is Castle Stuart Golf Links on the Scottish coastline near Inverness.
A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte — where he was a three-time Academic All-American — with a BS in business administration and managerial leadership, Jonas serves on the board of directors of the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce here in the Carolinas. He and his wife have one child.
Jonas is a native of Sweden and, as you might expect, is a winter sports fanatic. It’s no coincidence that his personal favorite is downhill skiing, as both his parents’ first jobs were as ski instructors. On his bucket list is skiing on every continent; he’s already crossed Europe, North America and Australia off the list.
