I appreciated that about him and like that
in a CEO. Now that I am a CEO, I frequently
ind myself thinking about situations
that Bick and I had talked about. I will go
digging through my iles and come up with
an SOP [standard operating procedure]
that Bick had in place when he was here
and send this out to people saying, 'Let's
revisit this SOP,' " she says.
Patrick Wendelberger, vice president
of operations, PRO EM National Event
Services, Phoenix, has known Jones for at
least 25 years and values him as a friend
and mentor.
" Bick knows everybody in this industry.
Before there was social media, he was
already networked in. He is a connector
and is always there to listen and give
advice. I don't think I am unique. I think
he was a good sounding board to so many
in the industry, " he says.
John Campanelli, the former leader of
Classic Party Rentals, who retired this
past January as the CEO of InProduction
in Chicago, has worked with Jones on and
off for the last 15 years.
" Bick was running Ducky-Bob's when
we acquired it in 2005. Then he started
working for me at Classic. Over the years,
we have worked together directly or
indirectly with Marquee Events and PEAK
as I was on the board for both of those
companies. In 2019, I asked him to work
for me at InProduction. He was running
CommuniLux, our subsidiary in Dallas, "
Campanelli says, adding that, " If it wasn't
for me, he would have retired a couple of
years before. I got a few more years out of
him so I could retire, " he says with a laugh.
Now that Jones is oficially retired, what
does he plan to do? " My son and I bought a
tenting business in Houston, Texas. He has
been running it since March of 2020. He
wanted me to help out on a part-time basis.
I thought it was time to take whatever I
learned over the years and help my son
out a little bit-do something as a family
business, " he says, adding that this time he
will keep it on a part-time basis.
