Jeffrey JonesChief Executive Officer
Jeff Jones is the CEO of Apto Solutions, a passionate advocate for the adoption of circular economic strategies within the US and for businesses’ ability to positively transform our world and environment for the better. Working with a dedicated team, his mission is not only to partner with the world’s biggest companies to safely eliminate e-waste but to carve a path that others can follow in pursuit of active change.

When not developing e-waste solutions, Jones is an avid trail runner and cyclist, as well as a serial entrepreneur with a focus on new innovations in data security.
