With SugarCon landing in New York this year, it was only fitting that we landed founder and former CEO of Travelocity.com, Terry Jones, as one of our keynote speakers. Drawing from his experience as chairman of Kayak.com and former CIO at airline tech pioneer Sabre, Jones will explain how leadership, innovation, and an openness to technology were crucial in revolutionizing the travel industry.

A graduate of Denison University in Granville, Ohio, Jones entered the travel industry in 1971 as a travel agent with Vega Travel in Chicago. He later served five years as a vice president of Travel Advisors, a company specializing in business travel to Eastern Europe and the USSR, with offices in Chicago and Moscow.

Currently, Jones is the managing principal and co-founder of Essential Ideas, a consulting firm he co-counded that helps organizations transition to the digital economy. He serves as Chairman of the Board of Kayak.com, and is on the boards of Smart Destinations, Inc., Luxury Link and Rearden Commerce. He is a special venture partner with General Catalyst Partners of Boston. Jones also is Chairman of the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival and serves on the national Information Technology committee of the Boy Scouts of America.
