Jason Peoples – West Coast Regional Sales Manager

Jason joined Avantes late in 2020. None of us had any idea that a pandemic would soon change our lives completely. As a new sales engineer, Jason had to learn to build relationships with customers in a new way as he could no longer visit them in person. Luckily Jason comes from a 10-year spectroscopy background working in Remote Sensing and Material Analysis in the Agriculture industry. This background combined with his charming personality was what he needed to get to know our customers and understand their needs without being able to see them in person. We are so happy to have Jason as a part of our team!
