Jason Herd is a disruptor in the construction software space. Starting in the electrical field at 16, Herd was one of the first youths enrolled in the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program in its inaugural year and has been on a fast track ever since. He completed the two-year electrical engineering technician program at Mohawk College in 18 months, was licensed at the age of 21, and by the time he was 29 he managed the planning, estimating, and negotiations of the contract for Tim Hortons Field, home of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
Under his direction as vice-president and director of business development, Fairway Electrical Services grew from $3.5 million to $20 million, landing it among Canada’s fastest-growing companies list. When he saw gaps in operational processes, he turned to technology, founding Tradetraks, a purpose-built SaaS platform built on the core pillars of running a successful trades business: operations, finance, health and safety, and communication.
