Leadership Team

A Dedication to innovation

Faith Technologies’ leadership team brings industry-shifting strategy to the teams who run our business and execute our mission. With a dedication to innovation, they are keenly committed to the organization’s core values, and are responsible for continually moving the company forward through four key drivers: People, Planning, Productivity, and Innovative Solutions.

Faith’s CEO and President, Mike Jansen, began his career with the company as an apprentice, along with many of our group presidents and vice presidents. Many of the leaders throughout our field and office teams have completed Faith’s apprenticeship program, and use their learning and passion to inspire and challenge our teams each day.

In addition to a focus on ground up growth, Faith Technologies places a strong emphasis on succession planning. By investing in succession, we are deepening our relationships with our future leaders by providing them opportunities to advance along defined career paths and connecting employee capabilities and ambitions with organizational needs.
