Jason Derstine is a proud Temple University graduate in 2006, and a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. He started Alura Business Solutions while attending Temple University and ever since then the business has sustained a healthy 20-25% growth each year.
Jason started his career as an intern doing network engineering in Jenkintown. After that, he worked his way through technical support and network administration until he decided to launch Alura Business Solutions, and the rest is history.
Alura Business Solutions was built from the ground up while Jason attended college and he has and will always work to develop new productive relationships with both his clientele and the community. He grew Alura from one employee to over 10 in less than seven years with a revenue exceeding $2 million.
To this day, Jason maintains a customer service rating and client retention rate of over 98%.
While he’s not working, Jason actively exercises and travels and very much enjoys the outdoors. He is very socially active, having been featured in Philadelphia Top 100 twice and Philadelphia Top Owned LGBT Business three consecutive years (’12, ’13, ’14). Jason resides in Conshohocken, PA – just a short distance from Alura’s headquarters.
Well into the future, Jason plans to grow as a person alongside Alura Business Solutions. He will continue to develop the business models, ideologies and methodologies that have brought Alura Business Solutions this far in their short lifespan.
