Before joining Total Expert, Jabs held the role of CTO with Calabrio, where he led the company through a significant period of growth and transformation driven by accelerated SaaS adoption. Prior, Jabs led multiple business units at Entrust, a leader in trusted payments, identities, and data; directed investor engagements in the technology sector; and worked within the U.S. Government in emerging technology.
