Vasco L. Bridges III (Nosa)

CEO, JANO Technologies

Hailing from a family of entrepreneurs, Vasco has always had a passion for positively impacting his community through business & entrepreneurship.

A family-owned, 30-year old technology company with offices in both Mississippi and Illinois, JANO leads its customers through major technological shifts, including the implementation of its proprietary court case management technology, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security and IT Managed Services. JANO counts sixteen of Illinois’ largest counties as its customers.

Since 1989, JANO has been on the forefront to bring the latest technology to Illinois county courts and criminal justice organizations. CLERICUS MAGNUS is its proprietary, configurable, integrated family of products that provide comprehensive and scalable case management solutions. In October 2020, JANO purchased Viscon, a leading IT services company based in Champaign, allowing the company to holistically support the technology needs of any county government in Illinois. Today, JANO is still a privately held, family-owned software development company, with its corporate headquarters and development center in Jackson, MS. It also has offices in Chicago and Champaign.

Vasco is the current CEO and is the son of one of the original late co-founders of JANO. He has also held management consulting roles at Northwestern Mutual, focused on Small Business Ecosystem development, and at Deloitte, focused on supply chain transformation and operating model redesign. For several years, he was also the Executive Director of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program, leading the local Chicagoland efforts for the national initiative, in partnership with the City Colleges of Chicago.
