A master of strategic planning, Jones designed a new organizational model for General Electric to ensure more accountability and control for specific large industry sectors. Despite a difficult economic climate, Jones was able to double revenues during his tenure from $10 billion to $22 billion and almost triple earnings from $570 million to $1.4 billion.
