Proteos Employee Spotlight:  Jason Haineault, M.Sci.
8/24/2017

At Proteos, we understand that it is our employees that make our company special.  Proteos’ scientific staff has decades of combined experience in the biotechnology and life science industries.  In the upcoming months, we will be featuring staff profiles in an employee spotlight series on our blog so that you can learn a bit more about the hard-working individuals responsible for orchestrating your recombinant protein production projects.  Our employee spotlight series begins with Jason Haineault.

Jason serves a dual role at Proteos as the Marketing Manager and a Senior Scientist in the Protein Expression group.  As Marketing Manager, Jason develops, implements, and manages Proteos’ marketing platforms to increase awareness and enhance the client experience.  As a Senior Scientist in the Protein Expression group, he is responsible for managing and conducting protein expression and cellular biology projects.

Jason has been with Proteos for over a decade and currently holds the most seniority in the company.  Starting as an intern in 2006 while attending Western Michigan University, he took a full-time position as Scientist in the Protein Expression group in 2007 and was later promoted to the Senior Scientist level.  Over the past six months as Marketing Manager, Jason has been focused on updating and rejuvenating Proteos’ website and digital marketing platforms.

While not at work, Jason keeps himself busy by teaching biology classes at multiple institutions both online and in the classroom.  He has been teaching as an adjunct instructor for the past five years and has had more than 1000 students take his courses.  He and his wife also enjoy traveling to escape the often-cold weather of Michigan.  They were married in Jamaica and have visited nearly 20 different Caribbean islands since that time.  The picture above of Jason and his wife, Becki, was taken in 2016 during an off-road adventure through Arikok National Park in Aruba.  One fact that Jason’s coworkers find odd about him is that he doesn’t eat bacon, popcorn, or ice cream.

When asked why he enjoys working at Proteos, Jason replied “I really enjoy the wonderful group of people that I get to work with every day and the challenge of helping researchers from around the world get the most out of their protein production projects.”  You can learn more about Jason’s background by visiting his LinkedIn profile at https://www.linkedin.com/in/jason-haineault-b488b525/.
