Speaker Bio
As a founder and the CEO of Vari, Jason McCann’s mission is to help companies create environments that elevate people.

A lifelong entrepreneur, McCann has more than 30 years of experience building and running successful companies. He learned the importance of putting the customer first early-on while working in his mother’s hair salon as a child.

McCann co-founded VariDesk in 2013, and the brand quickly became synonymous with sit-stand desks. Under his leadership, the company grew at an incredible pace and expanded its product and service offerings significantly, calling for its new, more inclusive name – Vari.

Today, the company has grown into a workspace innovation company that provides everything high-growth businesses need to unlock the potential of their workforce – from a full suite of office furniture to the workspaces themselves, offering space-as-a-service with VariSpace. A multi-tenant campus ideation lab designed to elevate the way businesses approach the office, VariSpace offers first-class amenities, fully furnished offices, and flexible lease terms to enterprise-level clients.

McCann accepted the award for 2016’s fastest growing company in the Dallas area at the annual SMU Cox Dallas 100- Awards Ceremony, and in 2017 he was honored with EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year award alongside his co-founder and longtime business partner. In 2021, D CEO Magazine named Jason CEO of the Year.

McCann has spoken at industry events including Dreamforce, the C-Suite Conference, and Startup Grind. In 2018, he was interviewed by CNN Money on the NYSE floor, and he spoke at Australia’s Parliament in 2015 regarding workspace innovations and their effects on public health. He has been published by Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc., and more.

McCann lives in Coppell, Texas, with his wife of 25 years and their three children. He is a board member at the Texas Real Estate Council and a member of Eric’s Club, a distinguished and select group of University of Houston’s Hilton College that build a legacy of student inspiration.

McCann earned both his BS and his MBA from the University of Houston.
