Management Team / Advisory Board Bios
Founder/CEO/Director/Chairman of the Board
Jason Giddings is Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Giddings Product Development, Inteliscope LLC. An aerospace engineer and a lifelong entrepreneur and inventor, Jason observed that many smaller custom product-based businesses could not afford to build up their own product development teams capable of professional-level industrial design. As a result, he founded Giddings Product Development in 2005. In 2007, services were expanded to include production tooling and manufacturing. In 2010, capabilities were further increased by the addition of printed circuit board design as well as software and firmware development. In 2013, he formed Inteliscope LLC, in an endeavor to create and manufacture a smartphone mount that turns your iPhone or Android into a low cost thermal scope for rifles and archery. Jason has several patents and has designed hundreds of products that are currently being sold in every corner of the world.
