Jones launched pcOrder in June 1996 as a spin-off from Trilogy, the company she co-founded as a Stanford University student in 1989. Trilogy is a leading provider of sales, marketing and business-to-business electronic commerce applications for Fortune 500 companies such as Hewlett-Packard and Boeing.

At pcOrder, Jones has secured major members of the computer industry as partners and customers, and led the company to its position as the recognized industry standard for buying and selling computer products on the Internet.

Forbes Magazine has featured Jones on three covers, most recently for her success in moving the indirect distribution channel for computers to the Internet. She was recently named the 1999 National Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year. Jones was also named one of Computer Reseller News' Top 25 Executives for 1999 and a member of MIT's Top 100.

Jones has also been named a Web Innovator by Information Week and one of the Top 20 Leaders Under 30 by Working Woman. She was also presented with the Business Journal's 1999 Profiles in Power award. In addition, Jones was one of the inaugural winners of the Texas eComm 10 award.

A graduate of Stanford University, Jones received a B.A. in economics in 1991.
