The honorees are identified, researched and debated by the VenuesNow editorial team. They also solicit opinions of those who work in the sports industry. Regarding the selection process VenuesNow stated, “we evaluated individuals for factors that included documented excellence, innovation, financial success, commitment to diversity, and leadership in their field, in addition to their response to the challenges that 2020 has brought. We tried to recognize people at multiple levels of the business, not just those at the top.”

Pendulum is thrilled about Jonathan O’Neil Cole’s selection because it advances the Pendulum brand recognition as an established name in the sports architecture marketplace – we are here to stay. Regarding the announcement Cole stated:

“It is incredibly meaningful to receive recognition from a publication as prestigious as VenuesNow and editorial staff that is at the center of everything sport. Acknowledgment from journalists that rub shoulders with the thought-leaders and powerhouses of the industry on a daily basis is humbling. It reinforces that we are working at a very high level. It also bolsters my staff’s confidence in our methodology and relentless work ethic. This achievement is as much about my staff and family as it is about me; they all work incredibly hard, they support my vision, they drive innovation and are the foundation for our accomplishments over the last thirteen years – I am nothing without them.”

Cole has led design efforts on over twenty-five sports facilities across the nation in the last 24 years. During that time he has worked in the capacity of market leader, project designer, project architect and principal in charge.
