Jack’s spiritual journey involves losing his father at age 9 and coming to faith in his mid-20’s at a small church in Melbourne, Australia, where he encountered a love that he had not experienced before. The pastor challenged him to offer God everything he was and ever would be, and everything he had and ever would have. He was inspired to give away his last $1,000, and more importantly, he gave his heart and life to God and His purposes.
Trained as a CPA, he worked for a leading international accounting firm. Through this experience, a client hired him and together they founded two companies, BCD Travel and TRX, which grew to over 6,000 employees and $350 million in revenue. Both companies enjoyed recurring appearances on the Inc. 500 and won awards for innovation. As CEO of BCD Travel from 1987 to 2002, the organization grew to the 2nd largest corporate travel company in the U.S. Simultaneously, Jack acquired a technology firm, TRX, which created transaction-processing software for the travel industry, instrumental in powering Microsoft's Expedia. TRX grew from just 4 programmers to over 1,000 employees, generating more than $50 million in revenue. The company was ultimately purchased by Concur.
In 2005, Jack purchased an architectural software company, Tectonic, out of bankruptcy. Fourteen months later, he negotiated the sale of the company to Reed Elsevier. He then became CEO of Last Minute Tee-Times, helped restructure the company and negotiated a successful sale of the company to Comcast. In 2010, Jack became Vice Chairman and Partner of The Rainmaker Group Ventures, LLC. The company has grown to be the largest revenue management software system for apartments in the country.
