Jack is a SVP and General Manager at Seven Bridges with responsibility for empowering government, academic, and non-profit clients. His team has grown the business to add key strategic capabilities (e.g. imaging) and new therapeutic areas (e.g. infectious disease). This growth correlates with an approximately 4x increase in revenue from 2018 to 2022. Jack has P&L responsibility for the entire business unit and has improved business models. Jack also serves as a PI or Co-I on multiple NIH projects, some exceeding $2M of annual revenue. Strategically, his organization helps the NIH realize return on the investments they have made in data generation and ecosystems.
Jack is an empathetic, solution-oriented leader with strong communication skills. He also serves the community, e.g. co-chairing the NIH Cloud Platform Interoperability Effort (NCPI) to help researchers bring together data and tools from NCI, NHLBI, Common Fund, NHGRI, and others.
Previously, Jack was Director of Program management – Program Management involves interaction with diverse financial, technical and community members to shape, develop, win, execute & renew strategic, multi-year engagements. Fundamentally, program managers are communicators who enable seamless information sharing across cross-functional, geographically distributed teams (internal and external) throughout the entire Program life cycle. Jack still supports the Programs team, determines overall strategy, engages with prospective clients, and sets product development priorities within Programs to maximize value to both the customer and Seven Bridges. Jack has worn many hats as the company grew including Business Development, Marketing, and Product among others.
Prior to joining Seven Bridges, Jack worked at ETH Zürich and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in neuroscience, machine learning, and prosthetics. He earned a BS in Electrical Engineering from Penn State in 2002 and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Florida in 2008 – his thesis featured a novel brain-machine interface architecture based on reinforcement learning.
