CELEBRATING30 YEARS: 1984 - 2014
The Aero Club of Metropolitan Atlanta was founded in 1984 by Lockheed Aircraft Company executives and local business people to serve the aviation community.
Previously, Jack was Vice President, Strategy and Business Development for Air Mobility, Special Operations and Maritime Programs. In this position he developed and executed the mobility line of business strategy and he led a team responsible for worldwide sales of all versions of the C-130J and for modernization and sustainment of both new and legacy Air Mobility, SOF and Maritime aircraft, including the C-5M and P-3.
Jack also served as the Deputy for International Air Mobility reporting to the Vice President of Air Mobility and Special Operations Forces for several years. In this capacity, he was accountable for the pursuit and capture of mobility, maritime patrol, and sustainment opportunities in the international market place.
While in leadership positions, Jack has been asked by the executive team to assume special assignments and to personally lead the capture of corporate focus and priority programs including the USN’s Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft; as well as successful campaigns in Canada, Denmark, Greece, and Malaysia. In this capacity he formed integrated product teams that defined the program requirements, establish schedules, partnerships, and defined the appropriate business case to ensure success with US Government and international customer counterparts.
Jack joined Lockheed in 1986 in the Public Relations department and later was asked to join the international sales organization where he became the senior sales manager of S.E. Asia and the surrounding region. He graduated from the University of Georgia with a BA degree in journalism and business administration. Jack is also a 2012 graduate of the National Defense University, Industrial College of the Armed Forces, where he earned a Masters in Science of National Resource Strategy.
