With the vision of providing world class professional development programs and networking events for chief financial officers, Jack founded The CFO Leadership Council in 2006.  Under his leadership, the organization achieved national recognition.  Formerly, Jack was the Director of KPMG’s Global Innovation Center, where he worked with early-stage investors, entrepreneurs, CFOs, and other members of the venture community.  Prior to KPMG, he served as a CFO for 26 startups, raising more than $200 million in capital. In addition, Jack is a founder of the MIT Sloan CFO Summit, which has been recognized as the world’s most influential conference for financial leaders. 

As a former chief financial officer, entrepreneur, and recognized expert on financial matters, Jack can empathize with the challenges that corporate leaders face in growing today’s businesses. In addition to developing a venture capital course for Harvard Business School and MIT Sloan MBA candidates, he has been interviewed by Bloomberg, CNN, and Fox Business Network and quoted by the Wall Street Journal, CFO Magazine, Treasury and Risk Management, the Boston Business Journal, and Business Finance Magazine.
