An “operative of the highest order,” Jack’s talent for executive action was honed over two decades of public and private service at the intersection of policy, politics, and the institutional procedures that bind them in Washington, DC.
Before returning home to follow entrepreneurialism’s call, Jack served as Senior Director of Federal Government Relations for the American Chiropractic Association, where his adeptness at building enduring relationships with elected officials, congressional and agency staff, and a diverse stakeholder community produced favorable outcomes for the profession. Having worked to influence healthcare law since 2001, Jack has chaired the Patient’s Access to Responsible Care Alliance, a coalition of healthcare trade associations representing over one million Medicare Part B providers, and also served on the steering committees of the Northern Virginia Health Policy Forum, and Coalition for Patient’s Rights.
Jack’s public service began as a professional staff member of the House Ways and Means Committee under its Chairman, Bill Thomas. Following that formative experience, Jack joined the staff of Congressman Jerry Weller, a senior member of the committee, where he coordinated Weller’s leadership initiatives as Majority Deputy Whip, and served as his Staff Director of the House Policy Committee Subcommittee on Technology.
Passionate about our democratic process and all things political, Jack has enjoyed the opportunity to work toward the election of Republican candidates across the spectrum. In addition to managing the daily operations of Mr. Weller’s 2006 re-election, Jack served as the Executive Director of REFORM PAC, as liaison to the National Republican Congressional Committee’s executive team, and has had the distinct honor of campaigning on behalf of dozens of candidates in 23 states (and counting!)
As president of Consurge Strategies, Jack is responsible for all facets of the firm’s growth, including delivering the projects and programs Consurge develops and services for clients in a wide array of settings and disciplines.
