jackCEO of EC Wise, Jack is an experienced business leader and analyst with a strong background in software architecture and in designing products that effectively serve the needs of their target markets. Since launching EC Wise in 1998, Jack has built it into a leader in business integration and analytic services, and drove the creation and growth of EC Wise Chengdu. This is not the first time Jack created an offshore IT services company; earlier, he was CEO of ICS which did software development in Prague, Czechoslovakia.

Before entering the nascent PC software industry almost thirty years ago, Jack worked as a physicist on the cyclotron research staff at Columbia University. He also completed a Masters in Computer Science at the Courant Institute focusing on databases and machine learning.

His vision of a repeatable process that converts business goals into the right product for a well-defined market guides and focuses the efforts at EC Wise.

Prior to founding EC Wise, Jack held senior technical positions in several commercial software companies, including several years as Chief Architect at SBT Accounting Systems, where he was responsible for design and development of their client-server accounting system.
