At Trilogy, one of the largest privately held and most profitable international enterprise software and electronic commerce companies in the world, Jack supported company growth as revenues climbed from $2.5 million to over $250 million annually, and led the process in spinning off an operating entity (pcorder.com), positioning it for a future IPO.
