Spanning 32 years, Jack’s career in marketing and sales began on the American Express Platinum desk, where he honed his skills servicing the credit card company’s premier clientele. After a brief stint learning the trading business as part of an elite team founding the first Schwab Institutional Service Group in Phoenix, Jack was one of the first employees at the brand new Chase call center, where he developed the marketing for the Chase/Shell, and Chase/British Airways co-branded Visa products. From there, he was recruited to manage two top-billing clients at a boutique advertising and public relations firm. His primary client was the developer of large master-planned communities for seniors in Arizona.
Jack's passion for design after a double major in Communications and Interior Design at Arizona State University eventually led him to Ralph Lauren Home in the Biltmore. He quickly became one of the top 10 home collection salespersons companywide. He was moved to the flagship showroom in Beverly Hills, where he ultimately worked on the design and furnishing of more than 35 private residences worldwide. Celebrities, a former first lady, the founder of the Trevor Project, and multiple members of the Saudi and Bahrain royal families were among his many fascinating clients.
After the events of 9/11 halted his projects in Cairo and Riyadh, Jack moved to San Francisco where he began fundraising for local and national causes, chairing more than 25 gala fundraising events, serving on multiple boards including the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art - Northern CA, Golden Gate Audubon, and the St. Andrew's Society of San Francisco. He served on the stewardship committee at Grace Cathedral, prepared meals for Project Open Hand, and built affordable housing with Habitat for Humanity. He successfully raised more than a half-million dollars for GLAAD during his five years on the team that produced their annual awards banquet. Jack has been committed to serving the community since his National Honor Society days in high school.
In addition to participating in monthly neighborhood cleanups organized by Northern Neighbors, leading architectural history tours, and serving as a Precinct Inspector for the City and County of San Francisco in the last six elections, Jack donates at the close of every real estate transaction.
For the last 18 years, in addition to his thriving real estate business, Jack has managed a successful consulting company, and is a trained Property Surveyor and Inspector, providing comprehensive, high-quality, customizable loss control inspections for high-value residential and commercial insurance lines.
