“I’m passionate about the work SVA does to help our clients and drive social impact. I feel privileged to work with motivated for-purpose organisations and people, understand their ambitions and challenges, and help them on their journey to better address disadvantage.”

Jack is a Principal in the Consulting team, with expertise in financial analysis, economic modelling, scaling strategies, and facilitation. He has worked with non-profit, government and corporate clients to help clarify, pursue, and achieve their social impact objectives.

Leading SVA Consulting’s practice in Queensland, Jack’s work has spanned across the mental health, disability, health, housing, early childhood, and education sectors, with an emphasis on capital projects, business planning, and data analysis. Jack’s most notable projects have included leading local and national projects for Goodstart Early Learning, Healthy North Coast, St Vincent’s Care Services, Humanitech (an initiative of the Australia Red Cross), Youth Live4Life, and the Brave Foundation.

Jack values working with motivated organisations and leaders, and has collaborated with two of his clients on a SVA Quarterly article about succession planning for outgoing founders.

Prior to joining SVA in 2018, Jack worked as a design engineer on complex infrastructure projects, and on research projects at the National Opinion Research Centre at the University of Chicago.
