Jack joined Meals of Hope in October, 2022 as Director of Franchise Development. In this role, Jack is responsible for the creation, growth and development of the Franchise Operation of Meals of Hope, including developing and implementing the business infrastructure and Franchise sales systems, while enabling positive and effective Franchisee relationships.
Prior to joining Meals of Hope, Jack was at Analog Devices, Inc. where he was a global high-tech manufacturing operations and supply chain management professional. Accumulating over 35 years of semiconductor industry experience, he focused on increasing output, reducing cost, and improving bottom line results. With extensive global supplier management experience in a sub-contract manufacturing environment, he drove growth and profitability through strong operations focus.
Jack first met Steve Popper while both were in the undergraduate program at Babson College, in Wellesley MA. While staying in touch after college, Jack was drawn to the Meals of Hope Concept, attracted by the notion of doing good work while giving back to the community. After attending his first meal packing event in Naples, FL in 2018, both Jack and his wife were hooked, and took the first opportunity to get directly involved when Jack took an early retirement option from ADI. Jack and his wife, Ellen, have two daughters and reside in Chelmsford, MA.
