MBO Partners Spotlights GovCloud Founder Kevin L. Jackson

Associate Spotlight
Interview with Kevin L. Jackson
MBO Associate Since 10/2013

1)    Tell us a little bit about what you do.
I am the CEO and founder of GovCloud Network, LLC. In a consultative role, I help companies develop and execute targeted media strategies via social media channels to over 1.5 million professionals across 20 industry verticals. With a specialty in cloud computing, we and our partners also provide the critical technical training and business education needed to thrive through the use of advanced information technology. For more information, please visit www.GovCloudNetwork.com.

2)    What led you to become an Independent Consultant?
My position as a senior executive at my previous firm didn’t give me the latitude to participate fully in the rapidly growing cloud computing consultative market. I felt that the rewards of becoming an independent consultant in this business area far outweighed the risks.

3)    How has the independent career path changed your life?
Although I now personally drive the success or failure of my professional career, I also have the ability to select projects based on my own personal evaluation of their business merits. I enjoy the flexibility and challenge.


4)    How does MBO Partners make you more successful?
MBO Partners keeps me financially honest and professionally focused. That combination increases my odds of winning in a fiercely competitive marketplace.

5)    What book are you currently reading?
Right now I’m reading The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies by Erik Brynjolfsson, Andrew McAfee and Jeff Cummings. This book takes a look at the forces driving the reinvention of our lives and our economy. It discusses how professions of all kinds are being upended as companies have been forced to transform or die. It tries to answer the question of why fewer workers at lower wages are driving productivity and profits upwards.
