Founder & President
Jackson Lynch has served as a senior business leader in some of the country’s most iconic brands. He has a reputation for bringing intelligence, warmth, and outstanding people development skills to all that he does. He is a growth-focused human resources leader with a proven track record of looking into complicated organizations and orchestrating a human capital strategy that moves the company to new levels of success.
Jackson had a lengthy career with PepsiCo – Frito Lay where he served in both field generalist and specialist assignments, with rapid advancement. He was placed in a variety of roles that led initiatives in labor relations, business innovation and enterprise-wide change execution. In 2007, Jackson was recruited by former PepsiCo colleagues into Nestlé S.A. where he first built the sales HR team from scratch and later led the development and execution of all people strategies, HR process design, and change efforts during the merger of Nestlé Dreyer’s and the newly acquired Kraft Pizza. He was also responsible for integrating both organizations into Nestlé USA.
Nestlé represented a turning point for Jackson. In meeting the needs of successful mergers and acquisitions, it became clear that human capital issues are often overlooked during ownership transitions. As Chief HR Officer for the Clearwater Paper Corporation Jackson Lynch was responsible for supporting a successful business turnaround by aligning HR strategy and resources with business optimization, margin improvement, and restructuring activities. In his last internal CHRO role, Jackson Lynch served one of the most high profile equity investment firms. During this experience he realized that many of the chronic human capital challenges are generated during those first 90 days, a period that often “goes dark” regarding any transparency with the human capital equation of a purchase.
His role and commitment at 90consulting is to support the overall success of acquisitions by creating transparency and managing all human capital needs during the transition.
Launching 90consulting represents an opportunity to support investors in ways that are gratifying and that give Jackson the freedom he finds every day by playing life one hundred percent.
