With an MBA and undergraduate degree in accounting, Marty has engaged in several projects and roles as a Business Solutions provider. Prior to working in the Software Industry, Marty was an accountant with manufacturing companies. He began working with ERP software packages during his time at Lilly Software. During this time, he had the opportunity to work with both Tim and Jack.
He has diversified experience in manufacturing and financials, for more than 25 years in the software industry, which continues to strengthen my ability to provide solutions.
" I am excited to have partnered with this team, I know our shared experiences will help to grow our business."
After receiving a degree in Accounting, Jack started to work for his in-law's Tool & Die business – established in 1965. His first introduction (other than books) to cost accounting was as a controller with many responsibilities – including job costing.
After leaving the shop, he went to work for a software company – Lilly Software, working with VISUAL Products. While he worked on the Financial part of the ERP, he had broad exposure to manufacturing. Again cost accounting played a large part in what he did at Lilly Software. During this time, he met Tim and Marty.
He then started Travis Consulting, where he sold and serviced VISUAL customers, and we were one of the first VISUAL Jobshop partners.
Jack has been on both sides of 'managing partner' and being a partner as he worked for other software companies over the years. He is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Forensic Accounting.
