“We are honored to have Jack Stack join us as a keynote speaker,” said John Chalifoux, president and COO, MERA. “Jack is a business leader and an icon in the remanufacturing industry.”
Stack has been called “the smartest strategist in America” by Inc. Magazine and one of the “top 10 minds in small business” by Fortune Magazine. A pioneer of the leadership model known as open-book management, Stack is the author of two books on the subject, “The Great Game of Business” and “A Stake in the Outcome.” His expertise in using the open-book model has helped SRC Holdings start, acquire and own more than 60 businesses and create thousands of jobs since 1983.
Stack has served as a world judge for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards Institute and as an adviser for the group since 1998. He designed the first-ever United Way Entrepreneurial Fund to encourage innovation within the non-profit community. He also has served as a contributor for Inc. Magazine and The New York Times and has addressed thousands of audiences on the topic of open-book management.
The conference theme will seek to link remanufacturing with an organization’s overall sustainability strategy, raise awareness about the contributions of the remanufacturing industry and offer networking opportunities.
