Global Impact President and CEO Scott Jackson has worked and traveled from New York to New Delhi, from Washington, D.C., to Dakar, Senegal. His international relief and development efforts have taken him to remote villages in Africa and Asia, to the heart of the Holy Land, and inside some of the most powerful institutions and governments around the world. He’s worked in more than sixty countries, met four U.S. presidents and worked with their administrations, and represented international development issues with the offices of U.S. Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell, and Hillary Clinton. Before joining Global Impact as CEO in October 2011, Jackson worked in senior posts for World Vision U.S. and PATH. During his early career, he served as assistant to a U.S. congressman and founded an international trade consortium. Before that, he picked strawberries to help feed his family. In 1992 and 1996, Jackson served as part of Bill Clinton’s Washington state campaign. In 1992 he held the role of finance director. In 2004, he became a founding member of The ONE Campaign executive committee. A year later he traveled to Uganda to raise awareness about war criminal Joseph Kony. The people Jackson met during that trip moved him deeply, none more than the child he’d first seen on a display board at a World Vision sponsorship concert five years earlier. Scott’s relationship with Simon would continue to change both their lives for years to come.
