AGL 192: Data Visualization from Jack Tompkins

About Jack

Jack Tompkins is a partner and founder of Pineapple Consulting Firm, a company that turns data into visualizations, allowing their clients to make more informed strategic choices. Jack has lived in Charlotte since early 2019 (moving away from Connecticut winters) and spent the majority of his professional career in the insurance world. His roles ranged from analyst to product manager, and strategic partnership owner to team manager, all of which helped craft his ability to form Pineapple Consulting Firm. Jack has now taken those analytical, financial, and partnership skills and offers them to small and medium-sized businesses that know how powerful data can be, but don’t have the internal resources to turn their data into a powerful business asset. With a strong drive to work with people (not just numbers!), Jack aims to have some fun working with clients while analyzing and visualizing their data through Excel and Tableau dashboards so clients’ past performance can inform their future strategy.
