Jack Wagner moved to Ford’s Colony in Williamsburg in 2013 with his wife Suzanne, a retired teacher. Originally from Lockport NY, he graduated from Kenyon College and entered the USAF in the field of Information Technology (IT). At his 1st duty assignment in Sacramento, CA he met & married Suzanne, relocated to Wiesbaden, Germany for 4 years, earned his MBA & returned to Colorado Springs, CO where he left the service to pursue a business career. This included Account Management with a leading computer company, Management Consulting with two of the Big Four Accounting Firms, becoming President of an International Software Company, and then Chief Information Officer of a $23 Billion Financial Services Firm in NYC. He then started his own consulting firm, EXECUTEC, LLC, where he continues to support clients in Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Planning.
Once in VA, he joined the James City Lions Club and participated in the Chamber of Commerce’s Community Leadership Services (CLS) Program. Following its completion, he pursued his passion for the Arts by joining the Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra Board of Trustees and serving two terms as Chairman of Education Outreach involving youth programs. He currently serves as the Strategic Planning Chair on the CLS Board and leads their Arts & Culture Day. Within the Colony, he served as VP of the Newcomers Club, Chair of the Activities Committee, Pianist for the Ford’s Colony Dance Band and became President & Pianist of the FC Theater Club. When he is not consulting and/or volunteering, he enjoys the game of Golf.
His love for dancing began at High School “Sock-Hops” during the R&R era and continued with his wife in Ice-Dancing, Ballroom Dancing, & currently Tap Dancing. Jack is thrilled to be a participant in this year’s DWTWS and help contribute to such a worthwhile charitable event.
