Important Announcement: Eric Barrett is stepping down as Executive Director

Social: 

After 4.5 years, Eric Barrett has decided to step down as Executive Director of JumpStart Georgia to explore new opportunities. He will continue his affiliation with JumpStart as a member of our Board of Directors and as a volunteer.
 

Beginning in 2012, Eric transitioned JumpStart Georgia from open mapping to a data visualization and communication organization. Eric has lead a team of creative problem solvers that embrace technology to solve data communications problems with easy-to-understand multimedia such as infographics, gifographics, interactive data visualizations, and more.
 

“I am very proud to have steered JumpStart in the direction we find it moving today: a global leader in data communication with a dedicated team that cares about making complex issues accessible to everyone using beautiful design. Through our School of Data, we share and teach others to collect, analyze, and visualize data, because we think it is important that everyone consider who their audiences are and how to talk with them. Complex does not mean impossible, it means it is time to innovate.That is what JumpStart does.”
 

We thank Eric for his direction and wish him well in his new endeavors!
 

We'll be hiring a new Executive Director shortly. Help JumpStart find our next director by sharing the job description: http://bit.ly/EDvacancy
