Prominent Technologies, LLC
Jackie Meck is owner and President of Prominent Technologies, LLC, a software development and technology consulting firm based in Jackson, Mississippi.
Jackie has positioned Prominent as a “technical backshop” for a variety of small and large business customers. Companies want to focus on their core business, and Prominent has achieved success by partnering alongside them with software automation, internet management and technology consulting.
Prior to starting his own business in 1999, Jackie was employed by two different software development firms in the Jackson area where he gained extensive experience in the insurance and healthcare technology fields.
His computer education began in the 4th grade due to visionary rural educators who invested in new Radio Shack TRS-80 computers. An early sign of his entrepreneurial spirit, he created an early “Print Shop” program in the 6th grade and sold fan-fold banners for 5 cents a letter. In junior high, his first software license was sold and he computerized the required graduation test for the U.S. Constitution. At the urging of his 8th grade teacher, his parents bought him a newly released IBM PC.
In high school, he created a 50 school track & field meet management program which was used for 16 years. He also developed a statistical program for a national championship university baseball team.
In college, he developed a personalized scheduling system for 250 campus orientation volunteers. He also created an intelligent seat reservation system for events in a 12,000 seat arena.
An early advocate of internet technology, his first web site was developed in 1995 as the internet came into being. He has spoken at numerous conferences and trade shows about the benefits of emerging technologies.
A native of Arizona, Jackie attended Baylor University and was graduated in 1993 with a Bachelors of Business Administration Degree in Entrepreneurship and Information Systems.
Jackie lives in Jackson, Mississippi, with his wife Dr. Shani K. Meck, and three children, Gracie, William & Audrey.
