Capt. Jackson L Ritchie, CEO

After 1 1/2 years working with a Bank directly after leaving school, I joined the military.                                         
During my 5-year tenure with the newly formed Royal Bahamas Defense Force, I maximized the opportunity to expand on my education and experience by training with the Royal Navy at the Britannia Royal Naval College in England & working as a team leader in real-time law enforcement and military action. Then, in 1983 I moved back into the commercial world and worked as the Assistant Port Director at Freeport Harbour for another 8 years, setting the foundation for my next 30 years as a successful entrepreneur, business owner, and employer. 
                                               
I have started nine (9) businesses, two I still owned and operated, and 3 have been sold and remain successful operations. Forming each was accompanied by a series of successes and disappointments; however, I gained many valuable lessons that I would like to share with you.

I am currently involved in Business Development for a major New York Investment Bank connecting Entrepreneurs with sources of capital for acquisitions and expansion of their businesses.

 

I also provide consultancy services for business development Globally, focusing on the Internation Maritime sector,  and any type of business in the Bahamas, and the Caribbean.
