John Jacko

Executive Vice President & Chief Growth Officer
Pentair

Since January, Jacko has served as executive vice president and chief growth officer for Pentair, the multinational diversified industrial company. As chief growth officer, the University of New Haven graduate has overseen the company’s strategic planning, business development and corporate branding, and he was integral during the spin-off of its electrical unit in May, which has allowed Pentair to focus on its growing water- and fluid- solutions business. “John epitomizes market-centric and customer-oriented thinking,” said Maximal President Greg DiCillo. “He is a staunch advocate for market-based product management and strategy development. He is forward-thinking, sees the big picture, provides interesting and unique perspectives and articulates his thoughts with clarity and directness.”
