Jeff Jackson, CEO and president of PGT Innovations.

Jeff Jackson, president and CEO of PGT Innovations Inc., was recently named to Florida Trend’s Florida 500 list, an annual section that highlights Florida’s most influential business leaders.

A company press release indicates this is the second year that Jackson has been chosen for the selective guide. Spanning 60 categories, 500 executives were selected based on contacts in regional business circles, hundreds of interviews, and months of research, culminating in a highly selective biographical guide to the people who really run Florida, the press release says. The manufacturing category in the guide included 12 individuals.

Jackson joined PGT Innovations in 2005 as the company’s vice president and chief financial officer. He was instrumental in taking PGT Innovations’ public through the New York Stock Exchange in 2016. In 2018, he was promoted to president and CEO. Throughout his 18-year tenure, company officials say Jackson has continued to foster a culture that thrives on “inventing, building, and delivering solutions to enhance people’s lives.”

“It is an incredible honor to be named to Florida Trend’s Florida 500 list,” Jackson says. “To be thought of as one of the state’s most influential business leaders across many major industries is not something that I take lightly. Our team members are the true success of our organization, and I couldn’t be the executive I am today without them.”
