John Jackson

Chief Information Officer

I was born in Hooksett, NH, and moved to Gorham, NH at a young age. Living in northern New Hampshire, you can imagine the feeling of a small town in the mountains, with not much going on. At a young age though, I always found joy in technology and my father helped nurture that seeing that I had a knack for it. I learned the mountains were not the place for me long-term, and after finishing high school I drove across the country to Las Vegas for a change of scenery, and to learn more about what I wanted out of life. After a few years working in the Wireless Industry as it was gaining traction, I received a call from a childhood friend, Chris Dagesse, asking if I’d be interested in a new adventure in the automotive industry alongside him in Southern Florida.

I proceeded to dip my toes into automotive sales, website management, and continued to steer toward the technology aspect of the business. As the company shifted and grew, we moved to Delaware in 2008 to start the new adventure of DCD Automotive Holdings. Upon the growth and move to Massachusetts territory, I advanced to the senior role of Chief Information Officer and now oversee all aspects of I.T for Delaware, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire Locations; and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us and this company.

My time spent not in front of the computer consists of motorcycles & racing, woodworking projects in the garage, and spending time at concerts enjoying the moment with my long-term girlfriend, Alyssa. We also enjoy spending our time hiking, camping, and kayaking in the summer months with our dog Ellie.
