Ethan Jacks has been involved in M&A and corporate finance for over 30 years. As a corporate lawyer and partner in firms including McDermott, Will and Emery, Ethan represented buyers, sellers and investors in high-tech industries, with a focus on media and communications. In 1991, Ethan left private law practice to become co-founder and senior executive at Molten Metal Technology, a groundbreaking environmental technology company which commercialized MIT-developed intellectual property, raised over $400 million in growth capital, and grew to a public market valuation of over $1 billion.
Ethan moved to digital media pioneer Avid Technology in 1999, and for over 7 years served in several senior executive positions, including EVP of Corporate Development, Chief Legal Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Ethan helped drive Avid's strategy to grow both organically and through aggressive M&A, leading a total of 12 acquisitions of private and publicly held companies that fueled growth in Avid's film, video, audio and 3D sectors. In that period, Avid's revenue doubled to $1 billion, and its market valuation grew from $400 million to $2.5 billion.
