Jody Jankovsky, Founder and Managing Member of Black Line® IT, has developed a unique perspective on the small and midsized business market. Time and time again, Jody witnessed small and midsized businesses suffer from being underserved by IT services. So, in 1993, Jody formed Black Line IT to help solve this problem.
Jody has developed a unique set of skills throughout his career that combines deep technical knowledge with seasoned business experience. He started his career providing software development services to small businesses while earning his Computer Science degree from Illinois State University. After graduation, Jody continued his career with Arthur Andersen S.C., a then premier public accounting firm, followed by Greenbrier and Russell, a large IT Consultancy. Throughout it all, Jody knew things could be done better for small and midsized businesses, and he ultimately took a leap of faith and transitioned out of a corporate role to form Black Line IT.
Jody’s combination of skills ensures the appropriate balance between the needs of a business with the IT solutions available. In addition, a long service career has taught Jody the significance of addressing a business’s day-to-day technology needs with the appropriate level of urgency – something he instills daily into the culture of his Black Line team. In his free time, Jody enjoys building model rockets, is training to be a private pilot, and loves all things related to the country’s space program. If you know an astronaut, he would love an introduction!
