John (Jack) Ives
Jack Ives is a passionate entrepreneur who, for the past 20 years, has brought new technologies and solutions to market in applications engineering, internet software and three-dimensional (3D) re-creations. As CyberExtruder’s President and Chief Operating Officer for the past 12 years he has moved the company from an initial start-up to a commercially successful enterprise. He serves as the interpreter of customer’s needs, guiding the technical team to shape CyberExtruder’s software into applications that address business and operational requirements.
CyberExtruder is known for its reconstruction technology transforming 2D images to 3D models, which was first used by the entertainment industry to personalize video games and apps for mobile devices. As the company’s technology continued to advance it generated interest from the security community. Today, under Ives’ leadership, CyberExtruder’s software helps intelligence, security and law enforcement organizations solve the hard problems when trying to identify persons of interest.
Jack has led the company’s initiatives to apply for and secure patents and has garnered four (4) US Patents for methods to generate a three-dimensional representation from a two-dimensional image. He’s also secured similar patents from the European Patent Organization to extend the company’s intellectual rights protection into EU and Pacific Rim countries.
CyberExtruder was created as the natural progression from Ives’ previous company, Blue Skye Interactive, an early provider of enterprise level Internet tools and consulting services. His customers included Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, Intel Corporation, J.P. Morgan and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
Ives’ finance experience raising private capital and as a certified broker with boutique New York investment firms has enabled him to use his entrepreneurial sensibilities to create and structure companies for investment value. He has held multiple licenses from the National Association of Securities Dealers.
