Executive Vice PresidentEmail Forrest Jackson
Forrest Jackson joined Cotton Commercial USA, Inc. in 2005 with over fifteen years of experience in the construction and hospitality industries. Since then, Mr. Jackson has assisted Cotton’s multiple divisions during numerous disasters, domestically and internationally. Through his hard work and strong leadership skills, Mr. Jackson quickly advanced through the company ranks to Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Cotton’s Restoration and Construction Sales Team.
After responding to a large oil spill in 2010, in which Cotton provided temporary workforce solutions, Mr. Jackson was tasked with evolving a logistics services segment that would provide operational support and infrastructure for workforce housing. In December 2011, Mr. Jackson was promoted to Executive Vice President and launched Cotton Logistics in 2012.
Mr. Jackson and his team quickly grew the division into an industry leader in workforce housing, temporary facilities, emergency response, and culinary services. Most recently, Mr. Jackson evolved the Cotton Logistics division to include emergency response solutions that allow for the rapid mobilization of support crews, assets, and equipment for frontline support, ranging from temporary facilities to remote site catering.
Forrest’s unique experience, along with his task-oriented leadership skills, is well received by clients, resulting in strong customer loyalty. Mr. Jackson has worked on some of Cotton’s most challenging projects with some of the most aggressive deadlines and is always able to deliver solutions to our customers in their time of need.
Forrest graduated from Texas Tech University in 1991 with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Restaurant Hotel and Institutional Management.
