Michael Jackson, CEO/Partner at Statistical Energy LLC, graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry in 1999.
Michael got his start in the energy business in 2000 when he started working for Cass Information Systems Inc. (“Cass”) as National Account Manager. At Cass, Michael managed the energy costs and energy bill payment deliverables for 10 to 15 Fortune 100 companies (in excess of $1 billion in utility payables). In 2004, Michael became a Senior Energy Analyst for National Water & Power (“NW&P”). At NW&P, he was responsible more managing the energy and utility needs for many of the firm’s clients in the multifamily industry. In 2010, Michael went to work on the client side of the energy industry when he was hired at Sanimax as their North American Energy Manager. At Sanimax, Michael managed a $50 million energy portfolio for all the companies’ North American biodiesel manufacturing locations. Not only did he reengineer and improve the energy procurement processes at Sanimax, but he also gained valuable insight into how clients manage and purchase energy. In 2010, Michael became a Major Accounts Manager for an Ohio based energy brokerage firm. Ron Cantlie (President of Statistical Energy LLC) and Michael were business development partners at this energy brokerage firm and they became the firm’s most successful energy brokerage team, managing an energy portfolio (over 1 billion kWh of electricity and over 500 million dekatherms of gas) for clients with locations in over 10 deregulated states. In summary, not only does Michael have experience working in the payment processing, electric and gas brokerage, energy consulting, and client sides of the energy industry, but he also has significant experience working with “other utilities” including water, sewer, waste, telecom and propane. Michael is also known for educating current and potential clients on alternative risk strategies for optimizing electric and gas procurement purchases.
On January 25, 2018, both Michael Jackson and Ronald Cantlie purchased a significant majority ownership percentage in Statistical Energy LLC. As a result of this new ownership structure and the additional resources and energy expertise they bring to the firm, Statistical Energy LLC is positioned well for continued growth and evolvement in the years to come.
Michael currently resides in New Albany, Ohio with his wife, daughter, and son.
