Director - Advisory Board
Barrett-Jackson Chairman and CEO Craig Jackson is honored to be at the helm of a family-owned company that was founded in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1971 by his father Russ Jackson and family friend Tom Barrett. Craig took the reins of the auctions in 1995 and has grown the company’s events from among the best collector car auctions in the world into automotive lifestyle events unlike any other.
Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, welcomes hundreds of thousands of attendees each year at events in Scottsdale, Palm Beach, Las Vegas and New Orleans. These luxury automotive lifestyle events offer thousands of the most sought-after, unique and valuable vehicles on the auction block in front of a global audience.
Having just celebrated the company’s 50th anniversary in 2022, Craig has long been committed to using Barrett-Jackson’s world-famous auction block as a platform to raise much-needed awareness and funds for charitable organizations. To date, over $153 million has been raised across the company’s auction venues throughout the United States for charity.
Jackson has been named twice to Motor Trend’s Top 50 Power List in the automotive industry and has also captured the coveted Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the Business Services category.
