About Jerry Michalski
In the course of a dozen years as a technology industry analyst, Jerry realized he wasn't fond of the word "consumer". Being mindful of the word led him to the idea that consumer mass-market capitalism is being replaced by interactions based on trust and authentic relationships. He calls it the Relationship Economy.
In 2010 Jerry launched REX, the Relationship Economy eXpedition, which brings together change-makers in various industries to figure out how these new forces will affect their industries, companies, careers -- and the broader world.
Prior to his stint as a tech analyst, Jerry was a strategy consultant, freight rate clerk and Jungle Cruise captain. He has a BA in Economics from UCI and an MBA from The Wharton School.
