A Message from David Foss

Board Chair, President, and CEO

Sustainability has been, and will always be, an important part of Jack Henry’s culture and commitment to developing strong client relationships and sound technology. Our commitment enables our associates, clients, and communities to succeed – not just for today, but for tomorrow. Our Sustainability Report is our way of summarizing the standards and practices we’ve been dedicated to for more than 40 years.

We recognize that corporate responsibility is a journey and that we’ll never really “arrive.” However, we are committed to making progress over time and being transparent with the progress we make.

We exist in a world that is ever-changing, and we continually find ourselves adapting. Despite the changing times, one thing that remains constant is Jack Henry’s commitment to championing corporate responsibility and ensuring that the actions we take today benefit the world tomorrow. I am confident that together, we can face any challenge before us. I look forward to maturing our sustainability efforts by empowering our associates, communities, and business to prosper while respecting the environment we work in and the Earth’s resources we share. After all, doing the right thing is a key component of our culture.
