J.P. Hogan, partner
J.P. Hogan is a retired U.S. Army Colonel and goal-driven business leader. In JP's 29-plus years of active service, he served in Southeast and Northeast Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and in the Pacific. He was selected as a commanding officer at multiple levels for US Army units overseas, and served as Chief of Staff for two different senior military staffs.
Following his military service, JP spent more than 10 years working with automotive companies and with the Department of Defense as a consultant and strategic planner. He provided in-plant consultative services to manufacturing management and labor leadership at several Ford locales, managed a group of in-plant training consultants in Visteon faciliites, and provided mentorship support to senior management personnel within DaimlerChrysler. As a senior consultant/strategic planner for Joint Task Force (JTF) 519 at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, JP offered senior-level mentorship for JTF's leaders, provided direct support to operational planning and execution, designed the JTF Knowledge Management System, and served as a primary architect of the JTF decision-making process.
While in the consulting field, JP was introduced to the iMatter Success System. JP was so taken by the power of iMatter that he retired from the consulting business and became a vested partner in iMatter.
In recent years, JP co-founded and operates a leadership development program focused on helping prepare ROTC cadets at several universities in North Texas for their future roles as US Army leaders. The program (Passing the Torch) includes regular coaching, teaching, and a mentoring session with cadets on campus and at various battlefield locations in the US and Europe.
JP completed undergraduate work at Eastern Michigan University, earned a Masters of Public Administration at Shippensburg University and completed post graduate work in Strategic Studies at the US Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsyvlania.
The consistent thread through JP's varied experiences is his appreciation for what the human soul undergoes in tense situations faced by senior leaders in the public, private, and military sectors. This has given him an understanding of the power of sharing, the value of clarity, and the importance of knowing what matters most.
