Jack Bergman (Northern '16)

Jack Bergman is a 2016 graduate of Walled Lake Northern HS. While at Northern, he participated in NHS, football, cross country, and track. He was also a tech intern during his senior year.

After high school, he received a Bachelor of Science in computer science with a concentration in computer systems at Michigan Technological University. While at Michigan Tech, he was the President of Red Team Cybersecurity Organization (a club in which they participated in hacking competitions with other universities),  received an Award for Excellence in Leadership and participated as a speaker at the Great Lakes Security Conference. He graduated in 2020.

Jack started working for Airboss of America as a summer intern in 2017. This turned into a part time job where he continued working remotely from college. The next summer, he began working there full time. He worked for them either in-person or remotely for the remaining two years of college.

Since graduating college, he continued with Airboss and is currently the Director of IT Security and Operations. Airboss is a manufacturing company specializing in defense, chemicals and automotive. Jack oversees all IT operations including security throughout North America. His job includes travel in the US and Canada. His position has allowed him the opportunity to lead and mentor interns.

He’s done volunteer work to help nonprofits with IT security for their organization, and he also performs cybersecurity consultation for other organizations. 

In his free time, he enjoys hiking, outdoor activities, researching programming, and writing software for security tools.

One of the things Jack really enjoyed about his time at Northern was his job as an IT co-op working for Walled Lake Schools during his senior year. This fueled his interest in technology and gave him hands on experiences in the field before he even got to college.

He worked with staff at both Northern and Pleasant Lake and found them to be friendly and a pleasure to work with. Cheryl Roden was his teacher/boss for this experience. She offered great insight and support in the work he was doing. Some advice he would give students is to find something about which you are passionate. If you do that, it won't feel like work.
