Get to know us

What's with all the pineapples? Here's more about us...


How do we help businesses?

We help you make data-driven decisions by providing custom-built dashboards and analysis. We use your performance data (financial, operations, marketing, etc.) to inform your strategy and build tools that handle the annoying part of data analysis for you, allowing you to easily see and understand your numbers.

Why do we do it?

After years in the corporate world, we realized that we weren't making enough impact on individual people and needed to change that.


Helping and working with people is what drives us. ​We work with people first, then numbers. Building a relationship with you is step one; making sense of your Excel sheets and dashboards comes next.

We put our "big business" skills to use for small businesses - efficiently managing, visualizing, and analyzing your data to extract valuable insights and make financially sound decisions.


We want data analytics to be interesting, fun, and lighthearted — not stiff and boring, which is the reputation that ‘numbers people’ tend to have. When you work with us, you are working with a human who understands the power of data and the importance of strong client relationships. With so many AI tools taking off, our relationship-driven approach is your key advantage.

We aren't going to tell you how to run your business, we just want to help you run it better.

We're here to help!

Why are we "Pineapple" Consulting Firm?

Well, we don't consult pineapples... so this is a pretty fair question.


So "Why Pineapple?" Aside from the fact that "Pineapple Jack" (our founder) honestly just really loves pineapples and beaches, there is actually a correlation between us and the fruit!

We embrace a hospitality-centered approach. 

Pineapples are a symbol of hospitality. When you get a new neighbor, traditionally, you're supposed to give them a pineapple as a welcome to the neighborhood. 


Pineapples also represent vacation to us. Our goal is to help small business owners save enough time and/or money to actually be able to take a vacation. One where they can focus on the beach and what drink they're ordering next.

We want to help you get here!

When I started Pineapple Consulting Firm, the main thing I wanted to do was help and work with people, but I couldn't just offer a nice conversation as a service. 


So I put my two strengths together - analytics, so that I could provide a highly important service to businesses that don't have resources for it, and combined that with my relationship management skills that are really the backbone of the service.  Helping people with important work and even better service.


I've been a leader, an analyst, and managed relationships between Fortune 500 companies.  Being able to combine all of those roles together into one business that much more directly impacts people is a dream come true.  Pineapple Consulting Firm takes the best pieces of corporate America and puts that knowledge to work for business owners in our community.

Hi, I'm Brittany! I've lived all over the country (IN, VA, CA, and now NC); but nothing felt more like home than when I arrived in Charlotte and found Pineapple. I mean it when I say that every day is truly fun and different and most likely filled with a pineapple pun... or four. Just have a conversation with any of us here and you will see what I mean! As part of the team, my role is to ensure smooth operations and efficient processes across all departments, keeping our team running seamlessly. I have had the privilege of learning and implementing this role for a full spectrum of industries from government contracting/defense to healthcare and the outdoor industry for the last 7 and absolutely love what I do!

Hi, I'm Sean, I've been working as a compensation analyst for the past 7 years primarily in the home mortgage space and also have a creative history in graphic design. 


I met Jack at our coworking space here in Charlotte. He told me about his company and vison and knew I had to be a part of what he was building. I bought him a few pineapples - sorry – a few beers, and convinced him to hire me onto his team. My main responsibility on the team is  the construction and build out of the dashboards. I act as a liaison to the client to help understand their vision and needs and turn that into a final product to help support their business.
