Touching the heights of success is something that almost every person has in his bucket list, but wait a minute! Is everyone aware of what all it needs to be successful? Here is the inspiring story of Dr. Jack Kavanaugh defining the journey of success in his way.
Formerly a dentist, then a businessman, and an ophthalmologist as well, Dr. Jack Kavanaugh has set new standards in every field of his practice. However, it all started with an accident during his practice as a successful dentist. He broke his neck and a leg, which interrupted his practice as a dentist.
Well, Kavanaugh isn’t among the ones who give up on things easily. It was the same belief and determination that he could go on to earn his M.B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles. Later, he began to apply his insights in mergers and acquisitions with one of his former partners. In the year 1948, they collectively formed a management and M.B.A. consulting firm named International Strategy Consulting Group.
Even though his career began to settle in private equity, he returned to medicines and completed his M.D. from the University of Southern California. He has completed his surgical residency from Jules Stein Institute, U.C.L.A. However, he continued being a part-time professor at the University.
While he was in the beginning year of his residency, he came up with Amerident. The health care service provider was recognized for its exemplary service with more than 30 community service awards along with a state congressional medal of honor.
Even if the work with Amerident is kept aside, there are several instances for setting up standards. He has played an active role in hosting the first board meeting for Calhoun Vision, Inc. This biotechnology firm holds the credit for developing an intraocular lens, light adjustable at his home.
Dr. Kavanaugh also holds the credit of Novonco Therapeutics, Zeta Rx Biosciences, Inc., Materia Inc., and the list goes on. His interests have also reached the extent of the emerging energy field. Being one of the founders and chairman of Nanotech Energy, Inc., he has authorized a leading super capacitor intellectual property from U.C.L.A.
No matter even if it is Jack Kavanaugh as an entrepreneur or an ophthalmologist, the list of achievements goes on. In addition to all of these, Kavanaugh along with his wife are supporters of several charitable efforts in and around Los Angeles. This includes Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, The Art of Elysium, and The Virginia Robinson Gardens.
