Jerry Paytas

Vice President, Research & Analytics

Jerry founded Fourth Economy in 2010 with Rich. He loves working with clients who are curious, driven, and believe in the power of data and information. He’s good at figuring out how to analyze information that may not have a standard resource or method and then condensing the results to help clients reduce uncertainty and develop an implementable path forward. Jerry has an analytical mind and brings a critical eye to ideas and projects. Jerry serves on the boards of Landmarks Development Corporation and the University of Pittsburgh Human Stem Cell Research Oversight Committee.
