John B. Jackson, director of the Center for Entrepreneurship, has been named to the board of directors of Versant International Inc., an Irvine-based financial investment company.

Jackson has taught marketing and sales classes at Cal State Fullerton since 2003. A 1977 business administration alumnus and entrepreneur with his own small-business consulting firm, he has served as a corporate vice president overseeing sales, marketing and research for high-technology businesses, including Bowne and Co. and Forrester Research.

Last spring, a team of undergraduate business students from Jackson's "Marketing for Entrepreneurs" course won the top prize in the Small Business Institute's Student Consulting Project of the Year Competition.
