JT McCormick: How the Son of Pimp Became a CEO

You wouldn’t think someone who grew up in poverty and with an abusive father — who was also a pimp — would end up becoming a successful president and CEO. But that’s the story of JT McCormick. He used lessons he learned as a child, in his first job cleaning toilets, and in how his father treated others to become the man he is now.

JT McCormick was raised poor and is the son of a pimp. He’s now the President & CEO at Book in a Box and was the President of technology company HeadSpring previously. He’s also the author of I Got There: How I Overcame Racism, Poverty, and Abuse to Achieve the American Dream.
