By the end of 1996 an opportunity presented itself to Mr. Lopez, where he founded JCL Industries, LLC, a Corporate Consulting Firm providing statistical predictive analytics to multinational manufacturers and firms. This took Lopez on a path through project management opportunities for Department of Defense Contractors, process, procedures and protocol development for medical and pharmaceutical firms, and risk assessment/management jobs across the country.
