The Job Creators Network (JCN) is a conservative U.S. advocacy group. It was founded by Bernie Marcus, the co-founder and former CEO of Home Depot.

The organization has received significant funding from the Mercer Family Foundation, a private grant-making foundation that invested about $70 million into conservative causes between 2009 and 2014.[1][2][3][4]

According to Mother Jones, JCN's media strategy has been guided by Richard Berman, the lobbyist once dubbed "Dr. Evil" by 60 Minutes for his long history of using front groups, attack dog web sites, and alleged think tanks to attack advocacy groups including the Humane Society and Mothers Against Drunk Driving.[5] Mother Jones reports that his work with JCN "represents a different way of doing business for Berman: He has guided the group's media strategy behind the scenes, while more than three dozen CEOs have publicly signed on to support the organization's mission."[6] While Berman's campaigns are typically comprised of groups operated out of the offices of his PR firm, Berman & Co., JCN was not founded by Berman, nor is it controlled by Berman.[6]
