They're my school  •  Senior Manager - Financial Services Advisory, Ernst & Young. Previously Manager - Financial Services Advisory, Ernst & Young.
Jeff is a very smart guy who graduated with honors from our top ranked business school program. Jeff has already helped multiple small compa ... nies improve operations / profitability. Would have Jeff on my team any day.
Ben Swartz
They're my school  •  Founding CEO, Marcel Digital. Previously Account Manager, AOL Time Warner.
Because I am frustrated to only be allowed 3 descriptors in the previous question. He is also a risk taker. And resourceful. And patient. An ... d extremely intelligent. In grad school, he was out with the fun crowd all night but always in class in the morning and I do not recall him receiving less than an A although it must have happened. He is the rare combination of analytical and creative. He rarely does not understand what he is learning and typically at a deep enough level to know it for life. Many of our discussions are around business ideas. I throw out a high level concept, he asks great questions until the idea is fleshed out.
Kim Gehling
We worked together  •  President, Websites to Impress. Previously User Interface Design Contractor, John Deere.
Jeff has helped me turn my mildly profitable business into a very profitable business through his analysis and recommendations. He is a very ... persistent, intelligent and driven person that would be a valuable asset to any project or team that is seeking success.
James Janega
We worked together  •  Management Consultant, Slalom Consulting. Previously Specialist Reporter, Blue Sky Innovation | Chicago Tribune.
I worked with Jeff on a small team that pitched starting a biotech startup that was a finalist in the Global New Venture Challenge. While wo ... rking with pharma subject matter experts, Jeff provided an important voice of reason that kept the project grounded in reality and which improved the quality and execution of the idea. Further, he was task and priority-oriented enough to get those thrilling ideas assigned and completed. I would unhesitatingly work with him again, and think he'd be a valuable member of any new or rapidly growing enterprise.
Andrew Foerderer
We worked together  •  Product Program Manager, John Deere. Previously General Manager (Ex Pat), John Deere India.
I've worked with Jeff for nearly 15 years, and have always been impressed with his drive to develop solutions based on customer needs as wel ... l as his ability to challenge the status quo and influence in the organization accordingly.
