Jeff is a founding partner of East West and his focus is on the customer. From identifying companies in need of offshore manufacturing services, evaluating projects for an effective fit, to oversight of the customer service and logistics teams at East West, Jeff combines a personal approach with extensive problem-solving skills to provide one-of-a-kind service to each client. Prior to co-founding East West, Jeff was VP of Research and Engineering for 11 years at DiversiTech Corporation and began his career as a process engineer for Kimberly-Clark. Little known fact: Jeff has 8 US Patents!
Jeff left St. Simons Island to attend Georgia Tech. After a brief stint in North Carolina, he has called Atlanta home ever since. Jeff has been married for nearly 25 years and has two daughters; one in Political PR/Communications the other a junior in high school. He is an ardent supporter of Atlanta Public Schools, active with the North Atlanta HS Foundation, and you’d be hard pressed to get him to give up his weekly basketball games!
When asked what do you want to be remembered for, “A good husband, father, and entrepreneur that will work diligently to solve any customers’ problem, whether it is cost, quality, or reliability.” An engineer by training he has a knack for problem solving and number crunching. What he claims as persistence, his wife calls being stubborn. What you may not know about Jeff: he was one of a few that were sad to see the Atlanta Thrashers (NHL) leave the city; on three separate occasions has caught a baseball at an Atlanta Braves game; and he’s played golf on the Old Course at St. Andrews twice! Which technically makes him half-Scottish now?
