ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Jeff applies his thirty-years of experience building startups and executing mergers and acquisitions to now incubate, accelerate, and invest in small and mid-size companies.  He has enjoyed extraordinary success in business and life, as well as overcome great failure, all which provide ABA clients a rare library of wisdom for not only building significant shareholder value, but also protecting it.  Jeff’s commitment to stand up for what’s right following the 2008 Financial Crisis, and the resulting legal challenges, are the topics of multiple books and national articles.

            Jeff is generous with his expertise in leadership and management, financial statements and strategies, sales and growth outperformance, and operational efficiencies to increase gross and net margins.  On top of everything, Jeff’s engaging personality and commitment to joint success create an enjoyable experience with advisor and client in the boat together rowing in the same direction.
