Driving growth and industry leadership got into Jeff’s blood early starting with his first job at a VC-backed start-up that went public and transformed an industry. Motivated by that experience, Jeff pursued his MBA at the MIT Sloan School of Management focusing on technology innovation, marketing and creating competitive advantage through digital technology. Over the past 20+ years, Jeff has honed these skills with B2B software, SaaS, cloud and technology companies.
After business school, Jeff joined the leading operations management consulting firm (Pittiglio Rabin Todd and McGrath – now part of PwC) focused on high growth technology companies. PRTM focused on “results, not reports” – a guiding philosophy that continues to drive Jeff’s work and approach to growth marketing.
Jeff loves applying the skills and best practices he has mastered over his career to businesses - small and large - that are seeking to accelerate growth and increase ebitda.
Jeff is the founder of the MIT CIO Symposium, the largest CIO event in the Northeast. Jeff received his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of California Santa Barbara, and his MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management.

“Jeff helped our business understand the power of embracing an outside-in, customer centric perspective. Under his guidance, the business built capabilities around collecting and applying customer insight. Starting with a voice-of-customer research study, our marketing, sales and product teams found common ground in the pain points and value drivers of each key persona. This customer centricity combined with a deep understanding of GTM strategy frameworks helped to drive alignment across multiple teams and stakeholders.”
