Jeff’s entrepreneurial vision is represented throughout his career, but is most evident during his time at The Strive Group, a leading manufacturer of merchandising display solutions, design, packaging services and concept development with fourteen locations across the United States. Here he served as Chief Executive Officer and Board Member from its inception until its successful sale in 2012. Jeff provided the foresight and infrastructure to transform the business from a traditional packaging company to a world-class supply chain merchandising organization.
Previously he served as President of Pride Container Corporation, the Strive Group’s predecessor organization from 1997 to 2000, as well as World Xpress, a company he founded and managed from 1991-1997. World Xpress would later evolve into Strive Logistics in 2004. Today, Jeff dedicates his time to Dréim Capital with partners Mark Giesen and David Steinberg.
Jeff attended Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado as well as the University of Wisconsin in Stout, Wisconsin. He later received his MBA at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. He is presently active on many boards and involved with the World Presidents’ Organization.
