Jeff is not just an Executive Producer; he’s a powerhouse leader, a partner, an event strategist, and an overall good human. His unique ability to create an alchemy between creativity, client needs, and practical execution is what sets him apart. He takes tremendous pride in both large accomplishments and the success of small things, earning client trust and creating sustainable agency-client partnerships that span years, projects, careers, and co-workers. Jeff’s client leadership and event acumen lead to bigger, more effective partnerships and enrich the TRADEMARK culture. 

Through his leadership, TRADEMARK teams consistently ensure that every event holds a lasting significance for clients and attendees. Jeff has served in virtually every capacity and honed his skills in each element of managing client and vendor relationships, teams and partners, and achieving optimal outcomes. He has played key roles in account management, production, content creation, event structure and vision, execution, and client advocacy. Jeff’s experience and leadership style make him an effective leader for internal team members, vendors, hotels and venues, and client partners alike.

TRADEMARK is built on creativity, courage, diversity, and innovation. Our mission is to create experiences that break boundaries and spark new ideas and relationships between clients and their audiences. Since joining the TRADEMARK team, Jeff has orchestrated extraordinary, immersive experiences for some of TRADEMARK’s most esteemed clients, including Appian, Electronic Arts, Lucasfilm, Lyft, Okta, and Slack. In addition to his expanded client service role, Jeff will continue to set the standard of excellence for event production and partner with, mentor, and advise TRADEMARK team members in event delivery. He will also take a more active role in creating and promoting TRADEMARK’s culture of always learning, giving back, and expanding boundaries.

Jeff’s superpower is that he has earned the trust of everyone he’s worked with in the event ecosystem, which he brings to bear for our clients no matter the event size, scope, location, or degree of difficulty. Jeff is curious, dedicated, creative, and resilient. His example of growing and learning alongside our innovative clients, partners, and team members allows us to push the boundaries of what’s possible, whether digital or in-person. He’s a true rock star both inside and outside, and we value his contribution to our clients’ successes, TRADEMARK’s growth, and our culture.
