“I genuinely enjoy helping people accomplish their goals and solving problems with win-win solutions.”

Jeff joined Cornerstone in 2016, bringing 35 years of experience in the ownership and sales of businesses. His diverse business background and practical approach make him especially adept at increasing organizational and procedural efficiency while allowing businesses to grow in sales and profitability.

In 2005, Jeff purchased an elevator business and took responsibility for the operation, finance, and management of the business. He reorganized and streamlined processes, moved the office and plant to new facilities, and grew existing contract services by 30% before selling the company in 2008.

Over the course of his career, Jeff has operated and sold, a variety of different businesses, including retail products and services businesses, wholesale businesses, business services businesses and manufacturing businesses. As an intermediary, he has sold metalworking job shops, injection molders, equipment manufacturers, equipment dealers, trucking firms, contracting firms and specialty retailers among others.

Growing with the Community

Jeff’s love of the outdoors and gardening give him the skills to grow more than just businesses. Through his church, he began a group that uses a farmer’s land to grow fresh produce for donation to Feeding America. In just the three years (2013-2015), the group has donated over five tons of fresh produce.

Jeff and his wife of over 30 years have raised their two children in Wauwatosa, WI.
