Jeff’s career began as a Bank Examiner with the FDIC. In that role, he conducted over 100 financial institution examinations, assessing the strength of the bank’s management team, capital adequacy, asset quality, earnings, liquidity, and overall risk profile. He specialized in commercial lending and also taught financial analysis in Washington D.C.
After eight years, he moved into the private sector, where he oversaw the credit and loan review function for a group of five mid-size banks.
Sensing a call to work more closely with students, and driven by a curiosity for how people grow, he then pursued a Master’s Degree at Denver Seminary.
Since that time, Jeff has been involved in writing, speaking, helping students, serving various churches, and most recently, founding Trailhead Coaching in 2012. All along the way, he’s been passionate about helping others grow, living wholehearted, courageous lives. His 25 years as an executive, a pastor, and a coach make him uniquely suited for this position.
